Just watched A to Z and it was alright. It gets by on Cristin Milioti's effortless charm. Something I've noticed is that a year after Friends ended, HIMYM used the "group of friends in Manhattan" setup, and now the season after HIMYM, here's A to Z with its "finding the One" premise(with some 500 Days of Summer in there) I doubt this show will go all that long though.

Well it was in developmental abyss because NBC didn't want it, which is why Naseem Pedrad had to stay with SNL for an extra season with nothing to do, and then Fox grabbed it this year. All I see in it are Mulaney standup routines I've already heard being poorly and stiffly acted out. It's one of the least natural sitcoms of all time and I firmly believe the audience is completely canned. It looks and plays like a disney kids sitcom. Quite a waste.

It's not even that the routine to scenario thing can't work, look at Louie. All he does are half episode versions of standup ideas and it's the most original comedy show going. I have to believe if Mulaney had pushed a more creative angle he'd be getting more out of his material, instead they went for mass appeal and I lost all interest.
