Well, Gary Cole is in it.

Im not liking the lighting, the police station had a grey haze filter and the apartment has a light brown filter to it.
Like they didn’t have the budget for good lighting.

Someone said 99 looked murky, that’s probably a good description of what this show looks too.

That was a combination Pilot and Series Finale for me.

I saw it was to premier and thought about watching. However, the previews/ads shown during the earlier shows that evening, BBT, Young Sheldon, and Mom, actually made me decide not to even waste my time. Reading above confirmed my decision.

I've watched 3 episodes online and so far I like it. No, it is not going to revolutionize TV comedy, but it has some laughs in it. My only problem is that there's a lot of hugging and learning.
