Nice to see something that's not about teenagers and twentysomethings
and doesn't treat the thirty-and-fortysomethings like they're elderly. We find it funny and enjoyable and don't understand the highly negative ratings this is getting. I could do with less of Emma personally, but there's a lot of funny stuff and as has been mentioned, the cast are great.
As for the people who say it's worthless because it "doesn't compare" the UK version, well... haven't seen the original, might or might not ever see it, but definitely don't care how this compares to what inspired it. Same with The Office. Each succeeds or fails on its own merits.
Sad to hear Free Agents on the bubble, especially since the deplorable Whitney seems to have been picked up.
I give this a 7, which means we'll keep watching every week, and expect it to improve with time, if it's allowed to prosper.
