    I was trying to think of the show that it most reminded me of to describe it to others. I'm going with Mind of a Married Man, anyone else have one that has the same feel as Starved that hasn't been mentioned?

    Swirl, when I was trying to describe Starved to a buddy of mine last week I said it was like Mind of a Married Man. They are different shows but some of the characters on Starved reminded me of those on Mind.

    I have only seen two episodes so far but I am enjoying Starved.

    That Sam & Billy episode was Emmy material, IMO. Certainly moreso than the mainstream, hot-wife-fat-husband-annoying-kids-and-a-dog, laugh track sitcoms which usually win in comedy categories.

    Starved

    Is a very impressive show. Especially when you consider the main character does a lot of the writting. The whole thing is excellent. Hope FX doesn't cancel the show.

    The season finale?! Really? Darn. I just started watching like 3 episodes ago and I was really enjoying it. :(

    That was quick.

    No more Nemo Cakes?

    Maybe there's one in the trash...

    Since I can't do the sitcom thing, two of my favorite live action comedies are of the super-short season variety. I'll look forward to more Starved .. and the virtually ignored Significant Others.

    On a mildly related note, the last two episodes of Starved's (estranged) sibling, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, saved what would've been a weak season. Very funny stuff with the old Nazi and the season finale's molestation bit. God, I just read that last sentence... Anyway, good to see TV comedy which is unapologetically for adults. Go FX. :up: :up: :up:

    Agree on Always Sunny. I was pretty bored and about to punt, but the last ep or two were much better. The intervention scene in the finale where he's going to touch the doll and his finger gets closer and closer... and they cut out... and the weird relative saying "touch it!"... and the two brothers standing behind everyone giving Charlie the google eyes... that was a great scene.

    I'm bummed that Starved had such a short season. A very good show too IMO. Hopefully the'll both be back soon.

    I *loved* starved. I really hope it comes back. I've seen lots of reviews panning it as being tasteless, blah blah, etc. I don't get it: these same reviewers will probably be raving about South Park's new season saying it hasn't lost it's edge, etc.

    Loved 'Starved' as well as 'Always Sunny in Philly'. Both these 2 shows plus 'Significant Others' need to come back!!

    I loved both shows also, hardly a mention of the shows on the FX web site.

    Is anyone making a home-made DVD of Starved Season 1 and/or Philadelphia? I really liked Starved and would like to re-watch the whole season (maybe this time I'll even have the chance to do so without getting the first or last 3 minutes cut off :mad: ).

    If so, PM me.

    Or, if anyone's aware of an official DVD release for Starved, let me know (I doubt if there'd be much talk of that yet since they're not even sure if a Season 2 is coming).

    Thanks.

    I need the season finale desperately. Deleted it by accident and wife is very very upset with me. I could do a download from limewire or any p2p if it was available. WILL PAY EXPENSES FOR A DVD OF IT.

    Looks like they're gonna be replaying this. My tivo caught it, but I can't find the schedule anywhere. IIRC, I think it's scheduled for a mini marathon on March 4.

    Interesting I have 3 shows I want to re do my season passes on since DirecTV likes to mess with this channel.

    I looked the other day for Starved, It's always Sunny in Philadelphia and Rescue Me.

    None were listed even in reruns. But, now I see Starved has 7 episodes listed in two weeks.

    Is this show coming out with Season 2 or was it canceled?
