Did anyone else watch this show?
It was absolutely awesome. Best new show I've seen in a long time.
I just hope Fox doesn't give up on it as quick as they did with Undeclared.

I didn't like it. The "here's a fantasy sequence of what (s)he's really thinking!" gag is played out for TV shows. It seems like a lazy writing tool to me, covering up either an inability to write funny dialogue in its place or a unwillingness to go for broke and have characters who do interesting things and deal with the results.

I like Andy Richter and I appreciate that the show seems to be going, on some level, for a "Being John Malkovich" kind of vibe for its office setting, but the fantasy thing has to go. I'll give it a few more shots, of course, since pilots often have a different tone than a series ends up with.

I taped it but haven't watched it yet. From what I read on the previews, I thought it was cool that he's a tech writer on the show, because I've never seen any occupation I've worked in mirrored on the boob toob.

I didn't like it either. It's like "Ally McBeal" sans anorexia or "Great Scott" without being totally awesome. "Hey, let's send up the whole idea of introducing the characters on the show by being really OBVIOUS about it, oh the irony!" I perked up when they started playing bongos and wrestling and writing letters to Amnesty International, but when THAT turned out to be another fantasy sequence I felt gypped. I'd much prefer more "Undeclared."

The only thing I enjoy more than doing the crossword puzzle is actually finishing it.

Everything he actually DID in that show made it funny. The fantasy sequences did get kind of old. I wish he had just put the damn trashcan on Byron's head and pounded, him, then walked away. I like the setting of the 'out of control' workplace rahter than the 'out of control' mind of Andy Richter. Though the puppies thing was kind of funny.

Well, I was pleasantly surprised with it myself. I went in expecting crap, but watched it anyways, because I watch TSS and 24.

It ended up being decent. Some good jokes, and enough to at least get me to not go back to the computer and waste a half hour there.

I still want Undeclared though.

The "suit of puppies" was absolutely hilarious.

The powerbomb through the living room table was gold,!

Q: If you could have interviewed Marvin Gaye, where would you have proposed to meet and what would you have asked him?

A: I would have met anywhere as long as it was before his father shot him. I would have asked him, "Hey, don't you think there's some chance that your father might shoot you? To death, I mean?"

Andy Richter Bores The Universe might be a more apt title for the show. I'll watch a few more times and see how it goes.

Prying open my third eye.

Here's a link to an updated time series of gas prices since 1918. It also breaks down where the gas prices go (taxes, marketing/manufacturing and crude oil cost).
