Anyone else check it out yet?
I dug the pilot, not sure if the story and premise will sustain a series, but anything with Stephen Root in it is going to hold my attention.

Watched it last night. I'm optimistic. Bill Hader. Stephen Root. The Fonz. What's not to like?

Watched the opening episode. Hader (Barry) displayed a personality that could be comedic and violent. Gotta love The Fonz.

It's unique and I'm curious where they're going to go with it. I thought it was really funny at parts, it made me laugh out loud.

Silicon Valley is back too and man, they love to beat a deadhorse. It's the same lovable loser thing every season.

I dug it. I'm shocked that Bill Hader is able to pull off that role but he was pretty good.

Agreed with Silicon Valley. They're still going into the same well but it was still entertaining.

Hader is remarkably versatile. There's a horrible movie by Amy Schumer called "Trainwreck", and while it is exactly that, he is outstanding.

Amy Schumer is kinda like a female Dane Cook. Soon she'll be a distant memory.

Schumer is OK in a very narrow lane, which does not include stand up or anything other than the character she played in that film

That scene in the Chechnian's garage was fun.

I was cracking up during that scene. I'm really enjoying this show, hopefully they can keep it from getting stale.

Paula Newsome plays Det Moss to a T. The scene that showed Fuches getting beat down somehow conjured The Naked Gun and The Pink Panther.

Great mixture of drama and comedy with a little suspense thrown in.

Just started watching it, and I know it probably could use a new thread, but if you like this show, or even if you don't, check out "Jean Claude Van Johnson" on Amazon Prime. Jean Claude Van Damm is playing himself and he is also an assassin. Lots of ridiculous scenes and call backs to his older movies

Yeah, definitely just one of the highlights so far. Root is just fantastic and Winkler as well.

This last episode was great. Loved the stuff with the arrival of the greatest Chechnian Hitman.

Mine too. He's hilarious. Such a contradiction to playing the Penguin's enforcer Victor Zsasz on Gotham.

The look on Barry's (Bill Hader) face when he's killing is classic. He does't have a grimacing look, it's so stoic, unemotional. I'm on board with NoHo Hank. I love his facial expressions and accent.

I was glad to see this episode move back to a more Barry-centric mode. I liked the pervious episode and I love the work of Winkler et al, but last week I felt a like there was too much time spent with the other characters outside the main story line. I get why they are doing that and it's not that it's great stuff. It's just the episodes work better for me when that stuff is sprinkled in rather than being the bulk of an episode.

Did Fuches say hot tub?

Taylor cracked me up.....and obviously NoHo Hank's character is pure comedic genius.
