  4. This looks like an excellent replacement for the Lodge 49 sized hole in my heart. I fully expect AMC to cancel it.

    seemed pretty clear from the trailer. unfortunate for jason, who like a lot, and andre, who i would die for.

    My biggest issue with the first EP is it comes off thinking its a lot smarter/deeper than it actually is/was. It also doesn’t help that the subject matter of a 9-5 worker bored with their life / feeling trapped in the machine Is an arc told a thousand times before, so for this show to posit the idea its the most inventive thing in world for touching upon it was a massive.

    Also take my words with a grain of salt cause i literally never heard of this show till i saw it was included in my torrent of better call Saul and i figured “why not, ill watch this” lol. I’m not really the target audience perhaps.

    I'm still gonna give it a shot
     
  14. I liked it. The reviews I read mentioned each episode focuses on a different character as the lead.

    I love Jason Segel so much so I'll support whatever he does, and Andre 3000 is a huge plus. Will watch for sure

    I loved this. There's a pretty big bias for me because Segel and 3 Stacks are two of my favorite people in the world and I'm also a sucker for this kind of show but I thoroughly enjoyed it and can't wait to see where it goes

    It actually reminded me a ton of Maniac for some reason, and not just because of Sally Field lol

    I was halfsies on the first episode, a few things were a bit TOO wordy and strange, but the concept is cool. Episode 2 was great though, very quick growing characters

    I genuinely have no clue where this is going. I actually really like how there are no actual stakes (for now, will probably change lol)

    An inconsequential shift as the continents drift.

    yo wtf this sjow was sold to me as a comedy. I spent episodes 2 and 3 crying? that being said I want more immediately
