    Anyone catch the debut Sunday night? The guy on the far right is JD's Doppelganger.

    It was better than I expected. A few funny moments. I liked it enough to give Episode #2 a shot.

    That guy on the far right is the great Martin Starr.

    I can't watch anything starring Millenials, I don't like those fuckers. Even if it is a Mike Judge show.

    The main guy is almost unwatchable but it's an amazing performance if he doesn't really act like that IRL. I will keep watching though because Mike Judge is great.

    was ok. I can see it being popular with the millennial crowd. Its leaps better than Treme and that other bullshit HBO is coming up with. It's not a solid stick-to-the-wall turd, but its also not a diarrehea liquid no-shit either. Somewhere between not so great Mexican and gas station discounted sushi.

    If you know Mike Judges pacing and brand of comedy, like Office Space, you'll enjoy this.

    I only watched 15 minutes and turned it off. I forgot Mike Judge was involved, so I might give it another try just based on how much I liked Office Space. But that stoner guy with the curly hair, I can't fucking stand.

    That^^ the fact that some hoodie wearing snot nozzle is a billionaire who gives advice on tax policy, immigration policy, and philanthropy pisses me off. Particularly when said snot nozzle was born the year I was getting tanked at GBH and Descendants concerts. Now get off my lawn you damn kids!

    It wasn't good. I like Mike Judge's movies but this wasn't funny, was way too "inside", and the whole SV thing is nauseating.

    And no, not even close to Office Space, or Idiocracy. Not even "extract".

    It could have been and it should have been much better.

    ...but it was whatever it was designed to be.......IMO..kind of down the middle and blah.

    It was the pilot episode...so maybe it gets better down the road...or maybe it gets worse.

    I find the setting to be ripe with various amounts of possible material.
    Spice it up..or tear it all down.
