    Not sure about this one. Lots of gratuitous sex, more for shock value. The two lead characters are dislikeable. The interjection of a young boy moving across the street from the male lead smacks of "About a Boy" (the movie, not the TV series. Will continue to give it a shot, but need something redeemable fairly quickly.

    The show contains some clever bits and "Gretchen" is v. attractive. But... they could well have called the pilot episode "All About F**king," since that's pretty much what it is about. The other problem is that it's not very funny, a major downside for a comedy.

    The leads are holes but it's played to be a strength, so it kind of makes you turn your head and go "huh?" And though they're unapologetic holes there are glimpses of their desire to be "normal", so that's an interesting premise to follow.

    Gretchen and Jimmy's story, which acquires surprising emotional weight as the season progresses, is highly addictive on its own merits.

    The show grows ever more confident each week. As Jimmy and Gretchen grapple with their relationship, their conflicts seem authentic and not contrived.

    It should be noted that Geere and Cash are very, very good--they just need better material. (Unfortunately, the rest of the cast, even though they don't get much work, grind the show to a halt--an almost insurmountable problem except that Worst's penchant for trying to shock with crassness is really the stumbling block here).
