    I enjoyed this far, far more than I anticipated. The script on this worked.. reminded me a lot of everything I liked about "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind".. I'm in.

    I watched it. It was decent, a bit like watching a train wreck watching his descent.

    I'm giving it a go. You can't go wrong with that cast: Frank Loggia, Judy Greer, Catherine Keener. Serious players all.

    In some ways this show reminds me of older Showtime series, but it has been pretty good so far.. surprisingly dark. But, I'm enjoying it quite a bit ;)

    Frank Loggia? WTF? Frank LANGELLA. A senior moment. And not even getting Loggia's first name right. Sigh.

    Boy this show is dark. The final scene of the gas meter and house full of gas, they wouldn't, would they?

    Although on mythbusters they have proved several times that a house full of a flammable gas won't go up on its own, you need a certain percentage of air/oxygen. So I hope the writers know this.

    Yeah this show grows on you, really different quality, offbeat direction, and meaningful. Please don't 'blaze one up' though.

    I do like it and Jim Carrey is so good in it.

    This Sunday's episode was great too. The kid who plays his son is a good actor.

    Under the happy Mr. Pickles facade, every show has this impending sense of foreboding waiting for Mr, Pickles to snap.

    Another good episode! Show is so dark! Poor Tara Lipinski. I always wondered if that was possible figure skating.
