Quite funny,but...um,about the title?
Poor,beleaguered SAm Briggs(Kyle Bornheimer,who seems to have been born with a 'I'm screwed!'face)is about to marry the lovely Melanie(Erinn HAyes),but has the dangerous task of trying to impress her parents(KUrtwood Smith and NAncy Lenehan,both great!)and seems to wear bad luck around his neck. EAch element of their impending nuptials becomes fraught with peril,all laying out traps for our intrepid hero.

THis comedy has worked so far(At this writing,about twelve episodes deep). THe timing and reactions of all involved work well enough(Or better yet,they stay out of the way of the natural humor to develop)that this show has a true charm and appeal to it. I'm probably mincing details here,but I still cannot help but feel like naming a show "Worst Week" suggests that this show's running plot is a singular or finite problem. Since the mere nature of a TV series is,usually,to continue indefinitely,the naming of a show set around a singular worst week seems to present a bit of a problem. Or maybe that's just me.

UNless there's been a revelation as to the time constraints of this show in a previous episode(or episodes)that I've not been cognizant of,I cannot help but feel like a show with the kind of genuinely funny quality and rich potential,the producers might want to change the title. Some suggestions: "Worst Weeks"? "Another BAd Week"? "ONe Bad DAy After Another"?

Again,just suggestions. Good show,though!
