When Showtime was touting the new comedy "Episodes" for its winter line-up, a lot of the pre-press and advertising had to do with Matt LeBlanc. While I like LeBlanc, his presence in a new show was neither a particular draw for me nor a deterrent. However, I did tune in to give the program a shot and was pleasantly surprised that instead of purely a LeBlanc vehicle, "Episodes" featured a smart and savvy ensemble of actors in a delightful (and frighteningly believable) skewering of the entertainment industry. Most specifically, the show targets the creative and borderline insane process behind bringing a new television program to air. This surprisingly intelligent foray into scathing satire may not be the best program on the subject I've ever seen (try the uncomfortable awkwardness of "The Comeback," the blistering ruthlessness of "Action," or the of-the-moment imperative of "Grosse Pointe" as other possible candidates), but it is pretty on-the-mark!

What is intriguing, and quite appealing, about "Episodes" is that it combines the outrageous rudeness you might expect from Showtime with a droll British sensibility more in line with BBC. In fact, it is precisely this dichotomy that fuels the entire premise of the program. The season revolves around what happens when a successful and critically acclaimed British sitcom is adapted and Americanized for a stateside audience. The actual leads of the show are Stephen Mangan and Tamsin Grieg as the married co-creators of said sitcom who are enticed to Hollywood to helm the new interpretation. Playing as fish out of water comedy in earlier segments, the couple soon realize that compromise and capitulation are key in this new environment.

Friends told me about how wonderfully acted and written this show was. And they were so right. Funny, with characters you can relate to and stories that make the half hours fly by. In fact, I dare you to try to only watch one. Like a terrific novel you just don't want it to end. Matt leBlanc totally deserved his golden globe and the supporting cast is equally gifted. Bottom line: smart, fun great television.

I LOVE Episodes! It is smart, funny, clever and not your usual lame comedy formula show. Matt Le Blanc is hilarious and the two leads are perfect. This show is addicting. Prepare yourself for a marathon.

Ran across this during a free weekend of Showtime and HAD to see the rest. Hysterically funny, with Matt LeBlanc playing himself as a caricature of himself. Delightful. (Tip: search with "Matt LeBlanc". Searching "Episodes" turns up every "episode" of every series in the database. Giant waste of time.)

As a huge Friends fan (I still watch every day), I couldn't resist watching this show. The reviews have been phenomenal and rightly so. Matt LeBlanc is amazing, as well as the rest of the cast. I recommend if you're a Friends fan, a LeBlanc fan, or just a fan of great comedy!

I love, love, love this show!!!!! I'm so glad I discovered it. What a brilliant little comedy gem. I was disappointed it's not on Prime or Netflix yet so more people who don't want to specifically purchase every season can discover it. I hope Showtime will allow it to be streamed because I'm stunned by how few people have ever heard of it. The best way to describe it is dry British humor plus Entourage plus Joey from Friends. It's absurd and ingenious and...."Pucks!" (You will only understand that if you watch it!)
