The premise here is that Jeff Murdoch and Kirk Mason star in a sitcom as nerdy Chicago roommates Jeff Murdoch and Kirk Mason, who get a new house guest each week by listing themselves with couchsurfing.com. On opening night, Rachel Farmer and Craig Tommey played a chicken-fried couple from Arkansas who charmed Jeff (at least until the Klan robes showed up) while leaving Kirk as odd man out. The dynamic of an old friendship tested by new acquaintances has rich comic potential, but not all of it was realized. An ad for Fat Chat, a fictitious website where overweight teens try to hook up, was pointlessly cruel. --Kerry Reid
