It's on hulu. It's not bad. I struggle a bit with the lead actor. Fun, but a bit full of himself. Pretty girl. I'll watch it again.

I love him when I happen to catch the soup but I'm not sure how well his humor will translate to a sitcom.

Three episodes in, and I'm hooked.

I've been a big fan of Chevy Chase's slapstick style of humor since I was a kid, and mix that with the rest of the cast, and I'm ing. This last episode was the best, one yet.

I'm a fan. Not really LOL funny but definitely worth watching. I think a lot of the humor is understated and that might hurt its overall numbers.

The wife and I missed them when they aired but caught up quickly on Hulu. We're eagerly anticipating more of this show; it's hilarious.

This disappoints me. Is it doing so poorly in the ratings that it needs to bring in Jack? It was a mistake when HIMYM brought in Brittney Spears. It was a mistake for Big Bang to bring in Rosanne's sister to play Sheldon's mom (and definitely to advertise that as "a very special guest star".

Neither of those shows needed a guest star. Neither does Community. So say I and all who hold with me.


I'm concerned that it might not be a "guest" spot. Plot descriptions list "a new addition" to the study group. The only thing worse than bringing him in for an episode would be adding him permanent-like.

He's done some decent cameo work, I think they could add him in for an episode (or two) with good results. If he's a permanent addition, I'll be very disappointed.

I wish they had gone farther with "Kickpuncher 2", I was looking forward to hearing a lot of gay jokes.
