I Saw a Recent Taping (the fourth episode - air date 9/28)
I was recently a member of the studio audience at a taping of the fourth episode; I also saw the pilot episode. This is a funny show, with several talented actors who embrace their roles. However, it is difficult to tell whether this will be popular enough to be picked up for a second season - I will say that from what I have seen, it is a definite possibility. The plot is fairly complex, although not too complicated for the average viewer to understand. It could probably be improved by trimming some of the excess drama surrounding the core action. I really believe, however, that some of the characters have great appeal - the Kramer of Seinfeld, for example. While the actors have had some experience in other roles, they are mostly unknown; they all appear to have real talent, and this is a possible hit for the fall of 2006.
