Woof.

I like Fran Drescher. I love Adam Pally. I have fond memories of Steven Weber. I adore Abby Elliott.

And this show sucked. I just... I cannot imagine how much I would have hated it if I hadn't loved the leads so much. I so desperately want this show to be good, and I've already resigned myself to watching a couple more just to see if it recovers, but at the same time, I hope it just gets cancelled so I don't have to mercy-kill it off my DVR queue (a la The Unicorn).

Yeah, I had to give it a shot out of The Nanny & Wings nostalgia, and because I'll give pretty much every network pilot a look-see & a Fanfare thread (aside from the police-procedurals, which are a hard pass unless there's some kind of genre or interesting cop/not-a-cop hook), but, oof.

I've seen worse, but, I think I'll be killing it off the Tivo queue before the next episode. And I'm still watching 'The Unicorn' -- I don't know if that's an endorsement of 'The Unicorn' or a sign of my lack of standards, but either way, this is not a must-see.

I wouldn't say that The Unicorn is actively bad, and it's certainly several steps less bad than Indebted, but it drifted farther and farther down our priority list and started accruing at the bottom of the DVR queue, and I finally realized we just... didn't care about it anymore.
