I am trying to watch but am afraid it's not holding my undivided attention. The Pie Hole is hysterical, I love that. Don't know if this show will make it for a season. But hey, I'm trying!!

It's a good show, but I couldn't sit and follow it for more than 20 minutes. It started to annoy me and I felt fidgety. Mostly, I felt like it was designed to be a movie, and can't imagine watching it week in and week out. Interesting concept, I'm just not sure it works in this medium.

I kept having that feeling as well...

It was.... weird. I dunno; I didn't dislike it but I wasn't crazy about it either. It seemed a little too quirky for it's own good if you ask me...

I'll watch a few more episodes though, next week looks like it could have more humor at least...

Ditto. I had the same problem. I watched the first half and then flipped the channel. It does feel like more movie-esque material.. but I enjoyed it. It reminded me a bit of Dead Like Me with the quirky humour and whatnot.

I'm curious to see where they'll take this

good for you


the production values are outstanding


so much care and thought has been put into this

yes, the look and feel is like a movie

that is a very high standard for TV

if you are watching this on an Ipod or small comp screen

than you are missing the reason this was created

there is enough stuff geared towards youtube attention spans

I look forward to more viewings

Oh, I loved it. One of the most well produced shows I've ever laid eyes on, for starters, and, I love the concept and embrace a much needed dose of the quirk on network TV. I'm very much in.

I couldn't decide 100% if I liked it. I thought it was interesting, and it kept me watching. Maybe the real thing that kept me interested was Jim Dale's voiceovers....he's the guy who does Harry Potter audiobooks & dvds. His voice just kept me glued.

My wife liked it a lot, so it'll probably make its way into our rotation.....even though we keep trying to whittle down our rotation...

I enjoyed this again last night...have to say this is the only show on the new fall schedule that had me back again 2 weeks in a row...and I will be watching again next week too! I am reminded a bit of Edward Scissorhands or Willie Wonka (Johnny Depp's) while watching..mybe it is the narrator?

Halloween episode is on right now. so far.

Although you could make a case that this show has a Halloween mood every episode.

Love the quirkiness and the high-quality sets, costumes, and color photography. Broadcast TV needs more quirky shows -- and more shows with such wonderful production values.
