Loved Madhuri in the huge Viking hat. Other than that, this was a pretty "meh" episode.

Not much love for this show on these boards, but I enjoy it more and more each episode.

I feel like they just need to work on the editing more than anything. Sometimes the sequences seem cut off early or at the wrong point. But the characters have grown on me and the episodes are about as fun as the current Office to me.

I like this show over The Office and 30 Rock, still enjoy Community more on the Thursday NBC line-up.

Excellent episode! Put some humanity into Todd. I really like the chemistry between the actor playing Todd and the actress playing Asha. That small scene between the two was really good.

Nicole Kidman Jr. is very nice looking.

At least on other places online it finds love. 7.8 out of 10 stars currently on IMDB, which is pretty good. There's love out there for it.

The comments from most of the haters I've seen elsewhere online seem to be from people who really aren't watching it and just assume it's racist or stereotypical. One odd comment I found on the IMDB boards was this:

"i wonder how long they can go on the same tired Indian jokes. "whats that dot on your forehead?" "you guys wear funny hats" seriously? no wonder Americans like this show... because it's bad."

I've seen all the episodes so far and I can't even think of one dot joke or one hat joke. At all. I wish people would actually watch something before hating it.

And I don't consider watching one episode (especially the pilot) having an informed opinion at all. The show is pretty consistent and I only think that one of the episodes post pilot was below par.

Funny to see "Kevin" from The League playing Todd's brother. LOL!

And Earl Hickey's mom playing Todd's mom, and "Thatcher" Grey playing his dad.
