I didn’t like this pilot at all. I was relieved to find I wasn’t the only one. I thought I was missing something obvious. The funny parts weren’t that funny, the “real life” parts didn’t feel that real, and I didn’t like most of the characters enough to care to keep watching more episodes. After so many critics raved about it, I was thoroughly underwhelmed. I don’t want to jump on the backlash bandwagon, but I gotta be honest. I was getting pretty tired of all the over-the-top praise.
