So much potential.
30 September 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I really want to love this show, the first episode lacked so much though. I'm a huge fan of Andrew due to Book of Mormon so I continuing to watch the show. Each episode is getting better with wittier,edgier writing. Hopefully the writers can step it up a notch and add some depth to each of the characters with some back story and a little more dramatic situations. The relationship between the two main male characters is starting to get less stereotypical but its still there. So far, my favorite scene was the incident with the ignorant father in the store; that displayed daring writing that few public shows dare to go to, especially so early on in their first season. This show has the potential to be great, it just needs support and better writing.
