Yeah, it's not a bad show, a good midseason way to waste some time.

I like all of the main characters, hot ladies and good geeky dudes is a good mix.

The last episode, about the sexual harassment being a "disease" like alcoholism was the best one of the new season so far.

I think it's even better than Modern Family, and is giving 30 Rock a good run for my favorite comedy on TV. Too bad ABC only thinks it's worth broadcasting during off-hours and will probably be canceled. I see Entertainment Weekly is already starting a "save the show" campaign. I hope it succeeds, though they almost never do.


We DVR this and have seen all of this season's shows, but I think it's slowly getting worse. There are a few good to great moments in each show, but I'm find it more hackneyed as it goes along and not nearly "wrong" enough. Though, as Hertz said, the sexual harassment show was pretty good. I'll still watch, but won't be all that sad to see it go.

Hmmm, I actually thought it was finding it's rhythm, getting a little bit better.

Happened upon this show last night, had never actually watched it, very funny. Sort of a Scrubs-ish vibe mixed with AD. I might have to give this one another shot.

Don't get used to it. ABC is burning off episodes as fast as they can. It's as good as gone.

IMS is right. It deserves better, but the way ABC is running through it I think we're just going to have to be happy with the 34 or so episodes they'll crank out before they're yanked. NBC should grab it. Lord knows they're desperate for content.
