User Reviews

I think I only liked it because of the cast...
26 April 2004 | by (Michigan, USA) – See all my reviews

I watched every episode (were there 6?) of this before it was canceled. Now Jason Schwartzman is def. one of my favorite actors, I love most things Mike White does (i.e. The Good Girl) and Molly Shannon? Well let's just say I'm one of the biggest SNL buffs ever

But the show? Eh, I liked it, but it didn't really make me laugh... The performances were great (bonus points for featuring Zooey Deschanel in an episode) but I just... ack. Didn't like it. The pilot episode had reeeally bad exposition, that kinda stood out... it tried to be funny lots of times that it really wasn't... Points also deducted for putting Jack Black in.

Don't think I'd recommend it to anyone who, uh, isn't me.
