    Definitely yes! This quirky drama adds just the right touch of drama with a dash of comedy. It would be better if the professor believed in God. Also, please cut out the unessary background music and noise that hinders greatly being able to discern the dialog.

    Love this show. Give it a chance to develop even further. Great cast. Lead actor, Eric McCormack, is brilliant in his portrayal of a person living with paranoid schizophrenia. What a superb actor! I believe this show will change public perception of mental illness as much as “Will and Grace” did of homosexuality. MAYBE add more writers. The present ones are good, but an added
    variety of thought processes could help lessen their creative burden and keep the show fresh and edgy ( don’t get me wrong –I love you guys!)

    I love this show actually has some good actors even my husband likes it. Please renew there is lots more junk on TV that could be trashed. You might consider a better time slot like Wednesday night nothing worth watching for the most part. Tuesday you’re up against NCIS, Person of Interest tough to draw viewers Wednesday would be perfect.

    Renew, renew, renew…this show is interesting, relevant and has great characters and actors. With mental health as important an issue as it has been for years …especially relevant since the 80’s…what an opportunity this show has to deal with a topic of importance to every human.
    Medicine is not always the solution. Check out and make the show even more relevant.

    Good show but needs new writers last season’s reminder of shows from the 60′ s script from earlier shows was much better.
