    Okay....so, who's seen the show? Its a 30 minute sitcom on Fox that airs on Tuesdays (I think). I watched a few episodes, and its freaking hilarious!!!!!

    For me it started slow, but is getting better. I did like when he ignored ATC because he wanted to ask her out.

    They were going to have @denverpilot in it but they had trouble with the brief 25 minute format ;)

    I don't see it having any legs. There are only so many jokes to be made about a low life cad, a ditzy blond and black gay guy. The gambler, stripper and guy visiting his ex have even more limited story lines.

    That said, I'll keep watching until it looks like reruns or they build the high speed rail.

    They need more guest appearances to make it fresh. It bothers me that you know a committee hired the actors. "Lets see, we need (1) cute skinny blonde as a lead, (1) minority and we can save money if that minority is LBGQTWESFYTNS, (1 or more) eye candy highly sexualized girls, and throw in some nutty off the wall foreign accent people. "

    But I will watch it until it gets cancelled. It no The Office, but its a quick entertaining time waster.

    Honestly, I think the show is good for 1, maybe 2 seasons...but so far, its certainly entertaining with the humor.

    Like Portlandia, which said everything it had to say (and all of it deadly accurate) in the first six weeks or so, then just got repetitive, shallow and self-indulgent. But then, so is Portland. o_O

    I just saw an ad for it last night. The first I've heard of it. I'm really disappointed in you guys for not telling me about it before the first episode. Stupid sitcoms are right up my alley.

    I hope they work out the money issue with Nate. One thing sitcoms need more of are crusty old men. :D

    From watching the 7-second clip, the show reminded me a lot of 6PC's Cirrus videos.

    I think you'd be hard-pressed to find a comedy sitcom that doesn't fall on the stupid/dumb side nowadays.

    Does it have a laugh track? If it has a laugh track I ain't watching. Ever watch kids show? The laugh track is insufferable.

    I watched three tonight. Now it's on the DVR.

    Not sure if I'll thank or curse the OP for alerting me to this televised train wreck. :)

    I saw the first episode and then only about two minutes of last nights episode where he wanted to ask out the controller. It made me laugh today flying home when I was talking to a female controller and thought they will all be catching grief. I feel sorry for them.

    I say it'll last all of one season, but what do I know. That stripper chick is pretty hot... the stew is okay.

    Remember the Pan-Am show from 2011 or there-abouts? Thought that was an exceptional program and it got cancelled pretty fast... too bad.

    It sounds like they got this idea from the famous Southwest Airline's "stripper flights." They are legendary with the SWA pilots. Friday evening flight from LAX-LAS is filled with "dancers" going to Vegas to work the strip (sts) over the weekend.

    We’re working on it, but they are acting like they can’t pay better than IT. Bastards. :)

    The one liners are great. :)
