Caught the pilot last night. So far its not bad. It doesn't blow me away like I thought it would, but it was enjoyable enough for me to give it a half season tryout with the option to get into the rotation. I will say the main female lead in the show is very very neat.

Watched it, loved it, will watch it again. The main sidekick, Sock, might be my favorite part of the show right now.

Did anybody else get a Ghostbusters feel from the last several minutes of the episode?

I watched the original pilot (with a different girl), so I'm not sure how much it changed, but I loved it. Sock pretty much killed me every time he was on screen, with his use of the leaf blower being the highlight of the episode.

Loved it.

The premise is creative and the dialogue and humor were really sharp. Agreed on the leaf blower spot being the highlight of the show (easily).

I thought I was going to hate it after five seconds cause it seemed to me that Sock was nothing more than a really annoying Jack Black clone. But by the end he became the star of the show. He became more of a Nick Frost clone (if you're gonna be a clone of somebody, you can't do much better).

I don't care who was originally cast as Andi - no one can compete with Missy Peregrym.

My one complaint (and it surprise me that I'm saying it) is Ray Wise. When I saw he was cast as the Devil, I thought it was good casting. I really enjoyed his "possibly shady VP with ambiguous motives" on 24. But his Satan fell really, really flat with me. I dunno - when the Devil speaks, he's supposed to carry some weight...there's supposed to be a certain inflection in his voice, especially when he talks to you as the slick, debonair businessman. Ray Wise didn't have that. And he wasn't threatening in the least when he was supposed to be. Maybe it was Kevin Smith's fault (BLASPHEMY!).

Wikipedia says she was originally played by Nikki Reed of Thirteen. I really liked Missy on Heroes, but Nikki was perfectly fine, and in my humble opinion was hotter than Missy.

I totally missed that it had Smith's fingerprints. No wonder I liked it so much.

I saw both versions of the show and nothing changed except for the girl and maybe one of her lines. Personally I think Missy is hotter but Nikki was a better actor at least for this one episode.
