Laura San Giacomo,
Three 40-something best friends from Los Angeles are flying to Paris when their plane makes an emergency landing in Cleveland. Realizing that all the norms from Los Angeles don't apply anymore, they decide to celebrate a city that values real women and stay where they're still considered hot.
I just watched the pilot and I have to say I am not impressed.
Some of the jokes are good and get a laugh.
But the show has problems. A lot of the acting is bad. Over-exaggerated. Bad timing, bad delivery. It seems like they are trying too hard and going over the top.
The "Korean" mom has the worst accent ever. it is not remotely Korean. It sounds like she is attempting a generic Asian accent and it is hideous to listen to. Very forced.
Nonetheless, I can't help but get this strange, familiar feeling when I watch the show....like it is a faded copy of another famous bar I know...but what could it be? When Steve, the main character walks in the bar, everyone shouts his name...there is an older lady with a rep for sleeping around...a character in a public service uniform...an older, simple-minded man....a whiny female character. Even the set looks oddly family. It's on the tip of my tongue...but I just can't place it.
Oh well, I recorded both premiere episodes so I will watch the next one.
Cheers, B. B.
