Wonder who the sponsor is?

I've been looking forward to this series since I first heard about it. The Geico commercials are a scream, so it's not surprising that someone pitched it to Hollywood. When it went into production I hoped that they wouldn't screw it up with asinine writing - that would be so easy to do!

I've seen the previews now (there are four of them), and this is going to be a hoot! They hired the same guy to write the scripts who wrote the commercials, for starters. The writing is brilliant and quite witty. The casting looks great, too, especially the snarky "Nick" character, who refuses to assimilate and who also happens to be smarter than anyone around him.

I can hardly wait to see the premiere, which is on Tuesday night, October 2nd.
