At around 19 minutes, when Sam goes to remove the "land Chrysler account" index card from his dream board, the other index cards are legible. They read: "Tokyo 2020", "lunch with Billy Crystal", "improv laser-tag technology", "major league at bat", "ice bucket challenge", "ride motorcycle", "catch boomerang", "get Tim to try weed", and "black belt".

A New Comedy Central Gem
13 February 2017 | by patrickbobilinSee all my reviews

This tightly written and tightly edited pilot burns gives more bang for its 23-minutes than any other Comedy Central comedy in recent memory. The lead characters of Sam and Tim are fun to watch but the secondary characters introduced throughout the episode give hint to a wider and exciting world for the leads to play in. Jason Sudeikis guest stars as a fairly straightforward executive, an easy role given past characters he's played. Shawntay Dalon only appears for the last two minutes of the episode but there's a lot to look forward to both in her marriage to Tim and a nasty rivalry with their next door neighbor, her brother and Tim's best friend Sam. While the set up for the show (Tim's inherited an ad business from his aging father, Sam is his best friend) is a bit of a thin premise, describing post-industrial Detroit is something American audiences have been missing in their sitcom experience of the world.
