The monkey was originally going to be named Dr. Zaius, after the orangutan scientist in Planet of the Apes (1968). However, the rights of the name could not be obtained, so she was renamed to Dr. Rizzo. See more »
Justin Kirk seemingly reprises his Andy Botwin-esque role as a quippy, flighty and sarcastic Veterinary Doctor. Though not exactly the same character, if nothing but slightly less impetuous, he definitely still has a very similar flavor. Joanna García-Swisher seemed a bit generic, but I think her character has the most potential for growth and would be exciting to see the "will they/won't they" tug-of-war between the two. Bobby Lee seems similar to Ken Jeong's character in Community to where he is really just there to be silly, slightly crazy and maybe even a bit of a racial stereotype. Tyler Labine, who has had some awesome roles in the past (see: Reaper, Tucker & Dale vs. Evil,) seems to be taking on a bit more serious of a role this time around. His character was the most believable to me.
All in all, I liked the show. I feel the characters will have enough of a dynamic to result in some pretty funny scenarios. I think there's plenty of potential for zingers and quick-lipped witticisms, and there will be plenty of room to mold each character as the storyline progresses
All of the other reviews basically say "this show sucks" without giving any sort of actual reason behind their review. I'll admit, I'm basing my review off the pilot alone. This show could go either way, but I see potential.
