The Pilot episode wasn't as strong as it could have been I only tuned in the next week because I was a fan of Bryan Greenburg from his performance on One Tree Hill, and of course Laura Prepon from That 70s Show. Thankfully the show has picked up since then and has built up in storyline (such as the developing relationship between Eddie and Janet which I am hoping will work out). I find the relationship between Nick and his student Aubrey to be quite annoying and hope it will soon end. The appeal of the show is not so much on the main characters but on its subplots; Phil, the man who never leaves the house (which I'm curious if we will find out exactly why), the aforementioned Eddie/Janet goings-on, and Ikey's secret love affair which his best friends wife. I am looking forward to seeing this show a lot more. Hopefully it will be an ABC show that will stick around, lets see if it can withstand the Thursday night slot alongside Ugly Betty and Grey's Anatomy.
