Watched the first episode.  WTF?  No thanks.

I've only seen the first episode so far, and while I liked some of it, it didn't really grab me... but I'll try another one or two.

I absolutely love it. Liv Hewson is always fun to watch, Drew BArrymore is Drew Barrymore, and Timothy "Oh My God He's Everything I Ever Wanted" Olyphant is really fun in this one. It's a lot of iZombie's trope-exploration but taken in a very different direction.

This is my new jam.

Watched all of it in one day. It's pretty fun.

There are at least two vomit scenes, but I thought they were appropriate. My wife is also hooked.

I've watched the first two episodes so far.  I wasn't crazy about the first episode, but the second one was pretty hysterical.  However, you need to watch the first episode for the second one to make any sense.

The show grew on me as it went along, so I went ahead and finished it -- funny stuff! I don't watch many sitcoms any longer, but found myself LOLing here in several places. I think the biggest laugh that got me has to do with an eye...

Timothy Olyphant is a terrific comic actor, and it was fun to watch Drew Barrymore go nuts. However:

Anyway, thumbs up.

Since you all seem to like it more as it moves along, maybe I'll try again. I thought Timothy was great, Drew was terrible, and the writing was garbage, though it was amusing at times. I enjoy it when I don't feel like I'm watching a TV show. The Walking Dead did not used to feel like a TV show, now it screams TV in the way it's written. I felt this suffered from seeing the writer's hand too often at work. YMMV
