I loved the original tv version and really, really wanted to like this one since I really, really like Matthew Perry. But I thought the writing was terrible, the characters didn't seem natural as if they were interacting in real-life situations, they seemed to me just like what they are, actors waiting for their turn to say their next lines. Everyone seemed so stiff, but hopefully it was nervousness or that they haven't found their groove yet, so I will watch another week or 2.
Oh--and that laugh track. I don't know why, but it was so noticeable. A laugh track should be unobtrusive and add to the humor, but this laugh track was just to noticeable to the point of annoyance. Maybe it was because the show didn't engage me that the laugh track stood out so much, but again, I'll try another episode or 2 only because I really like Matthew Perry. He is so much better than this show----at least this show so far.… Full Review »

Season 7 was easily one of the show's best as far as a straight up cop show - but the cake and ice cream finale was so very very dull and disappointing. I'll very quickly forget the ending but will fondly remember the overall entertaining show. Thanks Bruno. Given the strength of the final season's cop plots, a spinoff minus Jane and Lisbon would be worth a look.… Full Review »
I admit. I was closed minded as soon as I saw the trailers for this show. It's The Odd Couple though and I just had to peek. That said, I wasI admit. I was closed minded as soon as I saw the trailers for this show. It's The Odd Couple though and I just had to peek. That said, I was pleasantly surprised at how much I didn't hate most of the show and I credit Thomas Lennon's Felix. I had to admire how deftly he plays the role as more fastidious rather than effeminate.
Matthew Perry - what can I say. Ugh. He is easily worst casting choice for the role of a gruff, hard living yet lovable Oscar. He is simply too one dimensional comedically and it showed every time he opened his mouth. There is absolutely ZERO chemistry between him and any other character.
Friends worked mainly because of the great writing. It made some mostly mediocre actors look fantastic and sadly, Perry's weak career since has proven that time and time again. Here, he is simply an out of place Chandler with lame dialogue.
The supporting cast of characters were pretty limp overall but I give Yvette Nicole Brown a B- and would happily see her stick around. That said, some serious retooling is necessary overall for this show. Start with the obnoxious laugh track.
Again, there was more not to like than the opposite here however I did mildly enjoy the show IN SPITE of Perry and that is only due to Thomas Lennon and Yvette Nicole Brown.
Not enough to keep it in my weekly rotation though.… Full Review »
Since the start of Vikings i thought that it would be an awesome show of keep seeing... Now at the third season I know that i was right! OnlySince the start of Vikings i thought that it would be an awesome show of keep seeing... Now at the third season I know that i was right! Only the first episode made me want to see more and more! With a lot of good actors and an amazing scenery I would bet everything I have that this is going to be an huge success
And I just don't give one 10 now... Because I want more… Full Review »
