    It’s a more-than-solid cast, which is half the battle.
  2. 50
    The show just kind of rolls along, never quite provoking you to change the channel but never providing any great reason to pay attention either.
  3. 50
    "Underbelly" does indeed aim narrow, likely appealing only to those who are pregnant or have recent memories of it.

    The cast has an ordinariness that's a little too believable. [16 Apr 2007, p.43]
  5. 50
    The only thing missing is fresh, smart, unpredictable humor.
  6. "Notes" feel[s] like a number of other sitcoms about couples who hail from Mars and Venus, respectively, and adds little to the discussion beyond stretch marks.

    Occasionally sharp as an epidural needle, often dumb as a pea pod, sometimes half decent.
  8. There's nothing particularly awful... But there's nothing particularly right about it either, and laughs are spotty at best.

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 »

    I love this show, it's hilarious! Everything said about pregnancy is true and I can relate totally!

    Absolute trash.
