I thought this was more a drama with the odd comedic element than a proper sit-com?

Well the preview i saw, mentioned that it was the "The best comedy in ages" so ...i might be wrong...to be honest with you, it did look more like "Las Vegas" than "SCRUBS" ...

Seen the first two now and although it's not brilliant nor laugh out loud funny i'm still enjoying it.

Could do without the English bloke as i don't think he quite gels but the rest of them seem like a good bunch. Most of the actors are recognisable if you watch a lot of US TV. (Alias, Buffy, Friends etc). I too thought it'd be something semi serious, especially the first episode when they make out the main character to be some Gordon Ramsey wannabe, but it's only 20 odd minutes long and it's pretty easy to watch.

I've enjoyed the first 2 eps of this and 'How I Met Your Mother'.

Hope neither gets cancelled if they carry on as they've started.

The book is better.

The main bloke is the ****** from "the Wedding Crashers".

Tis a bit of a laugh though but I think they have shot the bolt after 3 episodes as I can't see where it's going now.

In truth it's kind of the other way round, the main character is based on Anthony Bourdain (whose book Kitchen Confidential this seires is based on), so Ramsey is more a Bourdain wannabe.

Gets the from me too. One thing though how come the Korean guy from American Pie is hardly in it ? He was only in the end of episode 2 and wasn't even in the third episode.

Just caught up with the 1st 3 episodes. It's not bad at all, and quite funny in places.

It's also been canceled along with Arrested Development.

It seems the tv stations in the US want instant success or the shows get canned.
