Wife and I finished this show. Holy shit, this show is hilarious as hell. My wife is a huge Gilmore Girls fan so she wanted to check this out and I've been meaning to as well, seeing as the lead character had a role in House of Cards.

Very well written and the production value is through the roof. Acting is amazing by Rachel and the 50s setting is really well done.

I'm glad someone else gave this one a shot. I was genuinely surprised at how much I enjoyed this show. We've actually watched the first season twice now.

It's a very good tv-series. Looking forward to season 2.

Great show! A ton of dialogue that's so quick that I had to re watch some of those scenes to catch it. Great music throughout too.

I'm bored at work so after reading this thread I popped by Amazon and fired up the first episode. Holy shit!

God, there is some great acting in this show. Alex Borstein as Susie is hilarious! How did I not know about this show before?

I completely get the reaction, this show is downright hilarious and is along the lines of an R rated version of Gilmore Girls. All the characters are great and so well written. I like also how, at least to me, the story could easily have gone down a cliched path but instead kept me guessing where it was headed. Didn't feel like they took the safe route at all.

I ended up finishing season one that very same night I started watching. I'm going to watch it again with Mrs. P when she returns from Philly.
