Just watched the first episode finally. I actually liked it a lot. Leslie is very Michael Scott-ish, but it fits her and Poehler's own comic style. Aziz is kind of like Jim and Dwight rolled into one, and since he's sort of a smarmy douche, I like that contrast to Leslie.
All in all, I didn't get a huge laugh out of anything, but I chuckled frequently... which is more than I can say for most other comedies out there.
Oh, and I love that she has a signed Larry Bird portrait behind her desk.
Gonna have to finish this on hulu later. The rip I downloaded was messed up and I could only watch until Ron and his ex get to the hotel and are ripping their clothes off in the parking lot. Ron & Andy are the funniest characters on this show.

plus the thing about April being a baby when he was in 3rd grade killed me
Hahaha when he said "You won me over," I lost it. He never fails to crack me up each episode.
Ya, and it's win-win-win bc Schneider really adds nothing to the show, imo. Can't wait, especially for Adam Scott.
Yeah, I agree. Felt like after the first six episodes, he'd be doing something, but turned out all he's done is stuck around for the sake of Ann. He's never involved in any inner-office shenanigans, and I initially figured he'd be the Jim of this show. Lowe's presence/personality will add a lot more to it all.
