    If "Up here" is Canada, Internet yes, Hulu no. Hulu blocks Canadian visitors because so much of the content is "owned" by other parties in Canada.

    As for the show itself, I like it.

    I started watching this to see how Tom Hanks kid Colin would do. I almost killed the SP but since its a summer show it remains.

    After watching four episodes, I have to say that I like this show. Definitely keeping this SP.

    I think I've laughed out loud more at the first three episodes I've watched of this than I did at the entire last season of "The Office." Bradley Whitford's kick and "computer machine" are good for a chuckle each time.

    I think the show has gotten better.

    The 3.51 or whatever episode was the best so far for me.

    Taking a bit to adjust to bradley whitford being so over the top, but the show is growing on me.

    To me it feels like the show is sort of finding its legs a bit. Like at first everyone was kind of feeling things out and they have made some adjustments and it is starting to get on more solid footing.

    I remember when Modern Family first started, I and many other people had a hard time with how over the top Ty Burrell was but he settled in and became a great character.

    My parents were on vacation when the Lost finale aired. They still haven't seen it. I've been looking (for them) but have not been able to find anything that will *reliably* let them watch it. I hate doing it, but I may have to BT it (while that's still *legal* up here).

    Just watched the 1st and 3rd episodes last night, and we liked it. Pretty funny and good characters. The 2nd one must have been on when we were having some DVR hard drive issues, will have to watch that one online I guess. I'm not sure if it will have enough appeal to become a big hit, but I wouldn't mind if it were only on for half a season every year. I'd actually say that about a lot of shows since we're always so far behind on most of them.

    Unfortunately, it looks the show is getting it's summer run cut short.

    Not sure if Fox is just cutting their losses and are saving some episodes for the Fall but based on the ratings, I'd have to guess the former.

    I deleted my SP a week or two ago when I tried to watch the 3rd or maybe 4th episode. It was just unbearably slow and humor was pretty lacking and/or too juvenile. Then I went and watched 5 or 6 episodes of Freaks & Geeks in a row to purge it from my immediate memory. :)

    According to the link posted, they plan to bring this back in the fall, at least repeats for the first 3 weeks of Sept and new episodes after that. It IS coming back on Fridays, so something can be read into that.

    Quite honestly, I'm a little suspicious though.
    The ratings have been 1.0 to 1.1 for 18-49 for the last few weeks.

    Most shows would be canceled outright for those numbers (unless you're on the CW).

    That definitely sounds low... maybe for summer that's not as bad?

    I tried to like it, but deleted the SP a couple of weeks ago. It just wasn't cutting it for us here at Chez Barnay.

    I hope they keep it. I love how completely absurd and over-the-top it is. Bradley Whitford's character is fantastic. I don't think Colin Hanks does a very good job, but he's good enough to play the straight man to Whitford's insanity.

    I called that line as soon as they were on opposite sides of the bad guys!

    This episode was way over the top! Loving it! Didn't need all the close-ups of BW's butt, although it did add to the hilarity, in a Will Farrell way!
