The trailer looks awful. The political jokes are stale these days.

Seems like a "love it or hate it" type of show.

Looks like it's down to 40% now... yikes. I was really looking forward to this too!

It's getting picked apart by critics right now. User reviews are decent so far. Consensus seems to be that jokes and writing is weak but the top cast works well.

Will have to check it out. I think it's out today isn't it?

Has anyone here actually watched it? I'll give the first episode a shot, first two if the whole series is already on Netflix. I usually find episode 1s are a bit flat in most Netflix series.
c'mon get happy!

I'll check it out later. It's supposed to be a farce of Trump's new military branch?

If it falls flat then I know the critics are correct.
If it's good then the critics are likely Trump supporters.

You're on the money with that - not sure I'm going to continue as much as I like the actors in this.

Well I watched the first two today but there are more gripping things on TV right now. Not sure I'll continue in any case. It's just not as funny as I was hoping.
c'mon get happy!

Finished the season last night. I enjoyed it, but could be better. Going in, I thought it was would be something like over the top comedy (Super Trooper, Kimmy Schmidt), but found it to be more plot/story driven.... like a prequel to The Orville.

Big disappointment, to me. But, then again, I've never cared for Steve Carrell.

Binged it all Friday/Saturday and I quite enjoyed it. It wasn't really good but good enough that I enjoyed it and there were some good laughs and now I am waiting for season 2

Very strong cast and generally sitcoms/comedies get better after first season especially a Greg Daniel show
