I took my daughter and a couple of her friends skating for her birthday. I discovered that roller skating is kinda like riding a bike in that you never forget how to do it. Thirty minutes on the floor and I was skating like a pro again, even though it's been at least 16 years since I've done it.
There was a place on the Knoxville strip called Suds and Buds I believe. It was a combination laundry and bar. Right in the heart of the University of Tennessee campus. It did not stay open long. I could never figure that out. maybe mismanagement? It always seemed like a brilliant idea.

I had to turn it off before it ruined Jason Segel for me.
I've seen about a dozen episodes... it's extremely hit or miss, mostly miss. It can either cause me to chuckle a handful of times per 22 minute episode, or make me hate my very existence.
For instance, the pilot is one of the most excruciating things I've ever seen. But I've seen other, later episodes that were just fine... not bad, not exceptional, but enjoyable enough for what it is.
But again, I find most sitcoms of today damn near unbearable. So many shows doing the same type of comedy and using similar themes. Just a serious lack of originality on tv in the comedy department, nowadays.
I think that I have seen every episode up until a couple of weeks ago. (I'm behind in my DVR.)
My favorite episode is The Pineapple Incident. (Season One, Episode Ten.) If you are not entertained as Drunk Ted ("Vomit-free since '93) attempts to recreate the previous night, you clearly have lost the ability to feel joy.
