    This show had better be picked up. I liked it just based on the premise when I heard about it a few weeks ago and now that Stamos and Lilliard are cast in it, I want to see it even more.

  3. Eric says:

    Lillard and Stamos in a series together? Are we sure that this is a drama?

    • Courteous Vampire says:

      Lillard can do dramas as well. I know his main roles were comedies, but the guy really can act when given the right role.

  4. Zachary says:

    I am assuming it’s a dramedy. It is billed as “House as a divorce lawyer”.

  5. Rain says:
