I thought it was funny as a doctor in the movie knocked up... That's what I thought this is going to be like. About the first episode for $2 it was 21 minutes long and I turned it off after 4 minutes. it had a few quips and wasn't terrible.... I just hate overdramatized sitcoms the only person that can get away with overextended snappy dialogue is Aaron Sorkin and I couldn't even really stand the newsroom

Sorry, but this one of the worst shows I have ever seen. It is difficult to understand how it got on the air. Look for it to be pulled from the air before it airs 6 episodes.
