Didn’t see a thread for this, so thought I’d start one. If there is one, feel free to delete.
The opening of this episode was epic! I definitely haven’t laughed so hard at any comedy so far this new season. This show hasn’t missed a beat from a great first season and Casey Wilson needs some major award recognition.
Love the cast and loved the episode. Definitely the best season or series premiere of the season (even better than “Raising Hope” which I am a huge fan of).
This paired with Modern Family gives ABC the BEST hour comedy block in a long while.September 29, 2011 at 7:57 am #230367
I’m so glad this show is back! This episode was really fun!September 29, 2011 at 9:27 am #230368
Best part was Max taking the challenge on being black. And of course I agree that Casey Wilson needs to be recognized somewhere.
Also, I was happy to see Elisha Cuthbert finally getting a hand at the comedy she’s required to do with this show and these people. Her hoop dance was hilarious.
It wasn’t the best of episodes, but I did like it a lot and I’m glad the show is back.September 29, 2011 at 10:24 am #230369
Love this show!!
Year of Penny!September 29, 2011 at 9:58 pm #230370
I didn`t watch this show the first season. I gave it a shot because people were saying good things about it. The cast seems to have really good chemistry with one another, and the opening was very funny. Max trying to be black was funny as well. Also, the fact that he had The View recorded on Penny`s DVR. I really enjoyed the episode.

I am currently catching up on the first season. I like it. I think that like Friends, if any of them were to win anything, it will be Casey Wilson, who is the Lisa Kudrow of this show.October 3, 2011 at 10:21 am #230372
Love this show and glad it got renewed and is back! Excellent first episode giving Penny a lot to do. I read an interview with the creator that said this season will give the characters Max and Penny mature relationships that span longer than just one episode and that there will be more of an episode to episode narrative as well.
This really was one of the biggest surprises of last mid-season. Everybody watch so it sticks around!October 5, 2011 at 9:23 am #230373
Love this show too!!! I can definately see it being one of (if not THE) favorites this season if it continues at the same level it has been. The cast just works so well together. Casey Wilson (who I HATED on SNL) is really funny here as is the guy your plays Max (don’t know his name yet).October 5, 2011 at 9:39 am #230374
Happy Endings Episode: “Baby Steps”
Episode Synopsis: Alex’s store becomes a hot new hangout for teenage girls who’ve totally and inappropriately co-opted the cute slogans on the T-shirts she designed for a line of baby clothes. Meanwhile, Jane, who donated an egg in college, goes on a quest to find the now-11-year-old daughter she believes is out there.

This was another good episode. It was pretty funny seeing Brad in a dress. I think the funniest part of the episode was when Max was interacting with the customer that wanted a vegan sandwich.
“Baby Steps”: B+October 5, 2011 at 9:45 pm #230376
A very good one again.
Brad in a dress, the Samantha joke, the vegan guy, the Cocktail sequence, the girls in the store…it was very funny. Love this show.October 6, 2011 at 7:04 am #230377
Totally agree. I loved all those parts. The whole cast is great, but Adam Pally, Damon Wayans Jr., and Casey Wilson are just fantastic.October 6, 2011 at 8:48 am #230378
This show is so damn funny. The mean girls in the store was just awesome. I find myself having to go back a few frames after I’m done laughing to make sure I didn’t miss another hilarious line. They’re so quick.
If this show gets the Awards love it deserves (at least 5 of its cast memeber nominated), this would make an excellent tape for the underappreciated Eliza Coupe. Her facial expressions, timing, and delivery are so good. Casey Wilson and Adam Pally get a lot of love for the show, but the rest of the cast – minus Zachary Knighton – are award worthy.October 6, 2011 at 8:59 am #230379
I was dying at the fight Max was having with that guy over the steak and vegan sandwich.
