I'll watch, because Poehler can be funny... but it essentially looks as if she's going to be a female version of Michael. So I don't know how long I can handle that before it gets irritating.

how is this gonna be an Office spinoff?
It's not. It was going to be, but they reconfigured it.

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.

This show is pretty funny. Leslie is a little too similar to Michael, but it fits Poehler's comedic style so I'm not sure how much she can change it.

I find this show to get better with each episode -- I laughed a lot last night.

This show has really grown on me. Ron is my favorite; but poor Jerry haha.

Leslie is a little too Michael Scott sometimes, but she is so naive and innocent, I just feel bad and have to root for her. The drunk date was cute.

I like Leslie. She tries so hard to be a good person for the city. She still has the ignorance of a Michael Scott, but is far more charming and sweet. Ron Swanson though... he is still the man.

The man-pillow part was great. "It's shaped like Daniel Craig... plus, I have a bad lower back."

Andy in particular was the best part of last night. I also really like Louis C.K.'s character.

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.

"Burt Macklin, FBI Agent."

I think Andy might be my overall favorite. I love me some Ron Swanson/Duke Silver, but Andy seriously cracks me up every time he's on-screen.

Rob Lowe and Adam Scott are joining the show to replace Brandanowitz? Wow, that's pretty cool. Did not hear about that; only knew Paul Schneider was leaving.

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.
