Anyone else watching this bizarre resurrection of a show that didn't even make it a full season eleven years ago?
I don't know if I like Bobby Cannavale in the titular (teehee) role as much as Jeremy Piven, but the writing is still mostly there. I loved the original show and felt it wasn't given its due way back then. It was Rob Thomas' involvement back then that would eventually lead me to tune into the first episode of Veronica Mars and he's still working on this one. Also, Sarah Paulson is adorable. And the girl who was briefly on Las Vegas.
I'll definitely keep tuning in, though it helps that it's on a night (Tuesday) with fuck-all else I watch.
I caught the first episode and was moderately impressed - the second is currently sitting on my recorder machine because I am too damn old to stay up until 10:00 on a regular basis and still show up functional at work the next day. It seems like it'll basically be a different romantic comedy every week, which means that I don't think I can admit to enjoying it without an agent from the Man Emporium down the street coming to revoke my balls, but it's really not bad. It's kind of fluffy and forgettable, but that's not always a bad thing. I have not deleted it from my season pass queue.
I remember when a local channel here brought the series after it was already been given the boot. Some entertainment magazine criticized them for being the cheapest shows they can find because of that and they claimed that even through the show was canceled it was good show and they believe in it.
Turns out that local channel's people knew something about drama.
I"ll probably see if it's still a nice show.
I saw this on the TV listing and was wondering what it was. I knew it couldn't be the original and figured it was some completely different series. If it's a recreation of the old I'll probably give it a chance. I saw a few episodes of the original and liked it before it promptly disappeared. I think Piven might have made it for me though, I'll have to see how Cannavale does.
Has the blonde from studio 60, but she isn't hot enough to get me to watch.
It just makes me remember how much Jeremy Piven was awesome in the old version, and how much Paula Marshall is hotter than Sarah Paulson.
