Is anyone watching this? It's a very trope-y show, but that doesn't matter because it's very likeable and gently amusing.

I've found few belly laughs but plenty of warm chuckles. A very good cast and well written.

This was the surprise Emmy sweeper this year.

Surprisingly, it's produced by the team behind Harley Quinn (which has returned for a third season today).

I liked the first episode

Thought the 2nd was pretty bad and the acting from some is a bit janky.

Sitcoms can take 6 episodes to find their tone so i'll probably give it a few more episodes but i was underwhelmed vs the praise it was getting

A lot of the commentary I have seen around it has been around how "nice" it is, and linking it with Ted Lasso and trying to make a trend out of it.

The only show that really gets that 'nice' thing right is Bob's Burgers-adjacent animated sitcom the Great North.  Everyone's polite and rarely raises their voice, but it's the source of the humour and that humour is the backbone of the show.  It doesn't seem to be designed for the express purpose of 'being nice'.
