Anyone else watching? Saw the first two episodes, haven't really made up my mind yet. I don't really find TD all that funny, and the guy that plays the private detective/writer doesn't strike me as being funny enough to carry the show. I did chuckle a few times, will probably watch the whole season and let it play out.

I enjoyed the hipster aspects last season, but there seem to be fewer this time around. I guess we'll see.

My wife really likes it. Danson is the only good character IMO. Schwartzman is a drip. Galfinakis is good when he's not pining for or whipped by his gf. That's too common a theme for his character.

Know nothing about the show so I haven't bothered giving it a shot.

While I don't find TD all that funny in this show (so far), his interactions with Larry on Curb were always funny to me, so he definitely has it in him.

I have to say that this season is much better than the first, a very rare thing for HBO shows. I am surprised they even gave it another shot, but I am glad that they did.

Danson is hilarious. The last few episodes have been priceless.
