very cohesive initial effort...

How exciting! A pilot that doesn't throw away the first episode methodically introducing characters but rather jumps into an amusing story that gives us credit for being able to figure it out a little. It reminded me a little of the tone of Arrested Development's pilot in the sense that we are injected into the environment in a less forced way. Actually, it might be the best comedy pilot I've seen since AD. Even the soundtrack evokes the spirit of that classic.

I admit that using such a strategy creates the desire for more story and background immediately, but we must be patient. I would definitely encourage people to watch the episode. For those who love 30 Rock and The Office, I'm almost certain you'll enjoy it. Even if you're not used to "no laugh track" comedies, this will be a great opportunity to open up to the genre. It keeps the show moving at a very pleasant, snappy clip.
