Goofs

The outside shot of Oscar's apartment building looking up at the sky shows the Empire State Building pretty much right next to it, however, the window view from his apartment shows the Empire State Building off in the distance, with the Chrysler Building closer. See more »

A bit Funny, somehow organized, Fast scenario, and writing is thorough ,, but still needs so much work :P
20 February 2015 | by Aktham_TashtushSee all my reviews

I think the pilot started in a good way, Fast comedy is present which is really good comparing to the new comedies filled up with empty unnecessary pauses.

The casting is really great, Matthew Perry was and still hilarious , especially in his shows after friends like "Go On" and "Mr. Sunshine" which should'v been renewed but seemed like NBC had weird things going on,, hope Matthew Perry and CBS give the show a chance.

The other characters like the awkwardly frisky Thomas Lennon and even Wendell Pierce are playing a key roles , and more importantly the Comedy bits are distributed among the cast fairly they ordered 7 episodes so far so fingers crossed .

Although the pilot was good,, the second and third episode the rhythm of the comedy tuned down drastically,, i'll keep on watching but who knows when i'll get bored if it keeps up like this !! also yeah .. the laugh track might got a bit annoying ... hope they tune it down much.

Anyway,, the show deserves an 5 but i gave it 6 because i was bored :D and it's just the premiere so let's see how things are gonna get.
