The Wiig-Rogen casting was odd. We've seen Walter and Tambor made up to look younger for flashbacks so many times already. At least Wiig acted and sounded like Lucille. I don't know WTF Rogen was doing.

I agree on Wiig/Rogen. I like both of them but this is stunt casting, pure and simple.

I would have much rather seen Tambor in a bad wig.

What he was doing was not acting. He might have been better off playing Tobias.

I just rewatched the first episode, after watching the entire series. I have to say, I'm laughing at it more...

I think what Rogen is doing is called, "I'm collecting a paycheck and this show is irreverent, so it doesn't matter that I'm hamming it up to a ridiculous level."

I just wonder if Rogen and Whig just wanted to be part of the show. Maybe they are friends with some of the cast and got the gig because of it. It's one of those pop culture shows that is kind of "cool" to be part of. Actors like that sort of thing. Think of all the guests that appeared on 30 Rock over the years.

They've also had a big part of the cast of Workaholics and Outsourced.

Of course, it makes them "cool".

Wiig is likely friends with Arnet because he's married to Amy Pohler who was on SNL with Wiig.

I think Wiig is awesome as young Lucille.

Rogen not so much. And I usually like Rogen.

I thought it was a hoot! The Showstealer watermark was perfect, and I spent too much time looking at backgrounds and such.

I enjoyed both Wiig and Rogen. It was a little nod to the fact that there are going to be some fun and unexpected cameos. I'm looking forward to the rest!

It's very weird to me. To me Wiig looks and sounds like Lucille, and yet at the same time they have Rogen who doesn't look and doesn't sound like George.

Just strange.
