This looks awful. Poor Bates. I’ll keep faith because Lorre has pulled it off with Mom and seasons 3-6 of Big Bang but that trailer is testing me.August 9, 2017 at 6:13 am #1202179895
Multi-cam with laugh track and f-bombs. This is a basic TV vehicle instead of something representative of the golden age we’re in.August 9, 2017 at 7:00 am #1202179910
Yeah just based on that trailer….I’m gonna pass on this one.August 9, 2017 at 7:02 am #1202179912
The best part of Mult cam comedy for me isn’t the jokes, it’s the characters. One Day at a Time had a terrible trailer composed of all of the cheesiest jokes. Hoefully this is the same. It is hard to make a good trailer for multi cam. However Netflix did another raunchy multi cam, The Ranch, and that was not good. I will hold out hope until the reviews.August 9, 2017 at 10:06 am #1202180086
Oh wtf, I was looking forward to this. I still give it a try but this trailer was awful. Why can’t Bates be in a good TV show already?August 9, 2017 at 10:58 am #1202180119
Bates won her first Emmy for a Lorre show so I am holding out hope this doesn’t end up as bad as it looks.August 9, 2017 at 1:47 pm #1202180253
It’s weird to see multi-cam shows on netflix but I’m definitely giving this a chance. I like Bates and shows about weed.August 9, 2017 at 4:35 pm #1202180394
Have not seen the trailer, but I do not know what you all were expecting from Chuck Lorre. Anyway, Kathy Bates got nominated—even at SAG—for Harry’s Law, so this should net her a nomination at least for the first season.August 9, 2017 at 4:52 pm #1202180409
I can’t see Bates making it in but if it ends up not being totally panned then maybe probably not though with all this years nominees returning and many more contenders with actually good shows will emerge throughout the year.August 9, 2017 at 5:24 pm #1202180436
But it looks horrible, see the trailer and I wonder if you’ll say this still.
Lorre makes horrible shows. That is what he does.
Mom is not a horrible show. Many people will back me up on that.
Also, a few years ago I think Bates would’ve been a lock even if it was terrible, but there is a lot of competition especially this year. And the taste of the academy is evolving. It won’t be long until they don’t touch multi cams at all, sadly. They even snubbed Rita Moreno, despite having industry respect and critical respect in an extremely weak category.August 23, 2017 at 12:06 am #1202192465
I was hoping that if Bates had to tke up a nomination it’d at lest be for a decent vehicle.
