I generally don't like television, but I love this show. I only saw it when it aired a few times but I picked up DVDs. Michelle and I finishe the last episode last night and we both agree that it's one of those shows that you get a little sad that it ends, though, it did end well. The show is just so... twisted... It's AWEsome.

I thought I mentioned it a while ago on here and everyone sort of just said, "meh".

I'm glad you got a chance to see it. If you haven't already, watch it again. I promise you'll see more. Off the top of my head, here's one you don't get till second time through:

When Buster thinks he's escaped to Mexico and ends up at the maid's house he finds all of his stuff(Although he doesn't realize it) that the maid has stolen. He looks at his red hand chair and says, "Wow, I never thought I could miss a hand that much"

Anyhow, probably my favorite TV show ever.

I've seen the first season twice. I'm going to hold off on watching it again. My girlfriend and I just finished a week-long AD binge.

Wow, I didn't remember it being that good. I'll have to check it out again, after hearing how psyched you guys are about it.

Tons of rumors going around about there being a movie made. As long as they get the writers and cast, I'm totally on board.

10 new episodes in 2013 and then a movie. Confirmed at least by Jason Bateman and Will Arnett.

Time to work on getting Firefly back.

Did anyone watch all the episodes yet? Are they any good?

Netflix did a new payment model for the Actors. They paid them by screen time per episode since most of the actors in the show have other projects. This way they could do a Jason, Michael or 'Buster' centric episode if all the other cast members were busy.

I'm almost done with them. I think I'm on 11 or 12 maybe?

I think they built on the fact that they couldn't get all of the actors all the time, and their distribution model, and made something really unique. You have to get 3 to 4 episodes in before it really starts clicking at all, and it doesn't really hit it's stride until about episode 6. It's done in a way that I'm confident that those episodes are going to be far more amusing on the second viewing.

Had they had a normal distribution model, they just couldn't have done this. Nobody is going to wait 6 episodes for a show to get "good".

I find it pretty amazing.
