By reading the earlier reviews of unsatisfied viewers, it's easy to see that it was only the first few episodes that did not meet expectations. I personally loved the book and found it's off-beat humour to be hilarious and interesting. When I heard the sitcom was in the works, I was skeptical it wouldn't meet my expectations.
Granted, I did not think the first episode was excellent and I worry that too many people judged it right off the bat. It did take the first episode to develop the story but once underway, it is very catchy and one of the few television shows I've had to watch on each new episode day.
Jpod is definitely of interest for anyone who is into satirical comedy and a lover of the original novel. Even if you haven't read the book, the show is a huge success in my mind. I crave each new episode each week.
