I enjoyed it, surprisingly watchable. Anyone else catch it?
I missed it. Is there a replay?
Yeah, really liked it--the hot chicks don't hurt either... How is it networks find these summer fillers that are so good, but give us crap for the "real" regular season?
I watched it but found it a little up and down. We definitely will give it a couple more weeks though. The british guy they teamed him with was very interesting with the sex party and all.
I dig it. I gather the editing style is going to be somewhat less frenetic in the rest of the episodes, which would be a Good Thing, so long as the characters stay as quirky.
I was also taken by surprise by the quality of this show. Story-wise, it probably could have done without the sex-party bit, but the hilarious soccer (sorry, football ) commentary towards the end made up for it. It doesn't look like an Emmy-winner, but it shows promise. Unfortunately, that's the kind of show Fox loves to cancel. BTW, did anybody catch if this was in Fox Widescreen/EDTV?
Simon West directed this episode (he also did Lara Croft Tomb Raider), so all the stylistic camera tricks were on full display. I found myself only paying attention when Eddie's new roomie was in the scene. Mmm... The swingers scene was rather abrupt, but not necessarily an unwelcomed development. The cat and dog bits were also the funnier parts of the premiere. Having the guy from the MI5 (James Bond films of late) be a head cheese for the London side of police force was a little offputting, but I'll get used to it.
I'm just trying to figure out how they're going to keep Alexei Sayle as a regular. He's funny, no question about that, but how do you keep wedging him into the story?
I enjoyed this one quite a bit - quirky, witty, and entertaining all around. Still, as several have offered up already, this is exactly the kind of show Fox loves to cancel. Anyway - here's to hoping "Keen Eddie" sticks around a while...
It wasn't widescreen in NYC. FOX here broadcasts a ton of EDTV stuff in widescreen here, so I'm inclined to think it's just not in widescreen. I don't know if I'm bothered by West ripping off Guy Ritchie so completely, but it was better than, say, John Doe. It also felt like it was more interesting for the visuals than the dialog, plot, or logic. Fun enough to be a keeper during the summer doldrums.
