Hi everybody! I personally think this is far from being a good tv show. I personally think this is ridiculous, is like a twisted (but not in a good way) version of Drop Dead Diva, lots of similarities. Kimmi’s friends are terrible, they’re pathetic. I was expecting something better, such a shame I did not get what I expected.

I saw her appeared in TV interviews here in Australia after the success of Pitch Perfect and she told the same old blonde joke on both shows. Funny every time you hear it in pubs after a few drinks with mates. But on national TV from a “professional” comedienne, not. funny. at. all.

This is actually a brilliant show. Rebel Wilson has so much talent and we’ve just scraped the surface with Boubier’s character. The format of each episode, posing a challenge to Wilson’s character and watching her overcome and grow, combines refreshing comedy and a heart-warming voulnerability that captivates. Rebel Wilson is not only proving her depth as a comedian but also as an actress.

In recent comedy there has been a gap that no one has capitalized on because it takes a special kind of talent to do so, the central character playing other characters. Wilson does this brilliantly with the Russian inspired persona in the second episode. This has been a winning recipie for Martin Lawrence, Eddie Murphy, and even Raven Simone. I sure hope to see more of Wilson exploring this very fun aspect of her talent, she could be a modern day Carol Burnett.

I absolutely love this show before. I loved the plot and I was very entertained. I don’t see what people are complaining about.

One of the worst shows to come on ABC in many years. Who the hell is this fat cow anyway? Certainly not funny, pathetic is more like it…

As an aussie I can tell you that she was never funny here so she’s deff not funny here! She is playing the same old jokes from 10 years ago when she was in fat pizza and it was a flop. I don’t see why americas are so amazed with her ‘sense of humor’

I am all for equality, the way to do that is not “Let’s all laugh at the fat girl for being fat” show. Wouldn’t it be nice if we could just have people be people and not have to define them solely by their size?
This show has failure written all over it.

I just loved the show and all the characters. The English guy is straight out of the Drone’s club and since he can have any beautiful girl he wants on either side of the Atlantic and has already had thousands of them, this girl is like a little sister or a the neighbor kid, someone to have fun with, someone who is real, and so are her friends. So what if she has a crush on him. He know this and is used to dealing with it. Every single female he ever meets does. But he know she also just likes him and she is always sincere and she is not on the make. A valuable and rare thing.

I don’t agree at all with these critics (whom I’ve never even heard of before). The show was fantastic and funny and held my interest throughout. Great show! It will do well.

The problem with this show is it is the “fat” girl stereotype vs the usual thin counterpart- not necessary! Rebel Wilson is amazing and lovely. She’s got so much spunk and they downplayed that spunk so she could be the nice, clueless, easy to run over fat girl. She is not her weight and I wish they would stop writing it like she is. She’s amazing in interviews- where was that in the show? There was no spark with the side characters, either. It felt like everyone was just running lines. The competitor left me feeling confused- was she really saying those nice compliments or was she just being two-faced? That woman can’t act as I can’t really gauge what she’s really conveying. I did like Kevin Bishop as at least he’s not acting like the stereotype male character.
I really don’t see this show lasting too long and I had show high hopes.

You’re off there on your comments… it’s not the typical skinny/fat girl competition. It is different in the way that the guy is interested in the larger woman. He likes her. He dislikes the attitude of the skinny woman. In the typical skinny/fat girl, the guy would be oblivious to how the skinny one treats the other one. In this one he is not. He sees it and makes faces. It’s a great show. Very funny. It will be a hit.

I enjoyed it too, but it felt a bit forced at times. I love Rebel, love, love her! I know its going to get better. I did spend the whole time focused on the fact that her American accent was fake, but had I never seen her before, wouldn’t have noticed.

Disagree with the reviews! I liked the show and think it has potential…I like the relationship between Kimmie and Richard – he’s the hot, successful, rich, British dude, but he’s goofy with Kimmie and seems like a good friend to her…think that is different from most shows out there! It’s my favorite new show of the season (vs Michael J Fox, Crazy Ones, Goldbergs, Mom, and Brooklyn 99)

I agree with Heather! I think that this show fills the void left when Ugly Betty ended. I love that there isn’t a laugh track. Also, people don’t always win, but when there are wins… They feel damn good.
