Can't believe that there's no thread here discussing this show. IMHO, one of the best comedies on TV right now.

Last night's discussion of BJs for $ had me in stitches.

Best show on TV. Stinks that the season is over, but they did get renewed already...

It is definitely a quality program. This, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia and The League are all brilliant shows in the "misfit comedy" genre.

Best new comedy on TV in a while, but since it's on Comedy Central it has little exposure (here), sadly. Hasn't been a weak episode in this first season.

I wouldn't have tuned in if it wasn't after South Park but after watching a couple of episodes I'm a fan.

I've watched the show since it started. It's stupid, but so funny!

The last couple of episodes were absolutely hilarious.

This show is masterful at making ridiculous topics even more ridiculous.

Still watching and liking the show. Guest stars last two weeks have been great. Katee Sackhoff and then Jeff Fahey.

I am the biggest fan of this show, and I haven't watched this weeks episode yet, but the wedding show last week was brutal. I don't think I laughed once. Hopefully tonight I'll watch this weeks episode and it will be back to normal.

I thought the wedding was pretty funny with "Starbuck" making the drug cocktail with cough syrup and such in the blender. It may not have been one of their better episodes.

Ders birthday was perfect timing for my bday. Totally let the Ders out!

Love sports, movies, and games. Slowly some day I'll add a projector and screen. Until then, I'll build up my library.

Solid season so far. The humor is often extremely juvenile, but the show pulls it off so well.

Alice is one of the strongest characters on television today. Her stern attitude makes her all the more attractive, and you're always left wanting to know more about her. The actress who plays her has been doing a phenomenal job.

I watch this show religiously. Yes, it is "stupid', but so funny! I think tea bagging the dead woman in the chair has been the highlight so far, but I could be wrong since there's been quite a few laugh out loud moments.

Wow, short season. I didn't look, but was it 8 episodes, 10? The finale was pretty funny. Seeing how they met was great!

Season three was 10 episodes, the same as the first two seasons.

That said, it did seem unusually short. It is probably because I remember reading a while back that this season was going to be twice as long. Oh well.

Very funny episode for the returning Workaholics last night!
B-Rad as Tony Clifton was great.

Checking in. My brother showed me this show and it's pretty good. Feels like another stoner comedy like It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia or what not.

Did not see the season premier though. I'll be on the lookout for it.

I really liked the episode last night.

It was a long time since I'd last seen Daniel Stern in anything. His character was right up his alley.

Oh, and it was a shame to see a couple episodes back that the actor who plays Jet Set had passed away. He was just starting to get really interesting.

Good episode indeed. As a retired raver, I thought their take on the rave scene was hilarious. May watch it again after a few beers biggrin.gif

A good first couple of episodes, last night's being the better of the two.

What a pitiful performance by Anders in Alice's office! wink.gif

An 'OK' episode last night. I found the underage drinking (middle school!?) at their house party hilarious! Wasn't expecting a bunch of 14 year olds hanging out. Was definitely a "WTF LOL" moment biggrin.gif
