Christina Applegate better on Samantha Who?
19 January 2012 | by Maniac-9See all my reviews

This is definitely not Christina Applegate's best series she has done. Samantha Who? she played a really interesting character who really got a lot of character development. Here it's basically a paint by the numbers show with unoriginal humor and the premise of the show gets put on hold when they fell like it. It just seems like the actors on the show are going through the motions and collecting a paycheck. Jason Lee while only a recurring character is basically wasted also.

The writing is very lacking where you don't really care about any of the characters whether they are main or supporting characters. Will Arnett was much better off in a recurring character role like he had on 30 Rock then being a main star of a show IMO.
