Depends entirely on who is wearing it.  On her, I approve.  On some women it looks horrible.

No, you're not alone there.

So can we get some clarification please?  When used as an adjective, does "pants" mean "good" or "bad"?

I watched the whole first season of 2 Broke Girls back in May.  I downloaded a torrent and watched them all sort of in the background, on my 2nd monitor, while playing Final Fantasy 7 on the other one.  It's a very standard sitcom.  Laugh track, multiple cameras, lame jokes with people inexplicably pausing for laughter.  I didn't really mind it when it was a background show.  I tried to give an episode my undivided attention last night.  It turns out the show sucks.

Watching the first two episodes of The Mindy Project right now.  I like it okay so far.  Mindy Kaling is funny and talented.  No obnoxious laugh track, so the dialogue flows more naturally.  I like that her character is the exact same age as me.  Makes it more relatable.  Also love that Stephen Tobolowsky is on this show.  He's great in just about everything, except when he's saddled by a terrible script.

I read this (because it was on the top of the page) and I SO hoped you were talking about Zooey Deschanel....because then I would have liked it A MILLION TIMES!


But alas
Anais is the Coolest Butterfly I know  ;D

Actually, she's grating on me too.... I liked her in Elf, but ever since then everything else she's done has made me want to remove her from existance. Especially that new show of hers.

Yes.

So is it 'mustard' or 'pants?'


We really enjoyed The Mindy Project pilot, haven't had a chance to watch ep 2 yet. We never got into the American Office, and that is basically the first I've ever seen of her, and thought she was great.

Revolution took three episodes to have a really good one, but I really enjoyed this week's episode.

Last Resort is super fun. The first 20 minutes made us cringe a bit though, so I'm really glad we stuck with it.

666 Park Avenue turned out to be pretty boring in the pilot, but not bad enough to stop us from trying at least one more episode. The super natural/horror/whatever stuff all seemed so obvious... Dunno... Anyone really enjoy it?
FINE

Second episode of the Mindy Kaling Project was much funnier than the pilot.

Watched the first ep of Hunted over the weekend - starts slowly, but by the end, we really enjoyed it. Worth checking out!

I'm curious as to what Satan is doing running an apartment complex.  I mean, sure, it's a pretty valuable piece of real estate on the Upper East Side, but I don't think the Prince of Darkness has any need for money. I can't really think of any other reasons either. One would think that the job of corrupting the souls of a handful of attractive Manhattan yuppies could be delegated to someone higher up on the lowerarchy.
Correction: the coat hanger should be upside down.

Yep, I agree on this. I never put much weight behind the first handful of eps for a new comedy, but the 2nd was a clear step up from the pilot.

I'm also somewhat enjoying "Go On"... I do think Matthew Perry needs to be reigned in a bit... as sometimes his Matthew Perry-ness-isms gets more grating than your average case of Matthew Perry-ness... But the rest of the cast is generally good and provided capable support and respites from too much Matthew Perry-ness. But if you have low tolerance for Matthew Perry-ness, then steer clear. Not sure how the basic premise of the show (Chandler from Friends in a support group after Courtney Cox dies in a tragic accident) will carry over the long haul... but I have found myself chuckling more then I thought I would over the first handful of episodes.
