My god this show is freaking hilarious.

The last episode with Will Ferrell was one of the funniest things I've seen in a while.

I've been watching it. I enjoy Flight of The Conchords more so, but the shows are completely different and a bit poorly matched outside of both being comedies.... that said, it has been extremely funny so far as we witness the fall and quasi-rise of Kenny Powers.

"Sure, I've been called a xenophobe, but the truth is I'm not. I honestly just feel that America's the best country and all the other countries aren't as good. That used to be called patriotism."

Wow. Do they have the whole "Redneck Flash in the Pan Closer" mythos down or what?

I can't figure out if Kenny Powers is Mitch Williams, Rob Dibble, or Rod Beck.

I know it's not intended, but Kenny's "love interest" is kinda sexy to me as well.

I'm still trying to figure out if that guy that plays Powers is a stinky actor or if it's just the despicable character played to perfection.

It's a great show, because he just so happens to be a redneck. Instead of force feeding it down your throat every 5 seconds like the whole Blue Collar Comedy thing.

That's Danny McBride. He's a very funny guy.

Danny McBride has every role that I would have if I were an actor in Hollywood. He is funny as all get out! I love both Flight of the Concords and East Bound and Down.

Sorry WMR but that show is bad, bad, bad.

I tried on two occasions to get into it and just couldn't last more than 10 minutes.

HBO seems to really be struggling outside of Entourage lately. Seems like most of there originals are complete swing and misses. Just a few years ago (Sopranos, Six Feet Under, Deadwood, Rome) HBO's original series was can't miss entertainment.

Alright I watched all six episodes over the last few days. I think this show is hilarious. I've thought that Danny McBride has been really funny in the last few movies he's been in and he's excellent for this character. Except of course for the fact that he throws like a spazz, normally that would bother me, but in a comedy I can let it slide.

I haven't seen this show, but I saw a commercial and within 30 seconds I assumed that's who it was about.

It's really not about Rocker at all. I wouldn't even think he was the inspiration, to be honest.

This show is an awkward mix of funny, awkward and sad. But I like it. :thumbup:

Big Love is fantastic, one of my favorites on TV right now with some of the best character actors ever. In Treatment has been huge, and so has Flight of the Concords. True Blood is phenomenal.

So ... :p:

My wife loves True Blood so yeah I see you there. Vampires aren't really my thing.

And I love Bill Paxton but I couldn't get into Big Love.

I am loving the show but I was under the impression that last week was the finale. I don't know why I thought that but it was my belief the show was a 6 episode miniseries.

Love FOTC as well, although season 2 was vastly inferior to season 1.

It was a slow starting show, IMO. Season 2 was better than the first season, but season 3 was outstanding. It's probably not for everyone though.

Jody Hill said they are in talks for an 8 episode followup season.

That last episode wasn't the season finale then, was it? I hope not - crappy ending.

Yes that was the season finale. Originally it was only supposed to be a 6 part series. They are now talking about possibly doing another season.

Well, I sure hope they do. That was a bad ending.

There are two very good reasons to watch that last episode.
