    I wasn't that impressed with Season 1 either. It's fairly obvious that there was a ton of retooling done before Season 2 and it has paid off well. Getting rid of Mark Brandanowitz was one of the best decisions made.

    Season 1 is what hooked me, but the show has become progressively better each week it seems.

    Even Jean Ralphio is starting to grow on me as a character. He's a big enough douche to the point where it's really funny to me now.

    I agree with this 100%. His character was unbearable.

    Unfortunately, Cara, I read somewhere that he isn't gone for good and they have plans of him coming back down the road. I hope that doesn't come to fruition.

    Nah, I don't think anymore than any other show. Most good comedy shows are awkward right out the gate. I mean, look at the first half of the first season of the Office, Arrested Development, etc.

    I didn't have a problem with Mark Brandanowitz, but I felt they didn't need his character. He was kind of boring. A bit too normal, compared to everyone else.
    (Very) nice to look at, but not much going on, storywise.

    I didn't understand why HIS character was the one that got women. That part of the story line seemed the least believable.

    Well they had Mark Brandanowitz there to establish a love interest with Leslie that was just unbelievable. He fell really flat as a character. Then they tried to work in a potential love triangle with Anne/Mark/Leslie that also didn't seem to have any momentum in terms of plot development. In season 2 you see the show start to become more of an ensemble cast, and the little quirks of everyone start to come out (like making fun of Jerry, etc). It's also obvious that they don't really know what to do with Anne Perkins, but they need her to play as Leslie's double (the Ethel to Leslie's Lucy, I guess)....so they've conveniently set her up with a part time job at the government? Silly.

    I think Ann Perkins is being set up (again) as Rob Lowe's love interest. I also see that being used as a way to give Leslie and Ben an excuse to date without getting fired.

    Donna is underrated.

    I am honestly trying to think of a character I don't like. I can't think of one.

    Watched all the episodes on SideReel during most of my lunch / dinner / whatever breaks over the past three weeks and I really do like this show quite a bit.

    quality of the show is directly proportional to the depth of April's character.
    Aubrey Plaza fucking rules.

    The turkey burger challenge episode where Chris and Ron took Andy and April shopping was fucking priceless. Chris limiting the number of toys Andy could buy while Ron let April buy as many crow figures as she wanted. Awesome.

    I feel like April and Andy should have a kid in a few seasons. In the sense that I don't want either of them ever to "grow up" and seeing April eat like bucketloads of pretzels or somethings and nothing else while she is pregnant while Leslie freaks the fuck out and throws her a baby shower and tries to hover-mother their child and shit would just be comedic gold.
