I didn't watch any of the web series that inspired the show, back when it starred Jenny McCarthy, Leah Remini and Chelsea Handler, but Angel tells me it was much more subversive in its web form, probably because it was actually based on viewer story submissions. Here, we have a team of writers (and director Beth McCarthy-Miller, who I love) trying to kowtow to ABC's 8 PM expectations, and I'm sorry to say it really shows. I got bullied by my lady friends into watching Samantha Who? right after it, and, while I know the show has its fans, when I'm laughing more at Samantha Who? than I am at what is supposed to be this refreshingly rebellious look at the female experience, your show has failed.
And while we're talking about it -- why was Megan Mullally dressed like Joan Jett lite in every scene? And why can't that girl catch a break, TV hit-wise? It's so weird.
