Yeah. I haven't seen this week's episode yet but, god damn. What a tremendous show.

Between this, Broad City, and Portlandia, we are in a bold new age of television comedy.

That episode was a bit weak, but it will be hard to top last week's episode.

I'm starting to wonder if Forrest really does have a TV show. I think he's just having a mental breakdown. The show doesn't really make sense, if he really does have a TV show. If he really did have a show, there's no reason his wife would have divorced him. Anyone with half a brain would realize it was for his show. No one besides Forrest and his staff ever acknowledges his show, even when he has staff members or the camera crew with him. It's all in his head.

I've seen interviews with Daly that say that aspect will be explained near the end of season one. http://www.avclub.com/article/andy-d...-wait--201855?

AVC: How much does she know about what he does for a living? Is she aware of the premise for his show? At a certain point, she could be like, "This must be something stupid you're doing for the show," and let it go. Did you think about her character like that?

AD: Oh yeah, absolutely. It was something that in various different drafts of various different scripts we went to pains to explain, and at some point said, "You know, it's not fun to hear a [Laughs.] big, long explanation about all this. Why don't we allow it to be this serious and allow this to play out?" But we have it all figured out and, in the final episode of the season, some of that is addressed a little more directly. But just to let you know, the logic that we have for it is that she knows, obviously, that he is the focal point of a television show, but he, for scientific purposes--so that none of these reviews are compromised in any way at all--has not told her. Not only does he not tell her what he is reviewing, from review to review, but he has not told her that this is going to be a show in which he is reviewing life experiences. She feels that it's a documentary about the life of a reviewer. So their family life is being captured by cameras, but she has no idea that any of this is for the show.

That said, I did think it was a little odd that he felt worried it might be illegal to give someone the finger while driving, but in the first episode he stole jewellery, cars, a dog etc in the first episode and bought a ton of coke too.

Forrest punching Grant is probably one of the most cathartic moments of tv in the last few years, the series always placed him as a background manipulator but he got so comfortable with his control over Forrest that he went too far.

I had NFI this even existed. It's exactly the type of thing I would've watched too, what the hell was I doing between 2008 and 2010....

Just watched a few eps of Review with Myles Barlow and it's really good. Myles goes completely balls out, even more so than Forrest, which results in him getting beat up in pretty much every episode and generally hating every review by the end. I particularly liked the review of addiction where Myles proceeds to get addicted to everything known to man. Great stuff, anyone who hasn't seen it should definitely check it out.

It's way darker, or at least it gets that way, but this version isn't on its second season yet, so the comparison is a bit unfair.

Yeah Myles doesn't seem to have any reservations about doing what he's been asked to review, even though its pretty obvious from the onset they're all going to end really badly. Forrest knows he's doing something that is going to end badly, but reluctantly does it anyway.

We probably shouldn't expect a second season. Just a couple episodes of the show had above 500,000 viewers.

I read an AV Club comment with a similar sentiment and I gotta agree. In a season that includes Fargo and Hannibal, James Urbaniak manages to reign over every other show as the devil in human form

He is practically an unseen presence during the season but on a second run you can see a few glimpses of him, the worse one is him not flinching while the studio was breached and A.J and Forrest got shat on during the Revenge review, his reaction almost seemed as if he played some part on easing the guy in. In many ways the editing of the show makes it seem like Forrest is responsible for creating the format and Grant is just repeating his rhetoric back at him as if he is not responsible and is giving him a choice but you have to wonder if all this is Forrest's idea in the first place.

Adding to that, A.J ominous farewell makes it seem more like a hellish cult than a dude who gets too much into things.

Anyway top 5 reviews:

5. Space
4. Revenge.
3.Orgy.
2. There all is aching (Bubble baths)
1. Thievery.

Special mention to: 30 pancakes.

I just started watching this, what a fantastic concept for sketch comedy. Then I watched some of the Australian original and I feel like it's even better, because it actually feels like a genuine news show. The new one is hilarious, but missing that rawness.

The orgy episode was so good. I wonder if they'll ever top the cult episode from the original show, that was incredible.
