    "Underbelly" has got some good, (no - I won't say "belly") laughs, but you've got to wonder what happens if the show's a success.

    It's different, it's droll, it's quirky, it's funny.

    "Underbelly" does indeed aim narrow, likely appealing only to those who are pregnant or have recent memories of it.
  4. It's another one of those dismissable, disposable, oh-so-slight comedies.

    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.

    [It] recycles all the comedy cliches of pregnancy.
  7. Revolting.... Watch and you’ll lose your appetite for life.

    This is the best new show I've seen in a very long time. Great cast, great writing....it's smart and hip and what sitcoms should be like. I hope ABC gives it a chance after screwing around with its scheduling for so long!! Expand

    I myself just found out that I'm expecting and it's just eerily funny that everything they have discussed on the show, is EXACTLY what I've been going through with my hubby...uncanny...it brings some much needed humor & perspective to the entire prospect of impending parenthood that's for sure...I think if you haven't gone experienced it yet...some folks won't get it...but I like the quick writing & the cast is good...let's give it a fighting chance folks!

    This less than mediocre sitcom has a very narrow target audience; very likely, the show even insults the target audience with one dimensional characters and boring script. It's not terrible, but I definitely won't be watching it again. Expand
