I couldn't find a thread for this show so here goes.

Wednesdays on ABC at 8:30/7:30 PM.

I watched the series premiere on 9/26 and think it has potential.

Enough laughs to get me to watch again.

I'll keep watching for now, but if it gets canceled as soon as the detractors predict, I won't miss it.  Jami Gertz and Simon Templeman are points in its favor.

Hmm... Templeman is amrried to Rosalind Chao of "Don't Trust the B____ in Apartment 23," another ABC sitcom.

My wife liked it. To me, it was essentially an extension of the Coneheads which doesn't get you very far. I'll possibly give it one or two more times to get engaging.

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

One and done. For some reason I find Lenny Venito, the human male lead an unpleasant experience.The aliens are cute, but profoundly stupid, if they think their outdoor activities emulate actual human behavior. IOW, are they not trying to blend in?

Perhaps not, because none of them have exited the boundaries of Hidden Hills so far since landing.  Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
That is, until tomorrow night's episode.

This show has been much better than I thought it would be. My wife summed it up when said she kept waiting for it to suck, but it just doesn't. We laugh every episode.
