Re: Mockingbird Lane - It didn't suck!

Eddie Izzard was as fabulous as you'd expect. Jerry O'Connell nearly gave the pilot some heart.

The hour format was too bloated. Like No Ordinary Family, dramedy really calls for a half hour format, the tension in moods is too draining to sustain for that long.

But the women, except for the neighbor, were dull. (Some of us are too jaded to get romantic over our TV sets.) The kid's unhappiness wasn't amusing but is too far fetched to actually feel any sympathy for. Only the wheelchair bound neighbor showed any signs of genuinely comedic conflict, however dark.

Glad to see it, but no loss for not getting picked up I suspect.
