Copshow/sitcom a bit like The Job or The Unusuals but not as good. Funny but probably not funny enough.

I thought the pilot was okay, funny than I was expecting

Hopefully like Happy Endings it will build on its pilot, which was okay but nowhere near as funny as the rest of the season.

I just hope it doesn't get binned like HE did

I really enjoyed it, you can tell it's from the creators of Parks & Recreation Andy Samberg was surprisingly good too, he wasn't as OTT as i was expecting him to be after seeing him in stuff like Hotrod.

I really enjoyed this one, surprisingly. Not a Samberg fan at all, but he was tolerable in this - and Andre Braugher was fantastic as always.

Thought it was brilliant. Loved every minute of it. A cross between scrubs and police academy with a tiny bit of the office thrown in for good measure.

Brilliant brilliant brilliant . Cant wait for episode 2

If you haven't seen it then you must watch it.

Didn't know the pilot was out - will have to give it a go. I like Andy Samberg from SNL anyway, so i'm sure it'll be good.

I'm sure it's coming to E4 at some point.

Just watched the first episode and I was amused. The lead character I am hoping develops a little more beyond the cliche "Steve Gunttenberg Police Academy Wise Ass". However I can get over that as a few scenes made me chuckle out loud so mission accomplished for a comedy.

Only heard about this from the awards it got the other day.

Is it a bit like Reno 911! ?

It's a good show. I might be a bit biased though.

I've set it up as a series link, looks quite funny from the previews. Didn't know it was starting tonight, was just by chance we were on E4.

OMFG! Is that it?

Comedy? WHERE?

The smug male lead was off-putting from his first line and didn't improve after that.

It's like Blue Bloods Lite. But certainly not in any way a comedy.

The spot on my bum is funnier.

Truly dreadful.

not a single laugh from me throughout the entire show

Andy Samberg is the TV version of Adam Sandler

even worse than Mindy Project (and I'd thought that wasn't possible)

I liked that . Used to watch Andy Samberg a lot on SNL, so i'm used to what he can do.

Looking forward to next week.

It was ok. Not lol funny but some amusing moments. Not as amazing as everyone was making it out to be. I think all the hype after the Golden Globe wins was completely OTT. The Andy Kaufman impersonator was funny.

I like the Lonely Island videos quite a bit. I watched the first episode of this because of him, but was very disappointed. I found it painfully unfunny.

So I was told by Digital Spy that this was one of the best comedies from the US in sometime. It won two Golden Globes at the weekend.

Just one question: why? Am I missing the funny bits.

I was hoping for more but I do think it has potential. I can understand why people think Andy Samberg is annoying. I can see past that, especially when he was in his speedo's!

If you tune in to a comedy show and fail to find it funny or even laugh at all then it's clearly not for you and you shouldn't bother.

And yes, I know i'm stating the bleeding obvious ..

That's why I gave "Veep" one episode because I very quickly found it painful to watch and didn't laugh once.

I've tried to perservere with comedy shows i've not taken to in the past in the hope they've come good and it's been a huge waste of my time so nowadays i don't bother.

If it's something like 'The Tomorrow People' I might give it a couple of episodes, but comedy it's very much one and done if i don't like it.
