    Entertainment Weekly actually gave it a pretty good review.

    I contemplated going back, but then I let that go.

    Hope it does get better for those who continue to watch.

    I might record E02, just for kicks. Oh, gack! I hate it when I waffle.

    This sounds promising. Hopefully the major changes were for the better.

    It's literally impossible to be for the worse. :D

    I only got one good laugh out of the second episode, but I'll probably keep watching anyway.

    Havne't watched the second episode yet, but I enjoyed the first.

    As for Nat Faxon, I like him - liked him in Ben and Kate too.

    For some reason, he always reminds me of Dennis Dugan who played Richie Brockleman on the Rockford Files.

    I think I might have enjoyed the first episode more. I'll keep watching the show. Maybe it will get better. :cool:

    I just watched Episode 2 and I did not see much that was any better than the pilot. I'm currently reading Judy Greer's book and it's much more entertaining than this show.

    I also watched the first two episodes of You're The Worst and I agree - it was a much better show.

    I liked the second episode much better and thought it was really funny.

    I liked Married, You're the Worst, AND Welcome to Sweden. I can see potential for boom or bust in all three.

    Certainly did not get a "dads" vibe. I'm sticking with all 3.

    As for the promos for the new Kelsey Grammar show, that looks really bad. I'm not even going to record it and give it a chance. They even played the laugh track before a joke was made!

    I quit watching the Sweden show like 10 minutes into the second episode. Call me a lazy American, or whatever, but I have zero interest in watching a show with subtitles. Probably a big reason I gave up on Lillyhammer on Netflix too. I have so much stuff in my backlog. I don't mind dumping a show for something as small as subtitles. :)

    I thought the second episode of You're the Worst was pretty good. Definitely keeping up with that show. Second episode of Married was worse than the first in my opinion.

    I'm not sure if I'll give "Married" a shot. I'm a big Judy Greer fan - I even watch those horrible Sprint commercials because of her. But at some point I have to draw the line.

    I watched Married E02 and agree that it's not as bad so I'm hanging in for now.

    Still watching 'You're the Worst' because it's intriguing me a bit. Was that woman in the book store the Flo character woman from Progressive? I've never seen this actor without her Flo get up but I could totally see it in her eyes and mouth. Or, I could be wrong. :D

    I'm checking out the new Kelsey Grammer/Martin Lawrence show. We'll see how that one goes.

    I've watched the first two eps of both Married and You're the Worst. I'm in on both shows. I love having 30-minute sitcoms to watch since most of the stuff I record are 60-minute programs, but I don't always have time for those, so the 30-minute stuff seems to always get watched first.

    Agreed.

    I do like You're the Worst better than Married, but keeping them both.

    I've watched the first two of Sweden and not feeling it so far. Might give it one or two more.

    Gave up on Married, keeping watching Satisfaction for now.

    My pilot|premiere auto recording wishlist I made in the past year or so has really been helpful to find these new shows.

    The latest episode of Married, Ep 05 "The Playdate" was actually very funny and the best of the series so far, IMO. Maybe it's finally starting to gain some steam.

    it is back for a second season. Have to say - the trailers are luring me in.
    But I simply can not start a series in the second season without seeing at least the first two eps of the first season. The posts here sure seem 50/50 hate/like.
    Any reason to think it got better in the second season?

    It has a lot of potential. I was hoping they would make Faxon and his writing partner Jim Rash take over the show but that did not happen. Also I am not hopeful that they made Jenny Slate a recurring character knocking her down from series regular. I will give it a couple episodes and see what happens but "You're the Worst" is a better show.
