  • I love Judy Greer and all, but the premise of that show sounds REALLY bad. I mean, execution matters more than anything else, but still…

    • Yep. This seems like one of those ideas that is great on the story board, but peters out after a few seasons, at most.

    • Read the script. It’s one of those shows that is more about the characters than the premise. And based on the crew, I expect great things in execution.

  • Judy Greer was a great tv lead in Miss Guided, but that show was D.O.A. for some reason (not because it was bad). Whatever she does, I hope they find a way for her to work with Chris Parnell again.

    • She works with him a lot. They dated for a few episodes on Mad Love and they are both in Archer.

      • I haven’t seen Mad Love, but I totally blanked on the fact they’re both in the Archer cast. D’oh!

  • Nat Faxon was so terrible in Ben and Kate. Judy Greer deserves better.

    • She does deserve better, but that is just because Judy Greer is friggin’ awesome. Faxon is no slouch though. Ben and Kate turned into crap after a few episodes, but the guy has been great in other stuff. And he is an Oscar winner.

  • I remember hearing about this show appearing on Cinemax called Quarry the plot is quite interesting dealing with Vietnam which I think it takes place. That should be something I could be interested in.
    Cinemax is making some interesting shows on air with Hunted and Banshee and Strike Back.
