Anyone watch this show? It is freakin hilarious. I just happened to stumble upon the first episode on its premiere night and have been hooked ever since. Bought the Seasons 1 & 2 DVD the day it came out. I know it's not a huge budget show, but I really wish the seasons ran longer. The 3rd one that just ended had maybe 10-12 episodes (with 2 shown per night for the first few weeks). I want more new ones!

I went to school just outside Philly, so it's cool to see them go to and make reference to a lot of the things unique to that city (Temple, Bryn Mawr, Lincoln Financial Field, South Street, etc.).

For those who haven't seen it, it's along the style of Curb Your Enthusiasm or The Office, as it doesn't have a studio audience, but the cameras that follow the characters to different settings. Lots of subtle jokes and ridiculous story lines. It's definitely worth checking out.

For those who have seen it....let's discuss.

Day man, fighter of the night man!

The budget's a little bigger now that Danny DeVito's been producing, which is great. I love the show though. It's like Seinfeld on network tv, same kind of idea. I just love how they all have no morals or reservations whatsoever. The one where they get addicted to crack to get on welfare is awesome, and so is the one where they all try to sleep with each other's moms :lol:

The question I have is: do you think the coffee shop waitress is hot? At first I didn't really think so, I though she was pretty average, but the more episodes she's in the hotter she seems to get

Yea, the crack episode (2 please? 2 rocks of cracks? Is that enough?) and the parent-banging episode are great. My faves in each season are Charlie Wants an Abortion (Charlie finds out he has a kid. MY favorite line of all time from the show is in that episode - "Oh my god! I will smash you face into...into a JELLY!" I crack up every time he says it. The presentation is great.), Hundred Dollar Baby (Dee and Charlie try steroids) and Sweet Dee Dates a Retarded Person (although the bands that Charlie, Mac, Dennis and Frank are in are the best parts). I also like the story of Mac and the tranny that has run through a couple episodes.

As far as the waitress goes, I'd say she's average, too. Sure, I'd bang her, lol, but she's nothing to obsess about I guess. According to Wikipedia, the waitress is Charlie's wife in real life. The hottest cameo actress has the be the girl from Charlie wants an Abortion (the one that Mac hooks up with). I've never seen it, but I heard she was on the OC.

Also, the best episode is by far "The Gang Gives Back', where they coach basketball. I laughed through the whole episode and then watched it again.

I've seen bits of it but i always thought it was stupid. Seeing as the Office and Curb you Enthusiasm are two of my favorite shows, i guess i should give this one a better look.

Yea, it's worth a shot, man. Like I said, I just kinda stumbled upon it (didn't think it was anything special based on previews), but ended up loving it. The list of awesome quotes could go on and on...

Charlie - "You heard him, man, there were niggers hanging from rafters!"
Waitress - "Oh, that's nice....(to Mac and Dennis) Coffee? (to Charlie) Hitler? I'll be sure to put lots of cream in that for you..."
Charlie - "No, I'm not Adolf Hitler..."

As I said above, their seasons are short and they aren't running new episodes right now (Season 3 ended about a month ago). Not sure if they're showing reruns right now, but that would be the day and time if they are...

No look I'm not talking about killing the guy. I'm just talking about going up there with a group of dudes and intimidating him - maybe break his arm.

You can't go and break Tom Brady's Arm!

Oh YES I CAN! No more Superbowl's for that pretty boy!

Listen, lemme tell you something with absolute honesty and concern for your well being -- Tom Brady would kick your ass!

wow I had no idea Charlie Day was actually married to "the waitress" Mary Elizabeth Eliis

lol

It makes his stalking obsession of her (in the show) that much funnier!

Can't wait for the new season to start up. Sept 17th!

In anticipation of season 5 I have recently introduced my most excellent roommate to the show.. we are barely on episode 5 season 1 and she is already addicted.

Rock on gang!!! :cheers:

The cast is doing a 6-show tour of a live performance of "Nightman Cometh", the musical written by Charlie in the last episode of season 4. They're doing 2 shows in Philly on Sept. 17th and will follow each one with showings of the new episode on a big projector screen (the Philly one is in a theater). There's also gonna be a band or something (I hope it's Chemical Toilet or Electric Dream Machine).

And I totally have tickets.

There will be an episode near the end of the season called "The Gang Reignites the Rivalry". They showed it during an IASIP premiere event in September and it's one of the better recent ones.

Just started watching the first two seasons of this show last week. Great stuff. My favorite episode so far is the welfare episode.

Also, while the gang is funny when they talk amongst themselves, some of my favorite exchanges so far have been when they have to interact with normal people. The gang is so disconnected from reality, that when they are pitted up against average people, they look even crazier.

Charlie trying to explain that he's in AA because he blew up a building by throwing a flaming bag of poop into a window was great. He says it like it's something that may happen to him a few times a week, while the rest of the AA meeting is looking at him like he's a lunatic.

That was a good episdoe. It's great when they are trying to get a loan from the woman at the bank, that jsut ends up with, which one of us do you want to bang you."

The other thing that makes me laugh until i cry is the end of the episode where they buy the police car, and Charlie is leaving an envelope on the steps of city hall with "Mare" on it. I just about had a heart attack from laughing so hard the first time I saw that.

When Charlie peers back and sees the door marked private.. one of my favorite scenes ever. Makes me LOL every time. :lol:

"Ohhhhh shit! Look at that door dude. You see that door right there, the one marked PIRATE? You think a Pirate lives in there?!?"

"I see a door marked PRIVATE, is that the door you're talking about Charlie?"

Thursday is a bad DVR day. I have a lot of shit recording at once so I try to get it at 11 when they replay it. For some reason, my DVR accepts the recording at that time but then it cancels out. I only have 1 other recording at that time so I have no idea what the issue is. I have to remember to do it again manually around 8. PITA and I'm not always home to do it.

All done the first two. Yeah it does get better. Usually I give up on shows if the first 2 episodes or so don't appeal to me, but this series I gave a chance because it starts off slow and picks up.
