Starring: Matthew Perry and John Cho [full cast list under the 'Cast' tab] Series Premiere: September 11, 2012
Genre: Comedy
Running Time: 30 minutes
Network: NBC
The Synopsis: Matthew Perry stars as Ryan King, a recent widower and sports talk radio host ready to get back to work after the loss of his wife. Ryan’s alpha-male boss, Steven (Cho), has a different plan in store for Ryan, making him attend grief counseling before returning to the air.
A reluctant Ryan finds himself in a support group for “life change” where he meets an oddball cast of characters, all with their own backstories filled with varying degrees of loss. On his very first visit, Ryan convinces the group to deviate from their normal session and starts a tournament-style competition (March Sadness!) to find out whose story is the worst. Ryan’s total lack of interest in “the healing process” proves distracting, and he soon butts heads with the by-the-books group leader, Lauren. Back at work, Ryan is confronted with the fact that he hasn’t really processed his grief and realizes Lauren and the other members of the group might be key in helping him move on.

    The show is beyond awful. I just watched the one where it’s getting colder because the “egg is the energy source and is gone” nonsense. People are dying because it’s so cold but no one has an actual winter coat. You can’t see anyone’s breath. The scenes where the black guy escapes from prison and gores himself on a stalagmite are hysterical. The science teacher/”expert on everything” says it’s getting colder because the dome is rotating the upper atmosphere to the ground. It just goes on and on.

    I am embarrassed for Steven Spielberg.
