Hello Ladies (HBO)

Thread Starter 
Aired the 3rd episode last Sunday. I am really enjoying this show. Steve Merchant's height and accent only add to effectiveness of this character. Really funny. The first episode is available on youtube:

And the ending credits song too: hadn't heard "kiss you all over" in maybe 5 years.

damn great show. 1st episode was harsh, funny but i had to stop it a couple times to exhale during some of the "awkward" scenes. episodes 2 and 3 are better so if youre into any of previous gervais, merchant work youll also like this. and damn i love the soundtrack

Guess what this Casanova's got planned later? He's taking her out in a bloody limousine.

My fiance thinks I'm obsessed with the show. In the scene on the bench near the Hollywood sign - just Merchant's face with those glasses and grin is hilarious.

Just watched episode 4. great writing in this episode, love the story and the way each episode ends with a melancholy feeling, provoked by the perfect music selection.

Really hoping this show gets picked up soon

Very good show. Cringeworthy watching that makes you care about the leads is hard to do.

episode 7 may be the best one yet. typical cringe inducing scenes but with a few redeeming scenes. i guess you could call it a breakthrough for stuart

My brother keeps recommending this show. I'm going to give it a try. I like Merchant on the Ricky Gervais Podcast.

Related: I had high hopes for "Derek" by Ricky Gervais but wasn't that into it in the end—though it was awesome to see Karl Pilkington acting.

Love the show. It's one thing to have a really well written show, but it's another to have a really well written show that flows so smoothly that it never feels "over-written" if you know what I mean.

Going back and rewatching episodes makes you fully appreciate the writing.

It's hilarious and cringe-worthy like Curb Your Enthusiasm but with a large dose of empathy and a really nice study on modern loneliness (I.e. constantly connected yet alone).
