No Activity Series on CBS All Access

Anyone else watching this crazy series? It is so different. When I read what it was about I didn't think it would work (e.g. two people in a car the entire time) but it actually works. Gets better as it goes along too. Down the road they are not just in their car (will not spoil anything). Season 3 just started so you have a lot of episodes to binge watch if interested.

From the Wiki article:

No Activity is "set against the world of a major drug cartel bust" and follows "two low-level cops who have spent far too much time in a car together; two criminals who are largely kept in the dark; two dispatch workers who haven’t really clicked; and two Mexican tunnelers who are in way too small a space considering they’ve only just met"

I can't find a trailer for it that doesn't have explicit language in it so you can search for them yourselves if you want.

I tried to watch the first season a while ago when I had a free month of CBSAA with commercials and couldn't get into it (i.e., it wasn't worth sitting through commercials like I was doing for ST Discovery). Maybe I'll give it another shot next time I have a commercial-free sub (which is the only way I'll do it now).

S1&2 are on Hulu. When I recorded them the commercial breaks were there but only 3 or 4 actual ads in the whole series. BBC/ Australian apparently? I might check it out tonight...

Edit> So I watched the first 2 eps - definitely not for everyone but pretty good deadpan humor and the one cop's facial expressions are priceless. Kind of like a Peter Sellers version of Waiting for Godot.

I recognized a couple of the characters from City Homicide on Prime. I'll watch a couple more tonight. Purely as a wild guess I think fans of Detectorists might like it although the characters aren't as appealing.

Edit2> Fitting ending for S1. One ep had the guy from Stumptown as an American DEA agent.


Who knew "flammable" and "inflammable" mean the same thing???
