Imaginary Anticipation: If you love Jenna Elfman...

Why do people keep hiring Jenna Elfman?

I'm not kidding. Even once you get around the Aggressive Scientologist bit, she's also this known quantity for failure--since after Dharma & Greg she's had like a dozen different stab at things that have all failed. You'd think network execs would be tired of seeing her name on top of show proposals.

After last night's preview, I'll say I liked the smart mouth puppet (Mary), but Jenna Elfman is pretty much a deal killer for me, always. I totally agree with Kromm above. Wish they had used a different actress.

Edited by Ms Lark. Reason: I just discovered Rachael Dratch is the voice of Mary. Explains why I like her!

Terrible show. And what was up with the background noise and sound? It sounded like a subway running in the background.

Meh, that was awful. Seems like yet another "business woman needs to be fixed through the power of family and kids" type of deal.  The main characters had no chemistry as a couple, why am I supposed to root for these bland people in a bland romantic situation? The guy and his kids are straight up unlikable. They were obnoxious and also bland. The only character I did like was the imaginary friend, but she doesn't really seem necessary to the show besides being a gimmick.

Thank god it's going to be in a timeslot that I don't usually watch.

I like Jenna Elfman. I think she's gorgeous and adorable. This show is awful. Her love interest is boring. The kids, especially the older boy are hideously annoying. The Mary thing is ugly and not funny. That thing eagerly and sneakily watching Jenna make love, eeeeeuuuuuuuwwwwww! Heavy drinking is never funny. Bad show! No biscuit.

I created an episode thread for the pilot. There are lots of great possibilities, but they all involve getting rid of the family.

I try not judge anyone on their lifestyle and will generally watch anyone in a movie or show regardless of their religion, politics, or whatever, but I draw the line at Scientology.  And I've read articles by former Scientologists who have interacted with her and it is one ugly picture.  Saw her in the audience of Dancing with the Stars last night to pimp her new show.  I hope the imaginary friend doesn't become suppressive or Elfman will have to disconnect from her.  Which would end the show.  Which might be a good thing.

Pretty sure the show wilbe cancelled before that would be a possibility. The only good thing about Jenna is her brother in law.

The ads for this looked dreadful so the only thing I have to add is I wish they called it ImagiMary.

It really wasn't a bad concept at all. Let's face it, as adults when we had a pretty crazy life as was shown in the various flashbacks with Jenna's character. It wasn't too surprising that Mary appeared after everything, but sadly you had a cast that just didn't gel right together. The kids were cliches and the writers didn't get them at all. I think if they would put more thought in the characters, and more showing of the main character's life growing up instead of the first 8 minutes of the pilot over the course of the series. I think it would have came off better.
