foul words are foul

I am not a nerd nor a saint in the religious world but I don't believe using God's name in vain is needed on any TV show open to the general population. I won't tune in to see it again nor use the sponsor's products until the brazen swearing is calmed down.

Awesome Sitcom from Scrubs' Creator

My interest in Ground Floor was piqued by two things: that its by the creator of Scrubs, Bill Lawrence, and that it stars two of the cast from Pitch Perfect, Skylar Astin and Alexis Knapp. The show starts off feeling a bit try-hardish but once you've settled into the sense of humour and the almost-immediately likeable characters, Ground Floor will keep you laughing the whole way. There are frequent jokes regarding sexual issues, but no more than your average sitcom, and less so than popular ones like How I Met Your Mother and The Big Bang Theory. In saying that it is only 3 episodes in so it could escalate. Language isn't shocking regarding air time but it is worth mentioning that McGinley's character does use the S-word in both the second and third episodes. Overall, i would definitely recommend Ground Floor as a light-hearted comedy that keeps you laughing, provided you don't try and take it seriously; it doesn't take itself seriously after all, so why should we? Jester's Rating: 8/10
