I know, I'm a little surprised I made this choice myself. I enjoyed Donald Sutherland's hair, and....I guess I enjoyed "William" Baldwin. Kim summed up the show by calling it "Arrested Development...only not funny" but neglected to note it was also twice as long. Having never watched "Six Feet Under" I didn't care that Peter Krwhat'shisname was the leading man, but he did well enough with what he had. With all the "intrigue" surfacing, I tried to make a "Lyon's Den" comparison before Kim reminded me that I was the only person to actually watch THAT show, too. I'm not sure this one will make it for the long haul, but I will probably give it one more week, if only because I feel duly bound to watch ONE ABC show per season - well, one OTHER ABC show when "Lost" isn't on, I suppose. (See: "The Nine," "The Evidence," "LA Dragnet")
I didn't see this myself, but my wife made it a point to call me at work to tell me how much she enjoyed this show.
Yeah, it should, but we don't live in Shouldland! Ah, Shouldland, where clean-cut kids cruise Shouldland Boulevard, and the Shouldland High football team gets their optimistic asses kicked by their crosstown rival, Reality Check Tech.
This was one of the few (only?) new shows I was really interested in checking out. Like Kim, I too immediately compared it to Arrested Development, especially when the mom was consoling the daughter (don't really have the names down yet).
It was....okay. I mean, it wasn't bad. I'll probably check out the second episode, but that's as far as I'm committing right now. Other than Krause and Sutherland, the others kind of got lost in the shuffle. I thought the cell phone ringer thing was cute though.
A couple funny moments in this episode stood out to me. Loosely paraphrased: Ward: "It only gets harder from here. From this moment, every decision you make has consequences." Skye: "G7." Ward: *beat* "Hit." Hee.
