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.

Haven't started this one yet.
Hef is right on all things. Except for when I disagree with him. In which case he's probably still right.

I watched the first episode of season two a couple of nights ago. Way too early to judge this season, but I wasn't blown away like I was with the first episode of season one. We'll see, I guess.

Being that I am a huge Gilmore Girls fan, and of Amy Sherman-Palladino, this is on my radar. Need to get around to it eventually.

Finished season two last night. I thought it was even more hilarious than the first one. Production values were through the roof, I loved how they utilized Tony Shalhoub this season. He was more or less background the first season but they really wrote him well this time round, I just wished they continued to use Midge's mom the same way. She was great in the first couple of episodes but then kinda dropped off.

Still an amazing season and great send off in the end with a nice setup for season three. I'm already craving for season three.

Thanks to the recent bump of this thread, we started watching last week.  I'm chiming in without reading other posts, having now made it through five episodes, just to say 'thank you'.

It is deserving of the awards that it has won.

We finished season 2 last night. Goddammit, I want season 3 right now!  :lol What a finale! So many changes in the wind.

*KINDA SPOILERY* But not really

That was a great second season! I think the writers and producers must have realized that Midge's brand of comedy would start to become too familiar to the viewer and were brilliant to make the show about so much more. Paris, vacation in the Catskills, and the telethon were awesome! Mrs. P says that she was most surprised (and pleased) by Joel's redemption story.

Once again, this is Alex Borstein and Rachel Brosnahan's show, but I agree that Tony Shalhoub really shined this season, and for a brief but glorious (too few) episodes, so did Marin Hinkle!

Okay, that was a lot of exclamation points. Sorry guys. I love this show.

Agreed on all points. I love how they expanded a lot of the characters this season. Joel's arc was great too, I'm glad they didn't just do the easy route and make him the cliched jerk.

This was a good show. I liked it way more than I expected to. Susie is one of my favorite supporting characters in recent memory.
