'Don't Trust The B---- In Apartment 23' - on ABC HD - Page 3

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.

...and everything in the vicinity of the shoulders is not too shabby as well

I thought all of the episodes were funny. 7 is such an odd number though. Too short! Any news on it coming back?

It was but this week's show was back on the beam with some very funny moments. Besides, in her own quirky way, Kristen Ritter looks smashing.

What was it that Schmidt said in the New Girl? Something like beautiful women can say/do whatever they want.

What about "Gilmore Girls" and "'Til Death"?

Anyone catch the Thanksgiving show? This show is surprising me on how great they are doing with the original premise.

We have it on the DVR but haven't watched it yet.

For me, this Thanksgiving episode fell absolutely flat. I don't think a smile crossed my face once let alone the laughing out loud the previous episodes have caused. I think it was just all the main characters were acting in extremely mean-spirited ways with nothing but jokes about people in wheelchairs and people in homeless shelters. Usually the humor is directed more at themselves or others who are deserving, but this was just sad and pathetic.

I'm with DuaneAA on "It's a Miracle…"  Accidentally deleted it unwatched from the DVR, couldn't find it on On Demand, watched it at the computer from abc.com: wouldn't have bothered if I'd known it was, well, as DuaneAA already described.

The only thing I gained from watching it is knowing that I wouldn't have missed an enjoyable episode.

When even June acts like a jerk, and Chloe and James are worse than usual, it's just too much.

I remember Jennifer Grey as Jennifer Grey on "It's, Like, You Know…" in a reasonably benign fictionalization of herself, with the running gag that she couldn't get work any more because after her rhinoplasty nobody believed she was Jennifer Grey.  In contrast, now we have Matt LeBlanc on "Episodes" and James Van Der Beek on DTtBiA23 portraying themselves as complete buttholes.

We watched it last night.. kind of agree with Duane also. For me the funniest part was the argument at the street near the end. That was really pretty funny.
We did think that LAST weeks show (Sexiest Man) was very funny however, but no one ever commented about it here on the forum . . .

I guess its just me then that really likes this show. They aren't backing away from the intense selfishness of the characters. JVB's attitude in volunteering a the "most exclusive" soup kitchen. Chloe's response to June about Black Friday. Chloe's annual phone call tradition. I just find the show filled with great nuggets and I love its consistency such as JVB's sitting at the table eating with the boy talking to him.It is pretty dark humor.

You are definitely not the only one. I usually record the show and then catch up. The last two shows have been very funny. The comic timing of all of the principal actors is classic and Ritter is just amazing.

Nope, I really like this show too. I agree that they haven't tried to "warm up" the characters. This weeks thanksgiving episode was hilarious. The JVB storyline was actually the first time I've thought he was funny in the show. I enjoyed how they dealt with celebrities doing charity work just for the photo op.

Ratings are horrible though...

Don't want to imply that I dislike the show; I like it and will keep watching it.  But this episode was an exception for me.

Same here.. we still like it, just doesn't seem to be as funny as last season.

I'm a big fan. Bring on raging bad taste, I say. It's true that the show is inconsistent but there's always some chuckles. Few females in the history of film have been so adept at sustained horror in their expressions as is Dreama Walker, and Ray Ford's Luther has really found his character and rhythm (the blink-and-you-miss-it scene of him playing with the devil tail in the Halloween show was hysterical).

I do miss Liza Lapira; I guess she wants a sitcom in which she has more to do.

Maybe if ABC dumps it some of the cable channels will pick it up. This could be like Arrested Development: it doesn't really find its audience until it's gone.

Did we watch the same episode? The jokes were about people that don't really care about those in a shelter, and jerks that would make fun of someone in a wheelchair. Just because there was a wheelchair and a joke onscreen at the same time doesn't mean it was making fun of the handicapped. Both James and June got what they deserved for being inappropriate to people with such problems. I thought it was impressive the way they wrote an episode that allowed the show to have its standard, incredibly irreverent humor, but NOT cross any lines about the real problems.

Loved it, if you couldn't tell.
post #83 of 109
I guess we must have seen different episodes. All I can say is the previous 'Man of the Year' episode was one of the funniest I have ever seen. But I never smiled, let alone laughed during the Thanksgiving episode.

This is becoming one of my favorite shows to watch. It doesn't disappoint with its debauchery.

Yep.

Looks like it's "Certain to be canceled"

Pity as I really LIKE this show.

Not as much as 2 Broke Girls though.
post #87 of 109
Same here - this is one of the few comedies my wife and I regularly watch, so if it's cancelled that will be disappointing. I don't rate it as "exceptionally great" comedy, but it's different and original (enough), specially with the fun James VdB has with his character.

So, are they just running them out of order now? That's a bad sign. I'm OTA with TiVo and there was an episode Sunday and another Tuesday. Maybe TiVo missed one, but the info claimed those were #8 and 10. But 10 was clearly earlier in the show's timeline than 8. And what happened to 9?

Typical crap from networks. Did like the cougar bar.

I have the same two episodes recorded on my TiVo. I noticed also that there are episodes scheduled for Sunday night and Tuesday night next week too...
Someone mentioned a few weeks ago that the show has been cancelled, so maybe ABC is just trying to get them all aired and wash their hands of it . . . frown.gif
