From tariel22 :How Michael got on the show

Thoughts and spoilers for ep#1 behind the cut



This episode was shot close on a year and a half ago so it will be interesting to contrast it with next week's ep (shot 8 weeks ago). Since Michael is going to be a regular cast member, his increase in screen time probably means a decrease for someone else? I'm guessing that will be the Master in Disguise character. Good actor, but the role was a little close to being Dwight for my taste.

The humour is gentler than I expected, not necessarily a bad thing. Oz is a father figure, nurturing Cameron. The tough safe cracker is a nice girl at heart; Cash, the prankster, just wants a buddy.

I hope the cake lady (Canadian character actor Jennifer Irwin) sticks around. My biggest laugh was her popping up at Cameron's elbow.

I loved seeing Michael. Pretty much his entire scene had been previewed so the element of surprise was missing - excited for brand new stuff next week! I like that Dutch, despite the cliches of his appearance, is actually a sweet guy and a caring boyfriend. It's a nice change from Michael's previous "jerk" roles like Kip and lets him play a little closer to home.

What did everyone think?

I liked it. It wasn't awesome, but it has potential. I'll watch more.

I still say it needs more Dutch. Do we know how many eps he's doing?

Fox ordered a test run of 7 episodes and Michael is in all of them! Originally, he was just supposed to have that tiny cameo in the pilot but critics liked him so much, they made him a regular!
