Oh, I've seen GIFs of that show on imgur.

[Goes to investigate actual show.]

So... I'm less than one minute into season 1, episode 1, and... ay carumba!

It's one of those shows that I started watching because there was nothing else on, fully aware that it's not really my kind of thing, but ended up really enjoying it.

Ugh, I just hit a patch of kissy-smoochy couple scenes... I hope this gets better.

OK, it gets better after the kissy-smoochy stuff.

... ay carumba!

Also, not seeing Jason Biggs in American Pie is taking some getting used to.

I just found out the same creator who made this also made Weeds, a show that I LOVED. Definitely going to start this tonight, I hope it's not that good so I can stop watching it when I choose to. That was my problem with Weeds (and great shows you can stream online), it's so easy to lose hours of time when you're in the moment and the next episode icon is so nearby.

Prepare to be 'disappointed'.

I can't stop watching.

I sped through both seasons in a matter of days. It's almost the opposite of everything I usually enjoy, but all of the elements just seem to work together. I'm not sure what I'd compare it with. :shifty:

First season almost complete in under 24 hours haha

The producer, similar to what she did in weeds, does a really good job of portraying a normal person's life and making it go through almost surreal dramatic twists and turns. I like it a lot so far
