I guess Michael Strahan can act - well, "sitcom" act - but it doesn't matter because this show was AWWWWWWWWWWWWFUL.
Surely, after the tremendous assemblage of talent was brought together, it must have been discovered that there was no money left for writing.
I thought the same thing when this show was announced.
Then I read that the great Carl Weathers was on it, so I dvr'd it.
I anticipate a cod-liver oil type response to watching this, but I watched Team Package on Thunder in 2000, so I think I can take it (at least the opener).

Ladies and gentlemen, the following public service message is brought to you by your friends from D-Generation X, who would like to remind each and every one of you that if you're not down with that, we've got two words for you... The FOX executive who thought that this would be a good lead-in for Dollhouse should be shot, smothered, shot again, then have their body carved up into enough pieces for one to be buried in each of the lower 48.
smark/net attack Advisory System Status is: Elevated (Holds; June 18, 2006) While the switch from Cena to RVD should alleviate some complaints, the inevitability of the belt's return to Cena (note where Summerslam is this year) and the poor initial showing by the new ECW are enough to keep the indicator where it is for now. The pieces are in place, though, especially on RAW, for improvements to be made to the IWC's psyche in the near future.
Originally posted by piemanI watched the first 30 minutes of this and it was brutal. Just awful.
I did the same thing last night. I turned it off once, then bit the bullet and finished the first episode. Just painful. Carl Weathers is the reason I even thought I'd give this a shot, but this made me cringe.

Dick Butkus on Hang Time refutes this assertion.

The phone thing in the comics is played out for awhile, but they did the right thing by having hopefully just doing it once for this episode and be done with it. It is amazing how they are hitting certain beats with the comics in almost better ways.
