    No thread? Sorted.

    This is the new New Girl - not that it's the same but it has an absolute star in Ellie Kemper (previously in The Office US).
    Co-created by Tina Fey (though she doesn't write it in general).

    Saw all 13 eps on Netflix. Wish Carol Kane was in it more though she's getting a lot of credit (and presumably money) for less screen time.

    Loved Ellie on the Office and this is good too! Daft, but funny! Been spoiled with the whole season all at once.

    I'm halfway through S1. Ellie is hilarious and sweet, prefect part for her.

    Show is good, stupid but good.

    I just started this yesterday and I love it. Totally agree with Blondini, this is perfect for us Parks & Rec fans who are still in mourning over the show.

    I finished this in 3 days. My new favorite show, the sister-wife to 30 Rock!
    Ellie Kemper is adorable and Jane Krakowski remains flawless.

    All the cameos<3
    You owe it to yourself. Set the world on fire.

    this is aight, a light, fun watch

    I love Tina Fey's sense of humor, like the girl who volunteered to join the cult
    and Jane Krakowski is basically playing Jenna Maroney
    'He's been in Japan a lot lately.. you can get a mistress in a vending machine there!'

    I thought her roommate was Raven's brother at first

    he's the worst thing about the show.. also the rebecca black lookalike, she's a such bad actress

    Jane Krakowski is great, not surprised to see her in another Tina Fey comedy. Also loved Ellie Kemper in The Office and she's playing a similar character here. Watched the first three episodes so far, liking it and a lot of funny lines.

    I think this got less good as the series went on, that episode with the trial and the idiotic lawyers was just frustrating more than anything. Still, overall a really watchable show with a fair amount of funny moments/lines.

    Daddy's Boy

    It's one of those shows that is clever. But not 30 Rock clever, just below Arrested Development clever. If you pretend to like Kendrick Lamar whenever he releases new music, I don't think you'll like this show.

    New season April 15.

    Excited, I really loved the first season. It got too retarded near the end though, Tina Fey and the other Lawyer? I know they were trying to be funny but it just got too stupid, even for a show that prides it's self on stupidity
    Anyway, I can't wait!

    Season 2 was such a huge improvement!
    I hated
    Tina's lawyer character in the first season but her new psychiatrist character was brilliant her drunken blackouts were just amazing
    It was great to see Lisa Kudrow playing Kimmys mom!

    Can't wait for season 3 this year!!

    I've just finished watching the first two seasons, and it's got real moments of hilarity. But occasionally I just don't like the characters. Ellie Kemper can be shrill at times and Titus is sometimes a bit too unlikeable.
    Tina Fey was much better in season 2 than in season 1. Jane Krakowski is wasn't in it enough given that she's the funniest character though David Cross' character brings her down a little bit (I just don't find him funny aside from as Tobias - even then only in small doses as well). Lisa Kudrow just fell flat as Kimmy's mum. Anna Camp was hilarious though, I hope she's in it more.

    I preferred season 1 to season 2 and I cannot wait for season 3. I'd go as far as saying that this is the funniest show I've ever watched.

    Season 2 felt better to me. It was more focussed and felt like a proper show and not just them throwing shit at the wall and seeing what stuck.
