Haven't seen any threads since this debuted a few weeks ago. Initially everyone was wondering how they'd manage a show about eating disorders, but I've found it to be very well done. There is some comedy, but there are a lot of poignant moments as well.

As someone who struggles with weight, I'd love to find a "Belt Tighteners" group around here. The touchy-feely WW meetings just didn't do a dang thing for me. The lady who runs those BT meetings is MUCH more motivating.

All in all, after the first few episodes I find I'm enjoying this show and plan on staying with it.

We *Love* this show. I think there were some threads on it, too, FYI....

Who is the lady from Belt Tighteners?? "It's NOT OK..." ... I swear shes' been on something else!

I love this show!! I have all of them recorded and coverted to DVD - without commercials!! Great show, I have told all my friends about it too.

The woman that leads the Belt Tightners group was in A Dirty Shame - she played the chronic masterbater. I don't know her name.

Just wanted to post about this show.

Glad to hear I'm not the only one enjoying it. I did check for threads before posting, and the only one I found was some speculation before it started. There haven't been any episode by episode review threads a la Rescue Me or the other shows on FX that I enjoy.

This show is a thousand times better that the Sunny in Philadelphia show. I am glad they unpaired them on the schedule so that Starved can stand on its own.

I have to agree that this is one of the best comedies on right now: right up there with Entourage but a whole different feel obviously... Starved isn't pure comedy like Entourage. I know! It reminds me a bit of Sports Night, which I absolutely loved. Sports Night didn't have the same serious subject matter of course but it had the same feel to it IMO: comedy, but with a lot of meat in it.

The first ep. was OK, but I've been hooked more and more each week since.

I watched Entourage originally, but gave it up after a few episodes. While it had lots of funny parts, I just couldn't identify with the characters.

Starved, on the other hand, has characters that I can definitely identify with.

Was it one of the guy's from SNL on the last epi? The guy who could puke on command and not make noise? It cracked me up. Yeah, in a sick kind of way.

I think it was Darrell Hammond, although I'm not positive that's his name. I'm almost positive he was a SNL vet.

That's my one complaint about this show: I can take any number of disgusting things, but watching someone vomit for the sake of entertainment is not my cup of tea.
