  • That was some gorgeous cinematography for a TV sitcom.
  • And it was a setup for special effects later on!
  • Is Ted Danson named Michael as a hat-tip to the archangel? Wouldn’t Gabriel have been a better fit for the whole recording merits and demerits bit?
  • The comic timing here was fabulous.
  • This is the second sitcom I’ve been watching recently which has a completely silent character as a gag. (Crazy Ex Girlfriend being the first.)
  • Definitely a series to continue with.
