I really like this as an office comedy. Janine and her mix of flaws and strengths is an endearing main character. I’m not sure about the principal but I love her being able to fail up somehow and her clear amorality. Of course she’s a prepper.

I'm thoroughly enjoying this, and this episode's cold open with 6ABC and Jim Gardner was so perfect. Jim is like Philadelphia's hot grandfather -- or maybe that just for women of a certain age.

The principal cracks me up, especially her parroting the student's mother, "But you're doing it so well." I'm enjoying her cluelessness.

I love that this part of our world is being shown, and shown so well. Also, it seems to be a very sweet and funny show.
