I don't know what's wrong with these other reviewers.

This is way better than "Bad Judge", which I really wanted to like.

The lead has great comic timing and the rest of the cast shoes promise.

Just the fact that the stand-up comic Maria Bamford is in the cast makes it worth watching.

I laughed a lot during the first episode, and there are signs that there will be some heart along with the laughs.

Good comedies are hard to come by - give it a chance.

I don't know why IMDb request ten lines of text for a review! It's just not necessary!
