Episodes - Season 2 thread

I gave up waiting for someone to start a thread and figured I would do it myself!

I love this show. Everyone in it is perfect. It is wickedly funny. Where's the love for it on TCF? am I the only one watching?

I watched it a while back when it aired elsewhere.

I do love the chemistry between, well, everybody...but Sean and Beverly in particular. They are SO perfect as a long-married couple, both before and after the break-up. Their relationship is so great it's heartbreaking to see them separate, and yet plausible at the same time. Great acting + great writing = win.

It's a really good show. Season 2 is even better than season 1. However, it's hard to discuss here since many of us have already seen all of season 2 either on torrents or the BBC iPlayer.

I had no idea season 2 was already available. I love this show so much, I don't think I will wait for 1 episode per week then.

Usually, I will watch each week if there is a robust TCF discussion. Clearly, that is not the case!

It's a co-production with a British network, which just finished airing the season a couple of weeks ago.

Heck, I'm going to download the rest of the season then and watch it all at once this weekend. This Friday night is going to rock!

I just started this season and am loving the show. Wish I had tuned in earlier. I thought this current one was only season 2. Perhaps I'm more confused than I thought I was.

Speaking of Matt and his 'Friends', I tried watching (for the second time) Lisa Kudrow's show and I just cannot get into her character. I mostly went back this season for the guest stars (There is nothing Meryl Streep does that I don't love), but Lisa's character is just way too - I don't know what - for me.

Everyone in this thread is talking about season 2. Some of us got the show off the internet because it aired in the UK before it came to the US. If you were a dirty pirate, you could have finished watching season 2 a couple weeks ago like me.

And then it gets cancelled because nobody is watching the channel, and the ratings drop.

I kind of think this season is dragging a little bit.
But - still enjoying it.

On the other hand the Lisa Kudrow show is more interesting for some reason this season.

Lisa's character comes off as smarmy in "Web Therapy", and the improv dialogue comes across as somewhat halting during some actors attempts at cleverness. But I like this show as well. It's interesting to pay attention to the file names on her desktop when Fiona is Skpe-ing with various characters. I also like the bloopers during the end credits.

It would be nice to get a cross-character appearance with Matt LeBlanc.

OMG...YCOMT!

I was in the process of sitting down at the time and missed my chair from shock and laughter.

Torrents downloading right now. I wonder if I will be able to wait until Friday to watch the rest of the season.

And then he has to (temporarily) abandon the pen rather than admit what it means.

I have stayed out of this thread because I have seen the entire season. I will just say that it's a fantastic show. Loved the entire season!

Loved this season, especially Matt calling all of his former cast mates and who he ended up getting in the end It's great that Matt LeBlanc can make fun of himself.

Really really liked this episode. I am going to show restraint and watch this show as it is shown on Showtime.
(try saying that 10timesfast)

It doesn't matter. They will just replace it with a show about a talking dog.

No, it will get canceled because the show about the talking dog that's on opposite it clobbers it in the ratings.

Pay attention!
