    Does anyone have that one program you despise but you just aren't sure why? For me, this is it. It was something unknown about this show that left a bitter taste in my mouth. The more people rave and ranted about it, the less I liked it. To this day, I still role my eyes when someone mentions this program. Truth be told, if I invested solid time in it, I'd probably rate it slightlyDoes anyone have that one program you despise but you just aren't sure why? For me, this is it.

    Boring!! A cloying, annoying self-consciously quirky show.

    Not very funny at all. It was like trying to quench one's thirst, by drinking a bucket of sand. Maybe, if I were a Kiwi, Aussie, or Brit, it might be funny.

    Quirky -- definitely. Funny -- rarely. The characters' deadpan delivery could be very effective iif their words contained anything ironic, or witty, or even simply shocking -- but mostly they are just staggeringly dull. The concept -- a day in the life of two marginal and utterly clueless musicians -- showed promise but so long as the writing and acting remains as weak as in the Quirky -- definitely.

    The charms of this series are subtle, but only grow over the course of the first few episodes.

    You should be there on Sunday night to see the premiere of something new and hilarious, and completely different.

    "Flight" is pretty much a snooze until the music starts, at which point the show kicks up into something quite weird and occasionally wonderful.
