    Its an incredibly warm and quirky show. There's a ton of dark humor and awkward situations but every episode ends on a high note. This show quickly becomes an obsession can't wait for season 2.

    One of the best comedy shows on television. The lead actor is truly exceptional. This show needs to be more popular. The comedy is smart, witty and well written.

    This show offers one of the best portrayals of gay characters on TV without sticking to stereotypes that are not true. It combines both funny and emotional elements and keeps you entertained.

    All the characters are well thought out and quirky in their own way, and Josh is perhaps the most realistic depiction of a gay character currently on TV. I love the kind of humor this show has, and the show really delivers when it comes to hilarious awkward situations.

    I liked this show a lot. It really nails the awkward moments of dating, and the characters feel like real people instead of supermodels reading lines.

    Politically correct, self-indulgent, and saccharine, this snore-fest is more enamored with itself than it is with entertaining the audience. The lead comedian is a third rate wannabe in Australia whose only notoriety comes from trading on his sexuality rather than any actual talent.

    Much of the show’s appeal lies in the cast’s shaggy, naturalistic chemistry, which papers over the occasional imperfect plot turn.

    The pilot episode is more amusing than hilarious, but it's often delicately funny thanks to Mr. Thomas' odd duck character and his reactions to those around him. When Geoffrey (Wade Briggs) hits on him, he's flummoxed.

    Please Like Me, unlike the much-praised millennial comedy "Girls," feels unpretentious and natural with fully-realized characters rooted in reality.
