Anyone else watching this?  I'm watching it at Dad's now and it is hilarious.  Jaso Schwartzman, Zach Galifianakis, Ted Danson and a slew of notable cameos round out the whole thing.

Nearest I can tell, Danson owns a magazine that Schwartzman freelances for... and in his free time, he works as a private investigator.

It is really, really funny.  Check it out if you have the means.

yeah, we watched the first season.  nacho hates it because he finds new york types "pretentious" and "ill-suited for reality."  i just love jason schwartzman.  I think I could watch him pick out songs for his iPod playlists and laugh. 

the show is a neat idea, but it could ratchet it up a notch at times.  but a handful of the episodes are really, really funny.

I watched 3 episodes tonight.  Weed and Zach Galifianakis factored heavily into all of them, so naturally I loved it.

Lots of comedian cameos like Todd Barry and Samantha Bee, too.  So funny.  HBO is having a marathon, but it is past my bedtime.

Yeah...it bored me to death.  Though I loved the concept and the actors, I'm just not metrosexual or rich enough to truly enjoy it.

The two words that spring to my mind are "black" and "alternative."

Ugh, the sweater tied around my neck is itchy.
