the latest episode has a great moment when Carrie drops her smartphone and a series of heart-breaking scenarios unfolds in her imagination as it is falling to the ground.....great stuff

I love when there is an awkward moment, they pause and start playing the creepy CSI music in the background. It's so ill-fitting in some situations that it makes great comedy.

I like the concept and the performances are fine, but I feel like the writing could be better.

it's great when clever and funny meet but sometimes this show is just clever and it's not enough.

The good parts are worth sitting through the not so good parts.

I just watched the first two episodes. When it sucks, it really, really sucks. When it's good, it's good ... and then they drive it into the ground and it sucks.

I'm kinda meh on this show.

I agree with that.

I think most of its clever, but I never laugh out loud during it. Its just OK.

I like the concept of this show, but the execution is lacking at times.

I really like their visuals too.
