Goofs

Britta claims to have been a Peace Corps volunteer after dropping out of high school. This would not be possible as Peace Corps generally requires a minimum of a bachelor's degree for acceptance into its volunteer program; Britta does not have the background for its non-degree positions.

A great Comedy Pilot...
19 June 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have noticed that a lot of my favorite comedies have started off with weak Pilots (Friends, Everybody Loves Raymond, 30 Rock, Parks and Recreation) although some have been incredible since their first episode (Pushing Daises, Modern Family). This is in the latter group, and I am happy to say it.

The Pilot was pretty fantastic. It was funny, charming, and all in all, very likable. The entire cast is pretty wonderful. The writing is top- notch and very tightly written. All in all, this is one to watch. Chevy Chase and Alison Brie are the stand-outs here, although it's hard to choose.
