  1. It's another one of those dismissable, disposable, oh-so-slight comedies.
  2. Forget the epidural, you'll need laughing gas, stat.

    Clearly, "Notes" plans to explore the fear, joy and ridiculousness that parenthood inspires in so many of us, relying on the quirks of the characters to infuse this with sass and humor. But none of the characters seems up to the task.

    There's no sign of passion here; it's all awkward.

    All this obvious plot about baby showers, maternity peeing and big-belly clothing is unbearable.
  6. A lackluster show about a conflicted mother-to-be and her annoying and oblivious husband that mostly provides ammunition to those who argue that Hollywood is out of touch with the real world.

    Nearly everything feels stale in this sitcom.
  8. There’s nothing especially novel or insightful, let alone funny, about the show’s take on impending parenthood.
  9. 20
    [It] recycles all the comedy cliches of pregnancy.
  10. 10
    No cliché is unexplored, no supporting character is allowed to resemble an actual person.
  11. 10
    It is one of the worst sitcoms on the air.
  12. Revolting.... Watch and you’ll lose your appetite for life.

I found this show to be very funny and have it at number 18 in my TiVo lineup! That's out of 64 and just under Metalcocalypse. Full Review »
