Same here, and I liked the first episode.
I thought the second episode was slightly better than the pilot.
If the third isn't a drastic improvement, the sp is history.
I was pleasantly surprised. I didn't have much hope going in but I thought there were a number of good laughs. It's a tentative SP for me.
Pilot was terrible for me. Second episode was promising. Third episode will make or break the series for me.
This. I thought this was better and I laughed a few times. I'm still liking the little skits from the fictional "show" better than the actual show.
I know I've seen Billy's wife before but I can't place it.
I thought his wife was the Delaney from China Beach, I think it was, and other things.
I will give this one more shot based on the speculation above that the third ep may be better, but I'm on the verge of deleting the SP.
If this is basically a show about the behind-the-scenes of their show, I likely will bail anyway. I just don't like what's been happening so far.
We really liked the first episode... Haven't watched episode two yet.
No comments yet on ep 3?
Had some funny bits. The supermarket went on way too long (I know that was the point)
Still, I find it painful to watch... Compared to Louie right afterwards which is 1000x better.
The contrast between the two shows is striking. They shouldn't be back to back, makes The Comedians look that much worse.
I think I'm going to call it quits. After what I thought was a good start, the next two episodes were boring to me.
I totally agree. Last night's ep was awful. Painful to watch, really. I won't bail yet.
I feel compelled to watch this program the same way I watch The Walking Dead.
I have no idea why I watch The Walking Dead, other than to see what the writers do with it. I don't really *like* the show.
I think I'm going to fall into the same pit with this show.. sort of like watching a train wreck. But maybe that's their intention? Make it so bad, people have to watch. Yeah, that's the ticket!
I tried it, hoping it would be funny. It hasn't really tickled me. Maybe I'm just finding the whole "mockumentary" concept to be a little worn out. IT was hilarious in "Spinal Tap" and still great in "The Office" (especially the original British version) but it's just gotten a bit old for me. Sorry, but after 3 episodes, I'm out.
I actually thought it was the funniest of the episodes. I'm still finding the bit at the beginning where they show a bit from the skit they will be doing for "the Billy and Josh show" the best part of the show. I laughed out-loud during the Anthony Bourdain bit. And I enjoyed the supermarket bit as well.
I don't like the Louis CK show all that much. Watched a few episodes and just didn't enjoy it. I liked his old series on HBO much better.
I've given up on the show. EP3 was ok, but it was not funny enough to keep me tuned in.
I'd imagine Josh Gad has simply gotten too expensive, not that Billy Crystal was all that cheap.
No, it was ratings. It was one of the lowest rated original shows on FX.
Josh Gad can not carry a series. At least no one has been able to write one yet that properly uses his talents.
Yeah, he'd good for about 3 minutes... after that, blech.
From the reviews of Pixels, he can't save Adam Sandler, either.
It was not consistently funny. It was like a bad rehash of "30 Rock" with more narcissistic lead characters and a much weaker supporting cast.
