Who's the sound person? The canned laughter is louder than the commentary. Several times I couldn't hear the joke. It might have been funny, who knows.
And who's in charge of the editing? Some of the conversation was actually going somewhere and all of a sudden it was just over, queue the host. Huh?
Also, two many couples. The results definitely felt forced. Just when everyone hit their timing they were on to the next couple. Maybe three but more than that? Send it to Short Attention Span Theater.
It has potential and seems like the hosts are giving their real opinions not what they think the "popular" answer should be. Not to mention that Seinfeld is bringing in A-list guests. Where would you see Larry David, Ricky Gervais, and Madonna discussing relationships? I want to see that.
First things first: fix the sound and editing and try again. It might be actually be a good show if you can hear it and potentially funny parts aren't edited out.
UPDATE 3/16/10: Saw the Larry David, Ricky Gervais and Madonna episode and laughed my butt off! What a great combination of people. And I could hear what they were saying besides which really helps.
I think that the guests will make or break the show. Put the the three above together and they've struck gold.
Now I'm waiting for the third show because that's a potential tie-breaker. Right now though? Love it.
