    Yeah great premiere. I know they said the college was in Maryland but did they say if it was UMD? I live like 25 minutes from there lol

    Really hoping it's just fully leaning into the comedy scene in this season now that the Lauren Lapkus story is basically over

    The minute of comedy in these last two eps was good but this dating storyline is boring me to death.

    Being Jewish (100% Bar-Mitzah'd and everything), I loved every second of the scene at the synagogue.

    I personally love how uncomfortable Pete is this season. This season will awaken him.

    I listened to Jamie Lee on Guys We Fucked and I had no idea her and Pete dated for some time before they both settled down with their partners. that lucky SOB Episode 4 this season is the best episode of this show, hands down.

    omg episode 4 was my favorite of the entire run so far.

    I empathised with the crowd that hated that douche so much.

    Yeah ep 4 was great.

    What's up, Hot Dog?

    Haven’t watched ep. 4 yet but caught up with 2 & 3 couple days ago. So if Lapkus represents his first wife, Jamie Lee semi-playing herself to represent their courtship, does Kat represents his current wife Val? The only similarity I know of is they’re both blonde

    That’s the only similarity I see, too.

    Oh goose Prestigious

    I wish Pete had supported Jamie more vocally even if it makes sense that he wouldn't
    I like how they captured how depressing suburban comedy clubs are

    I'm almost always so into this show when it's on that I get surprised when it ends. And yeah, last episode might have been the best yet.


    I think I've come to the realization that I'm more into the life/art of comedians than actual standup comedy if that makes sense

    I can't believe there are only two more episodes left this season. I can't think of another show where the season is over before you even know it.

    Last episode was hard to stomach, I was cringing pretty much the entire time.

    This season is incredible.

    Maximum cringe from The Watch Party episode. I have lived that street argument before (from Pete's side) and I felt sick to my stomach. Too true.

    WOOOOOOOOF. Sorry to pry, but was there some reflection at least? As in, someone realized how ridiculous it is/looks to accuse someone else of their skewed perception?

    DEATH MINUS

    well obviously it wasn't the same exact situation, but I mean the whole getting in a fight while the other party is drunk and wildly accusing you of stuff she think you did. the whole thing got started because I liked a girl's post (the one in our new video lol) on instagram.

    Fucking BEEN THERE. Stick to the higher ground and you're fine.

    I am very curious how this season is going to end. I hope Kat will take the mature route and see that things are innocent and accept it.

    there is no way things with him and Kat are working out, also I think they are purposely making the audience start hating her at least low-key.

    Yeah, no way they are together by the end of the season. For Pete's sake (see what I did there)

    yeah she doesn't seem like the right fit for Pete at all long term but on the other hand it does seem like an enriching experience for him.

    I love Pete Homles (his stand up and his podcast) so I am assuming I would love this show. Is it typical of his sense of humor and how dramatic is it? I have been disappointed with a lot of dramedy movies and shows lately that seem to forget the humor for long periods of time and are vehicles to show off comedians serious chops.

    I think it's far more drama than comedy heavy and a lot of the humor comes from either cringey situations or actual stand-up.
    might be another disappointment for you in that regard, but also it is SO GOOD.

    Im a fan of Holmes and his style of comedy too. That said, this show definitely represents it well - some drama sprinkled in but not so much that it takes over or ruins the moment. I laughed during each episode if that means anything...highly recommend checking it out.
