The first 15 minutes were rather bland, but seeing as it has to set up the entire series its not too bad, and the episode picks up in the last quarter.Amy Poehler's character seems very akin to Steve Carell's Michael Scott, which is understandable coming from the same writers, however I hope the character develops in a different way as it would be very difficult for the character to remain funny when your always comparing her to her predecessor.
Whilst this episode didn't pull many laughs from me, I can certainly see potential for this to get off the ground, and much like the office I think it will take a few episodes to get into the swing of things.
If it can create half the comedy the office does it will be a success.

I actually enjoyed it. Yeah some parts were a bit dry but I think there's some hope in there. Love Amy Poehler. :D
