    I hope this is sustainable. First two episodes were seriously laugh out loud funny, which is a rarity.

    Third episode also tremendous.

    If you like baseball and comedy this is about as good as it gets.

    ...And Amana Peet. She's lost her Whole Nine Yards fastball, but she's developed into a pitcher instead of just a thrower.

    (See what I did there?)

    Hank Azaria is so talented, his agent is not doing him justice.

    Annoyed with IFC at the moment. I missed this week's episode, so signed up with IFC to view it. I have FIOS, but when I sign into IFC and then put in my FIOS logins, I keep getting sent back to, "you must sign in to view" over and over again.

    Yes, I'm too cheap/principled to pay $1.99 for it when I'm supposed to get it for free.

    Saw the first episode so far. I laughed. The fat players bit was funny. My wife just didn't get it.

    Each episode has gotten a bit worse and it gets dark fast.

    The latest episode with Joe Buck is a pretty good comeback.

    I have seen all the great reviews this has gotten, I watched a few episodes and thought it was painfully bad. What am I missing?

    The first episode was hysterical, the second one very good. However, it gets more difficult and more painful to extend that premise with each successive week. There are moments, but too few and far between. Also hard to buy into Amanda Peet's character being into Brockmire for anything other than one drunken night.

    But they have the same level of functional alcoholism.

    I believe E8 was the season finale. If so, this season went out on a high note. After E1, this was probably the 2nd best episode of the season.

    I hope the dude in the untidy whities made bank on that role. I see gifs in his future.

    Just got in to this a few days ago flying from Atlanta to Salt Lake City. Caught episodes 1-4 on the flight, currently watching the rest of season 1.

    There's some real good stuff in there.

    Agreed that this doesn't have legs to go more than 2-3 years. No matter how far they go in to the small town gal against the big oil company plot, eventually they have to jump the shark.

    Favorite part for me was Brockmire recalling the hooker and the blow in the bathroom and the kid asks was he on the john or ON the john.

    Brockmire is back on! First episode was pretty good. I find this show hysterical.
