I don't know if you get any kudos for starting these show threads, DJariya, but it's much appreciated!

As for this one tonight, I'm not expecting much. Honestly, I don't expect it to make it that much longer. Still, I'll continue to watch since it's a little enjoyable and it has a bit of an AD vibe.

If FOX has something in the bag to replace it, I don't think this show is long for the world.

Easily the funniest episode so far. Loved when Puddle snuck into the vodka cellar: "You shouldn't have heard that...here, drink some Forget Juice".

I'm liking this show more with every episode, Serafanowicz is great, he's been a favorite of mine for years.

Yet another AD reference "I'm freezing my Blue Man Group off over here."

I do like the show a lot more than most of the members here, but the narration is terrible. The show can pretty much get by without it anyway, so it always feels like everything is being explained to the Nth degree. This isn't like Arrested Development where the misunderstandings get so complex that it required a narration, and the narration in that show was far more sophisticated than the one this has.

Best line of the episode was: "I'm using that money to help fight my gambling addiction. I think I'm one big win away from a cure."

I can't believe more people aren't watching this. While it doesn't have the insane complexity that AD had, there are still huge laughs in each episode of this series. Watched all of them this weekend and I love it. Of course it'll now get cancelled...

I think this episode was the funniest because all the actors aren't self-conscious anymore and are just going with the flow script-wise.

Best episode yet, though that's easy to say if you liked AD because it's the "closest" to the AD feel. I enjoy it, though I'm still enjoying Raising Hope (right before it) more.

If they continue to tweak this one and just have fun, it has a lot of promise.

I actually really like this show. Sure it's trying to find its footing at the moment, but the potential is all there.

That being said I just want this show to succeed simply because the world needs Peter Serafanowicz needs to be in everything!

Digging the show and hope it doesn't get cancelled. Just keeps getting better by the week.

This weeks episode will likely be the last. Even Arnett said so on Twitter. I like this show too.
