    20 Good Years - What did you think (with poll)

    I just watched the new show 20 Good Years with John Lithgoe and Jeffrey Tambor. I think this is going to be absolutely hysterical. I loved the pilot (John lithgoe in a speedo? What's not to love???).

    Just wanted to get the word out, I think this is going to hit it's stride and be a good one to watch!

    I voted for good, but thats just judging from the Pilot. This show has a lot of potential, which I am sure it will explore. It will turn out to be great, and thank God its not on Fox, because they'd just cancel it.

    (note: I found the laugh track to sound kind of out of place. With shows like Friends and Seinfeld it fits, but for some reason, it just sounded awkward with this show.)

    I was wondering if that was a live audience or not (I figured not) - are laugh tracks really necessary?

    My husband wanted to try it out, so we taped it. As he watched it, I heard it (didn't actually "see" any of it) from the adjacent room. I thought it was awful. I like John Lithgow and Jeffrey Tambour, but I thought they were so over-the-top, but not in a funny or joke kind of way. It was like listening to Bad Acting 101. (Anyone see Derek Jacobi's guest stint on "Frasier"? He was perfect, but he was intentionally overacting.)

    He's going to continue watching it. I will make sure to be out of seeing and hearing distance when he is.

    I just got around to watching the show on DVR and I have to go with liking it for now. I do hate the laughtrack, definitely not needed. I love both Lithgow and Tambor, the potential for this show is great, hopefully it's given a chance to show it. It was much better than 30 Rock.

    I think the show was cancelled! I'm so disappointed. I really think it was going to be a great show once they got into the "groove" of things!

    I was looking on my DVR recording list last night and noticed no episodes on the "to record" list, so I think you're right it was canceled, but I never heard anything about it.
