Tried to watch it again, still does nothing for me.

This show started out as a realistic, brilliantly hillarious show with social commentary. Then it became a surreal farce. Shame.

I agree except I like it better this way. Too many times, comedies try to teach lessons or have someone who's supposed to be smart and it just does not work.


About last night, I almost died when Charlie said he cut the brakes to the van. Wild card, bitches!!!

This show cracks me up in ways I'm not comfortable with. I love it's style of comedy because there's nothing else like it on tv.

This show is insane, I loved the bit about Danny Devito's character confusing his life with Rambo's funny stuff.

The first ep of this past week's batch was hilarious! Green man!!!

But the second one felt off and only after I'd watched it did I realize there was no Dee and no Frank. Odd.

But still one of the funniest shows on television.

Not a big Artemis fan, but when she was regaling the gang with her theories and it just went on and on and never ended, I was in hysterics by the end of it. It rivaled Mac, Frank and Dennis' conversation about bears and twinks last season.

It goes on so long, it breaks way past the uncomfortable barrier and soars into hilarity.

I thought this last episode was a bit stupid (even more so than usual)

but the subplot about a "girls night out" was pretty funny.

Is anyone other than the scant few watching this fantastic show??

"Sweet Dee Gets a Heart Attack" was a return to form, easily one of the funniest episodes this season!

"That's for you, bumblebee"
"Later, dick n balls"

Oh man. Please guys, every episode is available on fxnetworks.com. Start at the beginning and enjoy.

I did not know this, but I will be watching...probably stream it as I work out.

And I actually did catch "Sweet Dee has a Heart Attack", I had to keep explaining the Cuckoo's Nest refferences to my wife.

Brilliant

Sadly, I forgot that DeVito was in that movie. Once I remembered, it made even funnier.

^^Yeah, the guy playing cards saying "Hit me" did a pretty great imitation of DeVito. I was impressed - "Whoa - subtlety on this show?"

I caught up to this show a couple of months ago. It can be pretty funny, though sometimes it's more loud than funny. (See George Costanza during the last two years on Seinfeld) But in its defense, it's still funnier than just about anything on network TV right now. The only current comedy I like more is Flight of the Conchords.

It's like the bastard love child of South Park, Seinfeld and Curb Your Enthusiasm. Except way more crude.

A great video of the Gang's appearance at Comic Con, which I missed.

Another hilarious episode last week.
