    Curious to see who that third lead actor ends up being.

    Interested to see how Mike Schur does with something that isn't workplace-based, considering his biggest credits are The Office, Parks and Rec, and Brooklyn Nine-Nine.

    I like the leads and the concept is fun, but it looks like a show that is too high concept to hit a broad demo.

    Not 100% sold on it but will tune in because of Shur and the cast.

    Will be great to have something to watch on Thursdays - well until November 10th when Thursday Night Football switches to NBC after that week.

    Seeing British Tv presenter Jameela Jamil acting is so weird

    I guess this is going to have a panel at SDCC, which kind of surprised me, but I guess it makes sense, considering this doesn't look like a standard sitcom.

    I normally don't watch stuff on Monday at 10 pm, but I'd like to see Kristen Bell on screen again now that House of Lies has ended, so may check it out of curiosity.

    It's only the first 2 episodes that are on tonight after The Voice. After tonight it'll move to its regular time slot on Thursday.

    That was a rather enjoyable pilot. It's so good to see Kristen back on the small screen .

    This is kind of like Samantha Who? meets the afterlife.

    This is so much weirder than I thought it would be and I'm so glad.

    I do like that, will give it a couple more episodes. Wasn't heavy on laughs, wait and see if they find their voice. None of the characters are really likeable and people can be awful and still be likeable but these characters aren't.

    Ha, my thoughts exactly.

    I also suspect Tahani is another "mistake." It didn't wow me, but I'm interested enough to see where it's going.

    I love Kristen Bell and it's certainly a quirky show if not laugh out loud funny, I struggle to see it surviving a full season though with the concept.

    Kristen Bell is a treasure, and I loved the first two episodes. I too wasn't expecting it to be as quirky as it is, but after finding out who the creator is, it makes sense.

    Enjoying it so far. I kinda started to expect that twist after Bell's character started going after Tahani so hard :oldrazz:.
