    Brian Austin Green has a new sitcom, but I'm not sure if it's a sitcom really?

    How I phrased the title of this thread is like to say that a novel is neatly typed, but my point is that I don't think they're going so laughs, so really it's not like a lack of humour should count against them. The producers it seemed decided to make a 1/2 hour format romance/drama with "elements" of humour.

    Seriously, I thought I was watching a movie.

    A movie staring Mandy Moore, but neither the less their budget was huge, their cast was seasoned, talented and also huge... I HATE THAT FRAKK MICHAEL FROM LOST... I've almost retroactively forgiven him after being reminded about how cool he was on Romeo and Juliet (the one with Claire Danes and that snot nose punk.)... But I hate his character from lost and it haunts the both of us, yet if Harry was trying to make me despise Michael he did a fabulous job.

    If the band is real, they're pretty good, I'm not saying they don't play their own instruments, but after what happened to the Monkeys it would be pisspoor to make a big deal about the awesomeness of the band and have them faking it, hells it doesn't even look like they're lip-synching to music they taped in studio previously, especially if they think they'll be cross promoting with a CD of original(ish) music from the television show.

    Jenny Wade makes me weak at the knees. (Look her up. You love her too, but your attention deficit is engorging.)

    Bree Turner is double booked. She's trying to do Wedding Band and Grimm at the same time and I suspect that they're not filmed at different ends of the country... Which is why the last few weeks of Grimm have just seen heron the other end of a telephone call.

    Yes, that's Jan from the office too. And she's blonde.

    "schwingg".

    They've set up a lot of interpersonal dynamics and laid a lot of time bombs as far as who is in love with who and whose relationship is about to go boom...

    The only reason this show isn't funny is because they're not telling jokes, but it is clever and engaging and worth a lookiloo.

    I liked it.

    Yeah, I was surprised by how much I enjoyed it. Hell, I even liked the little advertisement they had in the corner for next week's episode.

    "Megan Fox.
    Leather Outfit.
    YOU'RE WELCOME!"

    Will definitely be making it a regular show for me.

    Well obviously now some of you may have realized that this was not a sitcom but a 40 minute dramedy.

    My bad.

    The season finished tonight.

    10 episodes.

    Not bad.

    Funny. Enjoyable and the music was spectacular.

    Hell, it even had James Marsters with an English accent.

    They're an adjustment bureau for love.

    Nothing gross or violent, family friendly.

    Well drugs pop up once or twice, but one of the band members is married to a cop, but how long has it been since Richard Prior died?

    Wedding Band is inoffensively good.

    I had never heard of it until I happened upon it on TV a couple of weeks ago and couldn't look away. It was actually pretty good, a little funny, realistic characters and dialogue, interesting stories. I don't think I'd make weekly viewing out of this (unless some of the other shows I love get cancelled suddenly), but I would certainly catch it on Netflix later.

    Saw the James Marsters one, where's he's the washed-up '80s star; that was pretty good.

    So, is that blonde woman the same person as Bernice on TBBT? Couldn't get a good look at her, but they appeared very similar.

    If you mean their "boss" (the wedding planner), it's Melora Hardin, who played Jan, Michael's girlfriend/boss on the Office.

    Or do you mean the mousey assistant?

    That's Jenny Wade.

    Both beautiful women.

    But there's at least a foot in height between the two.

    Brian Austin Green went to the Hamilton High School Academy of Music.

    Harold Perrineaux has his own band and is recording.

    Not sure about the other two, but they look like they're workin' it.

    Funniest line was the last one in the episode with Megan Fox in it. The band's watching the finale of the TV series her character's in, and Harold's character says something like "that's the second worst ending to a TV series I've ever seen!"

    It was kind of uneven, but it had its moments. Gonna miss Jenny.

    I think it had potential and could have done well in a better time slot.

    It also seemed to me that it was criminally under-promoted.

    I'd never even heard of it until I found it by accident while channel surfing.
