The wife and I love this show. It's starts slow but picks up big time. It's our second favorite Apple TV show behind Ted Lasso. Harrison Ford is brilliant.

By the way, I didn't realize until after the fact that this is from the same creator as Ted Lasso (Bill Lawrence). No wonder the wife and I love this show so much.

I'm 3 episodes in now and still not sure what to make of it. I almost bowed out after the first episode. I don't think I could have sat through an entire series that had that tone and weight to it. E2 and 3 shifted a little and caught me more though. If the show stays more like them than the first episode then I'll keep with it.

We didn't know what to make of it either after episode 1. IMO, the show just keeps getting better and better as the season goes on.

Agreed. By seasons end it is a totally different vibe than the first few episodes which were kinda hard to get through.

This was a really good. I wasn’t sure where it was going but I liked where it ended up

Agreed. I'm through 5 episodes now and it's getting stronger as it goes. Glad I stuck with it.
My favorite episode is the party episode. I had no clue Harrison Ford could be this funny.

Harrison Ford made this show much more watchable. Overall it was decent. Found myself looking at my phone more and more by the end.
