Just watched the first episode. Brilliant. Lots of funny moments, most of which SMBH already mentioned, but I was really tickled by the gear info graphics coming up during the funeral.

I think my favourite thing in episode 1 was how much the kid playing the fake son seemed to be enjoying himself.

That was another amazing episode, and yeah, I have a feeling that Jon's marriage won't last much longer, if it isn't already over.

I loved how much other people would repeat Hue's full name. It's not as glorious as Mighty Joe Jon, the Black Blonde, which can't be topped, but still...

Same. Wish this was easier to get hold of.

Yeah, I'm having the same problem.  Saying "Access Denied".

I forgot to comment on this but I did enjoy it a lot, however the first ten minutes or so were a bit by the numbers, it was the first time I've ever watched an episode and wasn't laughing a great deal from the get go. As soon as the incredibly predictable reveal that his son hadn't been playing football came along it was all great and Jon gatecrashing the live megic show was lovely stuff, as was Steve's return right at the end, but yeah, it's the first time that I think I've ever had a minor issue with the series.

t's the first time that I think I've ever had a minor issue with the series.

I've not seen the third episode, but in all honesty, I had the same twinge of doubt as you whilst watching episode two. There was a fair whack of decent stuff but I really only enjoyed about half of it. I have a niggling skepticism about this being a subpar season as I rewatched Neon Joe recently and was reminded of how underwhelming that whole thing was...

Episode 4 on Myspleen.

Also, the show has been moved to Mondays, presumably to make a comedy block at TruTV with Those Who Can't, that airs on the same night.

I've felt this season has been pretty disappointing up until episode four. Just treading water, repeating itself, not ramping things up and going down crazy directions like classic Glaser stuff.

Episode 4 is a real return to form, though!



Spoilers:


Steve's poem. Fucking hell.

He'll taste his own fresh penile meat until digested.
Bowels moved.
Then, shaped as knife, and frozen good, with bile, foul, offensive shiv
his heart I'll pierce.
He'll cease to live.


Followed by his extended matter of fact description.

Fucking hilarious.

I loved the fourth episode a great deal too, it was packed from start to finish with some beautiful moments (including a lovely "Oh I know" callback") and like you say Steve's poem was amazing stuff, and I really liked Jon's as well. My only disappointment is that they haven't actually published the "100 Perfect Golf Analogies For Life" book, if they did I'd buy it in an instant.

There's an extended version of the poem scene on the Facebook page for the show. Jon actually bought the book and the $1,600 Japanese pen as a gift to Steve because of the loss of his dad's knife ("The pen is mightier than the sword"). Unfortunately, they haven't added the chyrons that would have paced the mentions.

Watched the first three eps of series 2 last night and found it delightful. Can not get on board with thinking it's in some way diminished!

I'm currently watching episode 5, "Basketball." I've just heard that Jon ran the New York Marathon.

I loved that episode to pieces, and any concerns that this season won't be as good as the first have now been eradicated, the ending was especially a thing of beauty.

I've got the new episode from MySpleen. It was an interesting change of direction.

Also, it's quite shocking to see the proper credits at the beginning two weeks in a row. In almost every episode after the pilot, either Steve's face was blacked out as a punishment or we had the replacement 'Spurt next to Jon in a bald wig.

I liked it a lot, wasn't as packed with laughs as some of the other episodes but they had fun with the concept and Karl's inclusion was top top stuff.

I know what you mean about the credits too, I like them but do strangely miss the bald wig one.

Definitely enjoyed the last two ("Basketball" and "Road Trip") much more than anything else in this season.

Karl in the latest one was absolutely fantastic. And Jon's obsession with his son being the "Anti-Gear" was a perfect piece of Glaser nonsense. I love how as soon as he said it, he knew exactly what he meant by it, even though he'd just made it up and it was unbelievably stupid.
