Hope this turns out to be as good as the previews I have seen. LOL at the mother's dogs being named Tony and Romo. They do love their football in Texas.

Looking forward to it. It has Colton Shires (known as Lil E from Passions) in it.

Not sure yet.

I personally find Kristin Chenoweth is like nails on a chalkboard for me. The only thing i found her tolerable in is Pushing Daisies but she might surprise me in this.

Yeah, the line was ...

Carlene: "She's dressed like a migrant worker."
Cricket: "Well, I guess the feds took her clothes."

I have no idea what my favorite line is even... it's just delish.

Watched it & liked it alot.

Great to see Greg Vaughn again & his character was Rick Vaughn, go figure :lol:

Some memorable quotes

"That's Arlene?"
"She's had a little work done"
"A little work? That's a tear down" :lol: :lol:

"She's a yo-yo 'er. Right now the Yo is up" :lol:

"I'm grateful to have a job at Boobylicious. I'm grateful to employer Kitten Corp, which is a wholly owned subsidiary of Cockburn Unlimited. God Bless Ripp & Carlene....Cockburn" :lol: :lol: How she said Cockburn at the end had me cracking up.

I already love Ripp and Carlene Cockburn. I mean, their names alone... Precious and Kitten, as they say ;)

Annie Potts is amazing, so is Miriam Shor and Jennifer Aspen. KCho's a given for me, but I'd watch this even without her in it. But she is perfect for this role.

Not bad. It has potential. Right now I find that only Carlene and Annie Pott's character are the only ones with a personality. All the other women were caricatures or had zero personality. Its a little too campy. With a little work, it has potential. It had some good zingers.

I found the gay storyline a little too obvious. I was sitting, watching, and thinking to myself, "I wonder when they will roll out the gay storyline." Five minutes later, there it was. I just feel like ABC has become very formulaic and have all but reduced gay individuals to stereotypes. They are nothing but docile saints or busy decorating.

Am I the only one who was severely annoyed by Carlene? It's not even Kristin Chenoweth (with whom I usually have no problem) so much as it is just the character as she's written, I think. This bitch needs to be sedated.

"I feel like she needs to know about Zach & Amanda?"
"What!?"
"Oh, the devil put that in my mouth"
"Hurt me, Jorge, Hurt me! I deserve it"
(Jorge pulls her legs apart)
"Ahhh, Thank u" :lol: :lol:

I enjoyed the first episode but do agree that most of the characters are over the top caricatures for the most part. But that is probably what I liked the most. It is just silly fun and not taking it self too seriously. There were these one liners throughout and it is the type of show that I can just watch and be entertained by. I watch enough shows that take themselves too seriously or that I focus too much on the characters that I actually lose interest in the show when they don't act the way I think they should. It has the characteristics that shows like Desperate Housewives and Glee had in their original seasons that kept me watching. My only concern is when success is gotten that they start to take themselves too seriously. Keep it cheesy and fun.

I do hope they go into how bad Amanda was to Carlene. I might get tired of Carlene spitting out Bible verses and stuff but whatever Amanda did to her in high school has messed this girl up. LOL at the line about how Carlene had work done. "That was a tear down."

And how did I not realize that was Greg Vaughn. :shrug: Need to go back and watch again.
