Deserves it's own thread.

Only seen first couple of eps but liking the potential. Also has potential to get irritating though..







Anyone feelin it?

very hit and miss. when it's good, it's good. when it's bad, it's like they try too hard.

Second season of this has been pretty good. More hit than miss. I still get the dream of the nineties song stuck in my head.

I spent a bit of time in Portland in the early 90's, living in the Hawthorne hostel, it's true, it was where young people went to retire, I get a chuckle out of it.

After the first 3 episodes I couldn't hack it anymore and turned it off. The, 'jokes' got tiresome.

BUUUUUUUUUUUUMP

I got into this recently and am quite enjoying it. Anyone else on the portwagon?

I love Kyle Lachlan as the mayor and there's been heaps of quality cameos from the likes of Tim Robbins, Jeff Goldlum, Jack White, Chloe Sevigny and MORE!!!!

The jokes get tired and the characters aren't strong enough to stand up as something you want to see regularly, probably because thety're meant to be funny as one-dimensional people but that doesn't allow for repetition.

Watched season 1, that was enough for me.

Haven't found that to be the case at all Dubz. The characters are certainly more dimensional than the fuckwits on hugely popular prime time shows like Big Bang Theory and Two and a Half men.

I did say that ive slacked off on season 3, but maybe thats because when I found the show I did a s1/s2 marathon in a short span of time so season 3 wasnt the first thing on my list when it started coming out.
Will watch tonight, I have NOTHING to watch nowadays when I am inbetween episodes.

I gave up awhile ago but after catching a few on abc2 it's drawing me back in, not sure what season they're airing though.

yeah i watched a couple on a plane. not sure if season 2 or 3, but it looks to be getting better, finding its feet a bit more than in the first season alone.
