I started out not really liking it. Until they got to the part about finding out the boy is on the autism spectrum.

Hit VERY close to home and I had trouble not to keep crying. I hope they continue having the storyline of a child on the autism spectrum. I think so many parents these days can either relate to that or will benefit from seeing that.

Loved it! I'm pregnant, so not surprisingly, I cried through the show episode I also thought the autism storyline was great because those two parents could be ANY parents. I'm interested to see where they go with that.

I thought it was pretty good. I caught the second half of it. Seemed very touching, we'll see how real they can keep it.

I liked it, but I fear they're going to end up making it too much of a complete drama. I mean, I think with Lauren Graham it'll always have some funny. But I just hope it doesn't turn into a night time soap opera.

ETA: It reminded me of a drama version of Modern Family.

Oh, I want to see it. I LOVE the movie. I think it's one of my fav movies of all time, actually. Looks like the storylines are pretty similar so I was wondering if the pilot episode would just be a remake of the movie.

Loved it! Then again, I absolutely love Lauren Graham and think Dax Shepard is really hot, so the great story line was just a benefit

I watched it last night on Hulu (forgot to DVR it). I liked it well enough to watch it again next week. I too hope it doesn't get too be too much of a drama-only; it looks as if it has the potential of being overly depressing. But, there were some touching moments, and some entertaining ones too.

Ok the sperm in the freezer was stupid, since that isn't how it works ( frozen sperm is actually stored in a liquid nitrogen tank not some basic freezer) but I tried to let that go LOL

Thanks for reminding me. I only recorded the last part of it. For some reason, the dvr didn't start by itself so I didn't realize it until it was almost over.

I enjoyed it. Can't remember the characters names so I can't be really specific but having been a WOHM with 60+ hour work weeks when my oldest was little I can really relate to the swimming situation.

I'm still watching. I really enjoy it. I'm looking forward seeing where it goes. I love, love, love Lauren Graham.

Even if the sperm in the freezer is unrealistic...I found it funny. Could you seriously imagine being at your SO house (or anyone's) and just pulling out a tank of frozen sperm?

I just got caught up today. I am very much enjoying it. I, too, find the mommy-wars bit tedious and annoying but I'm hoping we'll actually get to know both mommies better and see the complexities of the choices made.

I think they are doing a really great job with the Aspergers diagnosis and struggle for services. If nothing else, episode 3 really highlighted how much social, education and economica privilege really come into play. In the movie, that character (the little boy) was dx'd with OCD and "having worries." I don't think anyone was talking about the autism spectrum and aspergers back then.

I just think the writing is too cliche and stereotypical Hollywood, and I grew up and lived in LA for over 30 years. You can really see the mainstream movie type writing here IMO. I like the actors in it but it is no where near my favorite show though.

I am enjoying it still too. I agree with Arduinna in that it is a bit too cliche, but I also find it a bit more "real" than some of the other shows I enjoy. I was happy that the (at least briefly) showed the older sister's side of the Asperger's story. Having three kids, it can be hard enough some days to make sure they are all feeling attended to, but I can only imagine how much harder that would be with a SN child. And yea, the mommy-war thing is annoying (personally I find both the moms obnoxious); I too hope they continue to develop the characters and give them more depth.

Oh, it's definitely cliche. So was the movie (although the movie dialog was a bit sharper). I like schmaltz, though, every now and again.

At this point, the only reason why I watch it is because of the autism/aspergers story line.
