I'm liking this show so far. The writing is smart and funny. I don't know Andrea Savage as a comedian, but she's been the comedy world for a while, according to IMDB. 

And I love Jason Mantzoukas. He's basically playing himself, but he's still funny. 

 

They actually called the latest episode 'Ass Cubes.' Hilarious.

Andrea Savage is HITG for me, but I can't remember exactly what I've seen her in.  I am enjoying this show though.  Did they ever say what Andrea does for a living in the show?  I know that she said in episode one that Kyle was her writing partner.  I just don't recall if they said what they are writing for.  A show?  Her stand-up material?

She's currently President Montez on VEEP but has been in a million things. 

I need to check this show out because if it wasn't for his deadly allergy to eggs Jason is my perfect man.

I don't watch Veep so I had to imdb her. It was iZombie I saw her in most recently lol.

Show reminds me a ton of Curb Your Enthusiasm. Just with a younger focus, female voice, and more sex jokes. But I like it so far. It's cringeworthy at times similar to CYE which can be hit or miss for me because of that in particular, but so far, it's a level I can take and I like the rest. Great cast and for once, Jason (Rafi from the League) isn't annoying me with every other breath he takes, so that's a welcome surprise.

I've never heard of this show.  But it has to be a Canadian show, right?

I'll see myself out.

It's on the ever-irritating and obnoxious truTV channel. Although, they've taken a step in the right direction with this show. It's very very funny.

I rarely know what channel a show comes on anymore. I TiVo everything I watch. And forget about knowing the day and time.  

--I don't know how I stumbled upon this one. I think my son had been watching one of those "real science" shows. (As opposed to those fake science shows). 

Streaming shows are a whole other beast. Here's me trying to find The Handmaid's Tale: "Is it on Netflix? Dammit! Amazon Video? Dammit! Hulu? Finally...

I'm not sure if you were being serious or sarcastic, but I (seriously) have no idea where the show is supposed to be set. It looks L.A.-ish. Is it?

Good show.  Andrea is legitimately very funny.  It seems odd that a channel called "TruTV" would air a scripted show.

It was an unpleasant surprise when I saw an ad for that stupid, douchey "Adam Ruins Everything" show come on.

@topanga, I think the joke is supposed to be that Canadians say "I'm sorry" a lot. :) 

Oh. I'll show myself out. 

 

ETA: On my  DirecTV DVR, they changed the name of the Ass Cubes episode to "A... Cubes." Dammit, who complained? That was such a great title.

Last night's was great.  "Our therapist told you to rape me???" -- one of the funniest lines I've heard in a while.

I hated the commercials for this show in the lead-up to the first episode.  I skipped the first episode, very confident that I would hate the show just as much.  I was too lazy to reach five additional inches to get the remote when a rerun of the first episode came on tonight after Impractical Jokers (my brand-new guiltiest of pleasures).  I'm trying so. very. hard. to not like this show, but I'm kind of loving it.  I like her husband's role as the bemused straight man and her dynamic with her bearded friend.  I'm in for the rest of the season, dammit.

Oh my, Jenny got roofied?? It is funny but also not funny. I love Andrea and how her sense of humor is skewed; I have often gotten in trouble for finding absurd things funny also. And I just adore her husband and how he reacts to her. Relationship goals, for sure. 

And their daughter with the handwriting samples was fantastic! I wish more people,watched and discussed this show.

Did anyone watch this week's episode? Andrea trying to keep her daughter's options open was funny. I only raised my one boy (now 17). Is it such a slippery slope with daughters? Teaching them that they can Door be anything and to find their joy, whether it's being a stay at home mom or a working mom, or not a mom at all?

And I didn't really *get* the awkwardness at the swim party, I don't know why they felt so uncomfortable while their kids were there...or if the were uncomfortable, why not tell the girls they wanted to wait for the other parents to come? The butt bump was funny, though.

Yeah that was so confusing to me. I would have understood it slightly more if they had never interacted before but they had and had a good rapport and seemed comfortable in a way that was not dependent on their spouses. And she was so crazy uncomfortable in her bikini it made me wonder why she chose it and what sort of magic their spouses have that she would have been totally comfortable if they were there. And since she knew she was going to be uncomfortable why didn't she just lie and say she forgot her bathing suit because both of them didn't have to be in the pool. Hell the girls were fine with their noodles neither had to actually get into the pool just be present and able to jump in if something happened.

I am fairly reserved but I have never felt uncomfortable changing behind a locked door, so that also made me go WTF. It just seemed to take a really heightened/conservative view of men and women can't be friends and take it to men and women can't be together without their spouse/partners alone or not. 

The only reactions I understood were Mike's who didn't think it was a big deal and the wife who seemed most upset that he hadn't shared the story with her and that everyone else knew it.

I wasnt sure about this show at first.. like i like her filthy humor but didnt like the mom jokes but now its all hilarious to me. The shorts guy killed me after she said something he was wearing pants! Like she crushed the guy!

The daughter is pretty funny and a good actress her trying to check her moms handwriting against santas, when she told the other mom that was not enough and also her just trying to enjoy her show while her mom is trying to counterprogram her killed me too.

I like how they keep adding to jokes from the beginning like the blind perv and the "garbage person" too funny! I wish more people watched but got a season 2 so hopefully it picks up steam by then.

I really like this show a lot, too.

The daughter isn't a typical sitcom kid, tossing off one-liners and smarter than her parents.  She's just a real kid, which ends up being much funnier.  And I love the character of the husband (and the very cute actor who plays him!).  He's not the stock sitcom dad/husband who's too stupid to work the toaster.  Just a smart, tolerant, bemused grown-up who's happy to let his loudmouth wife take center stage but isn't a fool because of it.  And I'm very happy to see Kathy Baker and Martin Mull getting to use their talents again.  Not to mention Andrea's friend, played by Alison Tolman--if there were any sense in the TV world, she'd still be starring in her terrific show Downward Dog, which I'll miss a great deal.

Eventually we're going to find out that the "blind" perv isn't really blind.  Someone is going to notice that he only asks for help from women and never men because he can see them.  I'm so glad this was renewed.

This past episode was hilarious! When the nextdoor (?) coordinator checked in and we found out Andrea posted under her husband's name? Paraphrasing: "you sounded terrified". 

And Andrea stripping off her pants as soon as she was alone LOL

Her overreaction at the party starting at 9:30pm XD

Really this is the funniest scripted show I've seen in ages. The cast is phenomenal. The continuity is the best!

Yes! Another thing that made me laugh was the oh ya moment i had putting it together that "he" recommended the gynaecologist. Im gonna have to rewatch when the season is done to catch some more stuff (maybe i didnt find it funny but will knowing what layers they add) it sucks only one more episode this season!

I'm so sad about only one more episode, but I'm also so happy it was renewed! She is hysterical! And I loved when the "blind guy" asked her to take him to the bathroom, she ignored him, and the other lady offered to take him while giving Andrea such a *look*!! LMAO

Andrea was on the Nerdist and mentioned the shorts guy was a real thing that happened when she lived in an apartment building and she would sometimes hide in her apartment or pretend to be talking on her phone to not do the bit, it only ended when she moved! One thing that range false to me is that she didn't know his name when they basically share a driveway and but it made a little more sense knowing it was based on living in an apartment complex. 

The Nerdist interview is good with the added element that she and Chris used to date, they broke up because of his drinking and helped lead him to his sobriety.

I kept hoping the shorts guy would return her key that he found on the driveway, making her feel like even more of an ass :) 

I loved the "Nextdoor" thing. I think there's a dog serial killer in my neighborhood too!

I donno the finale was funny but not as funny as the most of the rest. Shouldnt have been the season finale last weeks would have been better i think.

There were some great moments though like the husband saying please dont engage the room and realizing she had that pic as her signature but a bunch of jokes i just didnt laugh at. Reminded me of the first few episodes when i was unsure of this show.

I started watching this show by mistake, I think I thought it was something else so I left the TV on.  But it held my interest and I keep coming back to it so it must be doing something right.

I'm not familiar with Andrea Savage but I gathered pretty quickly that she was a comedienne who had been given her own show.  I like the jokes about her bad acting (similar to how Jerry Seinfeld used to make fun of his acting skills), because she's not the best.  I'm surprised to hear on this board that she's had so many roles.  She has a couple of quirks that kind of bother me, but not too badly.  First off, she seems to do that "shimmy her shoulders" sexy move once or more in every episode.  Reminds me of how Penny from Big Bang Theory used to always do the duck face.  Secondly, she seems to be one of these people who try to show every tooth in her mouth when she talks.  Looks like she's spent a lot of money there so I guess I can't blame her.

One of the things that interested me was how she has this close male friend that she spends a lot of time with, although there is no suggestion that her husband has a close female friend that he spends a lot of time with.  I kind of wonder how that works, even though yeah it's Hollywood.

I wish she would tone down her delivery just a bit. Otherwise I really like this show. I think her mom is hilarious.

Just started watching the show.  The promo for it did not do it justice.  This show is hilarious!! I am happy to see it will have a second season! 

We were cracking up in the episode where they talk about Sound of music and Nazi's. The daughter comes out of her room because she can't sleep, because she thinks Hitler is in her closet.  The way she said it was perfect.  Too funny!!

Lots of laughs in all the episodes I have watched so far. Also another one was....Andrea says to Mike, our therapist told you to rape me? Just the way she delivered that was hilarious.  

Great cast.  I think Mike is a perfect calm compared to Andrea.  I also like her writing partner.

I loved the whole scene with "Our therapist told you to rape me"! Especially her laughing and him becoming more and more embarrassed. They're really amazing together.

This show is amazing. I want to be faux Andrea's BFF. The guest stars are amazing, and well used. The relationship with the husband, and the daughter, is fantastic. I just love, LOVE it. It doesn't fill the much sweeter Playing House-sized hole in my heart, but it's the best thing I've stumbled across in forever. I read it was renewed, so I hope it's coming back soon-ish.

Savage's wit is just that and I am here for that. Big time.

I watched again, and laughed just as hard. My favorite line: "Our therapist told you to rape me?" It kills me every single time.
