Very good show, just need to give it a chance
16 August 2012 | by stateofthunderSee all my reviews

This is a very good and funny TV show, you just need to give it a chance. I think a lot of people just watched the pilot episode and came to conclusions based on that.

You'll need to watch at least 3-4 episodes before making a conclusion on it and I'm more than positive most people will like it and find it amusing like me once you do give it the chance.

I wasn't too much of a fan of the pilot either although it was alright to me, but all the other episodes have been very good.

I also like the fact that this show takes place in Pittsburgh which isn't too common in TV shows. Most shows either take place in Chicago, New York, Los Angeles, main stream cities but this show takes place in an overlooked city in Pittsburgh which gives it originality. I know that a lot of people have criticized this show for not being original but I think it has a decent amount of originality in it.

I really hope TBS renews this show for season 2.
