I found it fun, witty and worth another look.

Yeah, I thought it was decent. Fillion and Katic have pretty good chemistry.

That was a fun, lighthearted show. I wonder if it was actually intended for Fillion since it seemed tailored to some of what he can do. It also seemed like CSI in a sense that on that show, crime lab people are also fully capable as real cops, and in this show a writer is as capable as a real cop.

If anyone cares, the judge is the voice of Homer Simpson and the dying multi-millionaire father is Dave Bowman.

And I believe the blonde is Monet Mazur:

I liked it. There was a lot of fun moments. I liked Cannell and Patterson! I liked Kier Dullea. I liked Homer Simpson. I liked the mother and the daughter. The plot was not obvious or obtuse. Reminds me of Columbo. I hope they keep the light tone. I'll tune in next week.

I liked it. Not crazy over it or anything but it's entertaining enough.

I'm not wild about procedurals but this along with "Lie To Me" surprised me this year. Like "House" there's a little more to them than just "whodunnit." Not a lot more, to be sure, but enough.

I'll give this another shot next week. As long as the whole thing doesn't get too dour and Fillion keeps doing his thing I'm sure it'll be an okay little show.

Ok. Wanted to check this out but guess that's going to be hard.

My TiFaux is booked on Mondays.

Very much a "Bones" vibe with the roles reversed, he the writer and she the cop. I like "Bones" though so I'll give this one a shot.

That comparison was one of my two reasons to watch, the other being I like Nathan Fillon. Met him at DragonCon some 5yr ago and he was really cool despite the long line and I must have been the 255th person he had seen.

I give it an AVERAGE. I'll check out a few more eps to be sure. I give all new shows I'm interested in that 6 episode barrier.

The wife and I watched it last night. Enjoyable, but if Nathan Fillion hadn't been in it I don't know that either of us would have tuned in.

Looking forward to next week. I hope they keep the bit with other authors and the card game.

I was bored out of my mind watchin' the premiere last night.

I'll give it a couple of episodes, see if it improves at all...if not, I'm out.

Loved it. It wouldn't work at all without Nathan. That said, he's in it, so it's awesome.

Agreed. He carries the show. Whether it succeeds or fails rests largely on his shoulders.

Is it strange that this felt more Joss-y than Dollhouse?

ABC is repeating the show Saturdays at 10pm/9 central in most markets if you have TiVo space available then.
