Melissa & Joey

  1. From the Wiki:

    Melissa & Joey is an ABC Family original television series starring Melissa Joan Hart and Joey Lawrence. In January 2010, ABC Family ordered 10 episodes for the show's first season, which premiered on August 17, 2010.

    Mel is a local politician from a political family. When a family scandal leaves her niece, Lennox, and nephew, Ryder, without their parents, Mel takes them in. Meanwhile, Joe is a former commodities trader--left bankrupt after a Ponzi scheme--who is searching for a job.[1] So when Mel finds it hard to handle an instant family and her own life, she hires Joe to become the family's new male nanny, or "manny".

  2. Anybody watch? First impressions?


    Doesn't look too bad. I'll give it some time and see how it plays out.
     
  3. I watched the premiere & thought it was okay. With so many sitcoms out there you can almost guess what's gonna happen next though.
     
  4. I saw it. I would have liked the it better if they would have made it a sitcom from the movie they did together because they do have good chemistry.
     
  5. It seems like "Who's the Boss?" to me.
     
  6. i loved it. i thought it was funny and cute. can't wait to see the next episode.
    and yes, modern day Who's the Boss, IMO. which i loved that show too!
     
  7. In one of the critic reviews, I saw a mention of it being a throwback to the 80s & 90s era of sitcoms which is fine, and probably a good comparison. Yes, the WTB? elements are there.

    I really hope they don't do the whole Sam & Diane, Sam & Rebecca, Tony & Angela, Harry & Christine (Night Court), Maxwell & Fran bit though. That gets tiring.
     
  8. Of course they will I believe that is the whole point.
     
  9. The whole time I watched this show, I just kept noticing that Melissa Joan Hart couldn't walk in high heels. Petty, I know, but it drove me up the wall!
     
  10. She is a bit clunky. Like she's on stilts and her legs are stiff from the hip to the toe.
     
  11. i saw the pilot of this. it looked cute.
     
  12. Is anybody still watching this? I totally forgot about this show until I started seeing commercials for the summer premiere tonight. I have the reruns on in the background right now.
     
  13. I have never heard of this show. Odd.
     
  14. *~*I'm watching the marathon right now, it's not too bad. I'll probably keep watching since nothing comes on Wednesday nights.*~*
     
  15. I've got it on too. They're running last season as a catch-up/primer for the new season starting tonight.

    It's OK. Better than most of the other new shows. At least it isn't another reality farce.
