I like this show, and
I reviewed the first
episode, but I wasn't able to watch it regularly because
I don't have Showtime. It's a fun little comedy and parts of
it go into ridiculous fantasy. That reminds me of a show I
used to love on HBO called "Dream On." I'm very glad to have
the series on DVD! They're enjoyable. It's not a
laugh-out-loud kind of humor. It's more like a droll, dry
humor that makes you chuckle.
I read in
this great review that Showtime canceled it. That's a
shame because I really think it's great. I do wonder why the
DVD is "Season One" and not "The Complete Series?" Sadly,
there are no extras or features, just the episodes.
Anyway, check it out - buy the DVD!
Coming to DVD
Release Date: October 6
Thom Payne (Steve Coogan) is a 44 year-old man whose world
is thrown into disarray when his 25 year-old "wunderkind"
boss arrives, saying things like "digital," "social" and
"viral." Is he in need of a "rebranding," or does he just
have a "low joy ceiling?" Maybe pursuing happiness is a
fool's errand? Maybe, after 44 years on this ludicrous
planet, settling for happyish is the
best one can expect.
