    don't think this is a strong enough idea for a sitcom.

    Never thought the show title Fruit Stand would be about computer repairs? Where did that come from? and how are you going to make it funny and entertaining as a show?

    Where is the humor in this. It got boring because the only change was dialogue. Not for me. Sorry.

    I didn't really find this amusing; and I really enjoyed the comedy of 'The IT Crowd' but I just found this to be condescending and necessarily cruel. I think it was too fast paced to support even a 22-minute vehicle, and I think the crowd that it's aiming for wouldn't really enjoy the characters you're presenting. They may feel those things and would relish saying them, but I don't think they would enjoy watching all of it.

    It's a good try, but I don't really feel attached to the characters or would care to know their opinion. It may be hard to express or display products if negative tones like this are common towards the major equipment retailers. I'm just left puzzled, but I respect the effort.
