I downloaded this last week, wasn't all that impressed with the first episode. Very... odd. :? I might keep downloading using my off peak downloads, but its an odd one.

Anyone else watch?

Yeah...haven't watched it, but it's already got a strike against it in my books for taking over Arrested's spot! :(

Call me unfair, but I more or less assume most of these sitcom things are pretty awful unless I'm proven otherwise. I'm certainly not going out of my way to catch it, that's for sure. :|

I'm hearing good things about ABC's Sons and Daughters though... :eh:

Its like a bastardised version of AD. A lot of it is apparently unscripted improv which is obvious, but it just wasn't all that funny. :?

I've heard good things about Sons and Daughters as well. The creator was on Conan the other night; he's a bit of an odd ball! :? :)

I watched episode 2 of this, and its slightly better now. The parents are oddballs, but all the characters are quite quirky.

Still not convinced, aliasfanjay. :wink:

I think I'd rather download new King of the Hill, which only just now have I realised there are new episodes of that I haven't seen yet. :)

Third episode down. Its not too bad. Its a bit more hit and miss than I would like, but I'm going to stick with it. See where it goes... the parents slay me! :P
