It felt like I was watching "Mad Men - Lite."

I think it has a lot of potential -- but there needs to be more depth. As a premiere, I realize they're trying to give a lot in a short amount of time, but I feel like it was rushed in the wrong spots and too hasty in others. The Gay Agenda has it's place but could have been saved for at least the third episode; Bunny Maureen seems very cliche; Hef's narration is cute -- but not interesting. Eddie as Nick is trying desperately to be like Jon Hamm/Don Draper -- but his character isn't nearly compelling enough.

I will watch again to see if it gets better, but my hopes aren't very high.

A complete joke. NOTHING like the real Playboy club. I know because I dated John Dante who ran ALL the clubs. They couldn't even get the "Playboy " mansion set right! and Bunnies weren't allowed to just drop everything and go "dance". they would have been fired! What an embarassement to Hef...a really wonderful man. And story wise"?? A guy is killed and police don't investigate? Please.And the gay plot? What's with that?? not to mention your lead actress Amber Heard is a lesbian. Talk about suspending belief in that sexual attraction with cibrian who is a terrible actor... those who loved the clubs, this was an embarassement. DOA

REALLY? This is probably the lamest, most unnecessary show on the planet. Boring, silly, meaningless. Just a waste of time. Won't watch it again (sorry, Eddie, because you are divine...)

I DVR'ed this last night because my 10:00 is reserved for Castle. Because I was interested in the idea, I watched it as soon as Castle ended. I have to agree that the gay meeting was a little out of place and felt contrived. I think it may have fit better later on in the season once we knew Nick a little bit better. It kind of felt like the producers stuck a whole bunch of plotlines in a hat and picked out a bunch of them for the series. The whole mob thing was also a little much. Is it really plausible that the head of a mob family can be the pillar that Nick described, especially when the pillar had a totally different name? Wouldn't people wonder why both of these guys look exactly the same? Is one a recluse? It was really strange. I'm pretty sure that people knew what Capone or Lucky Luciano looked like, so they should know what fictional Bruno Bianchi looks like. Also, isn't it a little strange that Nick was involved with "the family"?

I wanted to love it before I saw it but it was slow moving and a bit boring.
I hope it will keep improving.

I was very disappointed with the show. It lacked excitment and intrigue and I was bored throughout the whole show. I love Jenna Dewan-Tatum and some of the other girls but overall it just wasn't what I had expected.

Loved the show. I think NBC has winner.

I enjoyed the show. Having worked as a bunny in Cincinnati in the 60's I couldn't help but draw comparisons. There were very strict rules in the club, and to my knowledge none of these types of things went on. Nonetheless, I will be watching this show every week!

I really enjoyed it and look forward to the season. It was fun sexy & a pinch of mystery! I can see mad men comparisons but only b/c the time period or sets & costumes. Please let The Playboy Club make it thru the season.
