Yeah Chloe seems to be a true psycho... I don't really know how she met James Van Der Beek and became good friends...

She looked really tall in this episode..

Go to Ken H's link.

Thanks for that. Now that I've seen it, unlike others here, I found the 2nd episode to be even better than the pilot. "I made $4 today." The show really belongs on cable, free of network restrictions. As long as they resist the urge to soften things, I hope it continues on.

I'm still liking it. Loved the opening sequence with the plant, leading to the goldfish, leading to the insulin and then apartment for rent. There is enough here to work. The characters haven't been fleshed out yet but I'm hooked for a while at least.

Jerry. Just remember. Its not a lie . . . if you believe it. GC

i thought the previous episodes were okay but didn't like tonight's episode. it felt incredibly contrived. the idea of the blonde inexplicably deciding to take care of the kid on top of all the other stuff, and then complaining about it, just made her very irritating in a bad way. like the horror movie victim that makes the stupid decisions, you don't feel for them when they die. and in this example she'd complain about being killed :P
hope that makes sense.

She's just eager to please...to a fault. Yeah, it was a bit over-the-top but that sort of absurdity works for this show. Wasn't quite as funny as last week but Ritter continues to impress with her rat-a-tat Hepburn/Russell delivery. It's the only network half-hour sitcom that I'll watch.

I liked this week's episode as well. I enjoyed watching Dawson trying to imitate that girl's mannerisms

Wasn't the foster kid the same girl that played the daughter in Moneyball? She looked real familiar to me.

"that girl' of course being the superb Kiernan Shipka of Mad Men.

She's in lots of stuff her parents won't let her watch without careful censoring

Hands down the funniest episode yet. Good, fast-paced script, excellent comic timing from all concerned, particularly Van Der Beek, who handily stole all the scenes he was in (the Guy Ritchie clips were particularly riotous), and the obligatory scenes reinforcing the strange community the co-stars have all made for a top-flight entry in new-style sitcom.

I sure hope this series returns.

He was the captain in the SF series ANDROMEDA for some years. Followed by numerous Direct-to-video movies.

This show is great. I really like VDB. Almost hate to admit, but I have been working my way through Dawson's Creek while doing the treadmill at the gym and am currently up to season 5. For some reason Dawson is one of the shows that makes that normally boring time go by the fastest.

I also like the guests who are supposedly playing themselves. Of course, the guest star I would love to see is Joshua Jackson - Dawson and Pacey back together would be an absolute hoot!

Just hilarious! Each week Chloe takes the definitions of sociopath and amoral to greater heights. This week's outrage with Kevin Sorbo and the alleged Multiple Sclerosis benefit was appalling and hysterical at the same time. As a fan of Guy Ritichie's "criminal underbelly of London" films (especially Rock N Rolla and Snatch) I almost fell off the couch laughing when Van Der Beek did that completely indecipherable bit of dialogue. It was perfect!

Actually, the SHOWTIME series "Shameless" has that honor...Chloe doesn't even come close. But for a netwrok series, she does take the prize.

True that. Everyone on Shameless is certifiable And formally sweet little Emmy Rossum is something else.

Another very funny episode. It gave more to various supporting characters, and its combination of darkness and warmth continues to make for a unique viewing experience. For me, anyway.

Really enjoyed that last episode. Especially meatballs, Robin's toast and the bathroom cam. The cast seems really up for anything no matter how self humiliating it is.

Anyone have any idea what Cloe was saying that got censored to the extent that her mouth was "fuzzed out" so that we couldn't even read her lips????
(This show should be on a cable channel instead of network.)

This show has been kind of hit or miss with me but I really enjoyed this week's episode. The fetish website was hilarious! Also enjoyed Dawson's billboard gag.

"Put your cheeks in a Beek!" LOL!

Krysten Ritter seems to get hotter each week. I'm not into pale women usually but she looks really cute and has some great stems!

The whole "blipping" and digitally obscuring lips is actually a comic choice in many cases and not just censorship. The act of censoring as humor.

Well, if the ABC website can be trusted, Don't trust the B____ is returning next season on Tuesdays at 9:30.

I, for one, am heartily pleased.

Oh, I've had a crush on Ms. Ritter for some time...even before her turn in BREAKING BAD. Probably going back to LAST INT'L PLAYBOY, and even in 27 DRESSES and WHAT HAPPENS IN VEGAS, up to the recent KILLING BONO. She's always terrific and I'm glad to see her getting her due in a higher profile gig..

Funny, I loved Ritter in Breaking Bad and She's Out of my League. I am not fan of her bangs. For whatever reason, I cannot stand her bangs. I have never seen her without them. My only guess is she has some outrageously huge forehead she is hiding or something.

The nice thing is in all the interviews I have seen of these girls, neither one is a dingbat. Both seem to have a good head on their shoulder.
