    Best line of the night:
    “Twenty years ago you had no power but you had balls. Now look at you.” Selina: “Yeah, now I’ve got a dick and balls.”

    I hope the feud between Selena and FLOTUS becomes a running gag.

    I also like her line to the preacher at the very end of the receiving line who likes to bake: "Christ has risen".

    I need to watch this tonight.

    A guy on my Twitter feed proclaimed this show to be the best comedy on TV right now.

    It's pretty darn funny, but I can see how it's not for everyone. The jokes come pretty fast. Definitely give it a watch.

    I wouldn't agree with that statement, but it is pretty funny. I don't consider it laugh out loud funny though.

    I like it. Good, not great.

    It strikes me as being written by a talented Aaron Sorkin fan who hasn't yet figured out that he's not Aaron Sorkin.

    I cringed when Tony Hale's character said "I'm Binging it". Who says that? The White House uses Bing??? I hope not...

    I agree with Ereth who agrees with Rob.
    Well said, Rob.
    Yet, I still am in love with the show.
    It is definitely a show that deserves two viewings because the dialogue is snappy.
    Since the first week, I have seen some reviews which tear it apart. This I do not understand. Maybe it is not the best show ever to be aired, but it is certainly (this far, 3 eps in) better than most of the lame television that is on now. Plus I find it very funny (I understand humor is objective.) If it could just stay at the level of quality is at right now, I would be most pleased.

    HBO picked it up for a second season (along with Girls)...someone must like it!

    I am using it as a tide-me-over until June 24.

    Quotes:

    Jonah: Ma'am, you need to kill the dog. Not literally, but if it comes to that, then yeah. You gotta kill that dog.

    Selina: Tell her I'm canceling the lunch with Catherine that was supposed to prove there's nothing more important than Catherine because something more important than Catherine has come up.

    Gary: FYI, the President is not calling.
    Selina: FYI, Gary, no s**t.

    Yeah, I think last night's new episode was S02E02. So, somehow this year old thread is about an episode that hasn't been aired yet.

    It is really too bad there is no way to go back and edit thread titles IMO.
