    hooray! I love this show. It’s got the right amount of quirk to it. Plus Zach Galifinakis, Jason Schwartzman, and Ted Danson all in the same show? I have died and gone to comedy heaven.

    I really wanted to like this show. I enjoy everyone in the cast and adore the concept (extra bonus points for its NYC setting). I just can’t wrap my head around the tone or laugh at the ultra-dry “jokes.” I won’t watch anymore.

    I was almost going to give up on this show even though the cast is so good, but then I watched the third ep today and it is much improved over the first two. I’m still not sure where it’s going but for now I’m going to stick with it, especially with hearing this news.

    Thank goodness HBO gives a great little show a second season. Good job HBO!

    This show is awesome. The Jim Jarmusch epsiode sealed it for me. Perfect tone, great comedic timing from a skilled cast. Makes “Entourage” look like the weakest of the HBO comedies now because “Hung” was brilliant as well. Its strange but now the best half hour comedies are all on cable while network still puts out the same unoriginal garbage every year.

    I love this show. The cast is so funny and I have a new crush on Jason Schwartzman. He’s cute, sexy and funny.
