When I first saw the Pilot episode and the episode after, I didn't think it was all that great. It made me laugh, but I felt that the acting was forced and that Kirstie Alley was especially stiff, but was overacting at the same time. But I have continued to watch it, because it still made me laugh, and it's gotten much better. The chemistry between the actors is more apparent and Kirstie seems to be getting more comfortable, so I think it will be a good show for TV Land.
I think what people forget about TV Shows nowadays, is that when a show first starts out...particularly a sitcom...it's most likely going to be not so great the first half of the first season. It needs to find it's groove. Because we now live in the world of Netflix and season DVDs and reruns on TV, we often watch old shows, knowing how much of a hit they were. So, we expect new shows to be like that as well...especially shows with sitcom veterans such as Kirstie, Rhea, and Richard from this show..same goes for Sean Hayes in NBC's "Sean Saves the World" & Michael J. Fox on "The Michael J. Fox Show"....because they're both sitcom veterans, we expect them to just jump right in and be great. But they're still new shows. Shows such as Seinfeld, Friends, The Office, and Cheers got horrible reviews in the first season...but now they're timeless classics. So keep that in mind when watching Kirstie...it's not "Cheers" or "Seinfeld"...it's a new show with new characters. Give it time to find it's groove.
