Episode discussion for: 01x01 | Pilot (Oct 18, 2011)

Dan Fogler seems to be trying very hard to be Tyler Labine, and is failing badly.

I kept waiting for Mather Zickel to break into his best Tim Allen imitation and start grunting.

This show needs a lot of work, but I doubt ABC will invest much into it.

Trailer makes me think its a big bunch of "men acting dopey / under the thumb of their ladies, while the women look on, shake their heads and give a "typical men" look to each other" - so no thanq very much.

plus there will be a whole load of women on man thumping (cos that's ok), and whenever they show a man vs woman 'battle' (be it in the home or in the workplace) the woman will come out on top cos that's showing Girl Power in a Man's World; never will the man 'win' cos that's just plain sexist tripe and playing into the discrimination against women thing from yee olden days.

Never mind, I taped something else. Doesn't sound good anyway.

I actually thought parts of this was funny, but here we are in Feb and I'm just realizing it was canceled and haven't seen it in a really long time. Guess it didn't make an impression after all.
