    I just finished watching it,and it's was funny. William Shatner's character is very funny like when He break the 4th wall. I hope it have a second episode,and being some of Shatner's buddies.

    I thought it was a pretty basic low level sitcom. Didn't bother to break any new ground. It simply functioned to get Shatner to (attempt) to say funny (still debating if they were funny) zingers. Had the most bare bones plot and lazy writing I've seen in a long, long time.

    Shatner carried the whole pilot. I'll keep watching just for him.

    Honestly felt like a neutered All in the Family. Justin Helpern should have just stuck to updating the twitter feed more often that working on this.

    On the other hand, it is Shatner...

    I think the show had an okay start. Shatner was the best part IMO. I'll stick around and see how it does as the season progresses.

    I was laughing something fierce. It was like conversations I have had with both my father and grandfather

    It was alright, the beginning was really slow and honestly I don't care about the character enough to worry about how he feels about his father.

    I heard that they recast Henry after the first episode. If true, maybe a different actor might make it better.

    This show would have worked in the 80s. But I'll give it few more episodes for Shatner.

    I watched it, and thought it was ok. Nothing special, and nothing that will really make me tune in again.

    The highlight was Shatner commenting how no one can do a good impression of him.

    I watched it.

    Though I like Shatner, the show quite frankly sucked ass. Nicole Sullivan, who I liked in KoQ, was completely unfunny, as were the other actors. A comedy never works when the actors themselves can't generate a laugh without a line.

    It was pretty basic by the book sitcom humor, but as others have said, having Shatner in it makes it somewhat more enjoyable. I'll watch it a few more times in hopes it improves. At least its better than that Accidentally on Purpose(not by much though). Did anyone watch Better With You? Boy did that suck hard.

    Didn't like it at all. Never even laughed. I went in with the lowest of hopes, and I still felt disappointed.

    I agree with everyone else. I watched the first 15 min for Shatner. rest of the cast was horrible. Then started my DVR'd 30 Rock episode.

    This show was not funny at all not one bit. I'm sorry but they heavily relied on Shatner and thus they didn't make any other charecter at all interesting.


    This show is going to be as forgotten as Back to You.

    This is how i felt. I'll watch it for him because i thought the character and some of the lines were funny.

    I almost flipped it during the first 5 mins. I'm glad i stuck around tho, there were some pretty good parts from Shatner.

    I thought it was pretty boring really... even Shatner being belligerent didn't save it.
