Goofs

As Felicity Huffman is reading from the cue cards (filmed from behind the card holder) during last-minute rehearsal, she "reads": "Which isn't how we'd do it on Wysteria Lane. On Wysteria Lane we'd invite the suspect over to our book club . . ." The card holder then moves a card from front to back of a stack of three cards. The camera angle changes to the front of the cards, and only one card can be seen, rather than three. That card reads "Which isn't how we'd do it on Wysteria Lane. On Wysteria Lane we'd invite the suspect over to our book club . . ." -- the same words Felicity Huffman had just "read" from the card that was then moved to the back of the stack. See more »

Good But If You Are Looking For "Friends", Watch TBS!
18 September 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I enjoyed the "Pilot" pretty well. I will not lie, I am a huge fan of Mathew Perry and tuned in just for that fact. I have enjoyed just about everything he has ever been in (except of course for "The Whole 10 Yards")

I won't lie, I'm not a huge fan of Anti-Christian television which the whole first episode seemed to revolve around. But I have resigned to the fact that if I am going to watch any new prime time dramas, I can count on 3 of 3 things. 1) If you are a Christian, take EVERY word with a grain of salt, 2) If you are a Red state, anything is fair game, and 3) If you have ANY conservative views, you are stupid.

That being said, the show hopefully will eventually turn toward the interaction between the characters (which is what all the promos showed) instead of turning into a "West Wing Part Duex". That show (The West Wing) was a good show, especially for the first few seasons, but it has run its course and I didn't tune in for that. I tuned in for a funny drama without any obvious political/religious prejudices as a main story line. I'll be watching to see, but only time will tell if this is a true "new" show, or if it follows the same pattern as most all of Sorkin's other shows.
