22 September 2011 | by (Houston, Texas) – See all my reviews

I really wanted to like this show more. It seemed like the perfect lead-in for Raising Hope, which is one of my favorite comedies. Maybe it was the fact that the funniest parts had been shown repeatedly in promotions, or maybe it was the anticipation of Zooey Deschanel being on television, but in the end I felt like the show did not live up to my expectations. The pilot episode came off as mediocre at best.

The character Zooey Deschanel portrayed is not unlike ones she has played in movies, which is certainly its redeeming quality. The three male characters are pretty interesting, my only concern is that one or more of them may be too stereotypical. The end of the episode seemed a little predictable and the genuineness of the characters was rather unconvincing - more to do with the writing than the acting, but it's understandable that it's difficult to complete a story in such a short period of time.

I think this episode shows that the series has some promise and I will watch it again next week.
