A friend suggested it. Not bad at all, but being set in Pittsburgh might help, since it's local to me.

Pretty entertaining through the 4th episode, which is where we are at now.

I apologize now...

It is well made, and I sort of liked it. It is a variant of the evening family soap opera that NBC likes to have on its schedule.

The characters all have too many problems, and like to whine about them too much for me to really enjoy it unreservedly. Too much angst.

But, Milana Vayntrub (Lily from the AT&T ads) has a small part later in the season, and she is delightful.

I was urged to watch this so I took advantage of our cable's on-demand feature during the tv dead zone between Thanksgiving and Christmas. Most surely a soap opera, a little too pat, obvious and manipulative but oddly addictive in its way. So, yeah, pretty well done and I'm sure I could have done worse with my time.

Very smart writing.

Avoid spoilers, it makes the fall finale that much more entertaining....I never saw it coming.

I was hooked from the first episode.
I've got a thing for Mandy Moore so it was a no-brainer.
Plus, Pittsburgh is still my spiritual center and I love anything from the homeland. It makes me homesick.

I thought they have done a very good job of dealing with Kate's struggle with her weight. A lot of it rings true.

I was hooked after a few episodes. I think it's a good show and well written. I am looking forward to season 2 starting soon. Also, I agree with Ronin about the season finale for season 1.

I like it also. I think the characters are intense in their own way. They have all issues and are dealing with them in their own way.

This week's episode "Memphis" was the best in a surprisingly good series. "Memphis" was amazing in its coherency from start to finish, tying one thing to another over and over. I can't say there were any surprises, some was predictable but this was sheer poetry. One of the best episodes in any series ever IMO, it really had me going.
