This show premiered tonight, and I’m really liking it. It’s focused on Matthew Perry (who is funny as heck), but also has Allison Janney (who I just love), Andrea Anders (from Better Off Ted) and others. The show is also executive produced by Thomas Schlamme (who is the West Wing connection with Janney and Perry) who also directed the first episode.
I don’t understand how you saw it tonight. I looked at my TiVo guide info and it says the pilot is on Wednesday.
Sounds good. I love the principal actors. Andrea Anders has the worst luck though. She seems to go from one good sitcom (and yes, I liked Joey, so sue me) to the next, and it always fails to get the ratings.
I liked it, but I’m an unashamed Matthew Perry fan. I like the character he’s playing here, too. He’s got Chandler’s tendency to hide behind humor, but the character’s personality otherwise aren’t particularly Chandleresque. And I’ve always liked the way Matthew Perry says his lines, his weird verbal patterns.
(It’s funny how hard it is for people to break away from their biggest roles. I don’t think Jules on Cougar Town is much like Monica, but I can still see a lot of Monica in her. And Matt LeBlanc as Matt LeBlanc on Episodes has a lot of Joey-qualities. Which I guess means your good TV actors are going to be the ones who put a lot of themselves into their roles.)
Five bucks says he whines that it’s not realistic!
