Is Unhitched Worth Watching?

Posted by Veronica Santiago Categories: Comedy, FOX, Editorial, Video,

UnhitchedThey say you really shouldn’t judge a book by it’s cover.  But you know, in some cases, that time-saving strategy can really tell you a lot.

Case in point:  FOX’s new comedy .  The show (debuting this weekend) almost lured me in with names like Rashida Jones, Craig Bierko and the Farrelly brothers.  But then I saw some teasers.  And now I’m convinced a few seconds has revealed quite enough.  (You can view those clips, after the jump.)

I knew a show that had Bobby and Peter Farrelly (There’s Something About Mary) on board as executive producers could possibly be over the top, but I thought at the very minimum the ‘comedy’ would be funny.  It isn’t.  Both the writing and production feel cheap and Bierko - who I’ve loved in other projects - sticks out like an overacting sore thumb.  Thankfully, (The Office) comes off well in the straight girl role.

Those who do find the following snippets amusing can watch their first full episode this Sunday @ 9:30 on FOX.
