In the Spirit of Reno 911, but funnier and more realistic
I had no idea who Eliza Coupe was, but when I saw "Oscar" from The Office and Jones from Reno 911 my expectations soared... and have been met.
This is the funniest new comedy in many a year and could have been titled The (Public Defenders) Office. Coupe is clearly and deservedly the star, and what a pleasure she is to watch. Her timing, delivery, gestures and facial expressions are reminiscent of the best comediennes from the past. But everyone else gels perfectly as well, though I'd like to see "Jonesee's roll expanded (I'll never forget his reaction to "Let's play 'Good cop, black cop'" in Reno 911).
I'm writing this as I'm watching the two episode season finale, and I feel they're the best yet. True human feelings and reactions have fleshed out the series beautifully, and this now has promise of becoming Friends 911!
