I watched the few eps on On Demand the other day...and I really changed my opinion on it. It's pretty damned funny. Joel McHale is actually the weakest link, I think.
I watched the pilot of Parenthood as well...I'm amazed it's not an Aaron Sorkin show. It's pretty good.
I don't know how someone could have disliked the first episode. You should be deprived of oxygen for the next 4 hours.
Honestly, I thought it tried too hard. I was really excited for it and it just ended up kind of grating. Probably because it reminded me a lot of sitting with my one group of friends who really can only carry on conversations using pop culture references and quotes. It was overbearing the first episode.
Now, not so much. Sure there are some pop culture references here and there, but it's a little more toned down. I dunno, I could be imagining that, but that's what it seems like.
