I guess I'll bite.

I HATED HATED HATED the first episode of this show, which made me surprised when the second episode was...kind of enjoyable? I don't know, the show still plays like a very special PSA at times, but the scenes with the surrogate and her daughter are all hitting and I like the chemistry of the main couple. They even managed to make the crazy racist nana somewhat resemble a human being with human motivations.

What's to lose by watching a few more episodes of this, I guess. Is anybody else watching?

Ryan Murphy is a turd and the commercials havent interested me at all. But I'm open to hearing what other people think.

The show is bad. I feel like he's just trying to shock people with the grandmother but it's so poorly written that it doesn't matter. But then again, Murphy has made a career on exploiting stereotypes so I'm sure he's just laughing all the way to the bank.

Yep.

I do miss Nip/Tuck sometimes, though.

It was the worst pilot ever. The show is basically just throwing racist, sexist, or homophobic jokes out there and hoping that people still thought they were funny.

The pilot isn't funny. If you're judging on that, then don't watch it. This show can be funny eventually, but for now it's Murphy having a bad day.

I'm pretty sure this is the "I hate The New Normal" thread as opposed to "The New Normal" thread.

I loved the original concept of Nip/Tuck but it became such a shit show towards the end.

Oof, not searching was silly of me. Any way we could maybe merge this thread into the official one?

American Horror Story is pretty good. This does not look so.

They're basically trying to make a Lucille from "Arrested Development" without the wit or nuance.

Yeah that grandma is a big attempt at a Lucille clone.
