I'll admit that I don't think CP is a place that would normally appreciate a show like this that's based on 1950s/1960s Jews in NYC. But - it's on Amazon Prime and the second season was just released, and it's the most brilliantly written show I've ever encountered wherever you come from. Smart, funny, EVERYTHING. Incredible casting.

My top five all time that this is trying to break into (as perspective):

Seinfeld
The Wire
Game of Thrones
Black Mirror
24

If this gets one of you gentiles to consider watching, I'll say it's a success.

So easy to hate watch that. . . Sharon is so brittle and Rob is such a pussy. Chris saves that show.

Brosnan is amazing.

The one who is sneaky about it is Rose.

It was a long-running, low-key tragedy that Marin spent all those prime years making good money to play the harridan ex-wife of loser brother on that show.

I thought it was funny and will keep watching, but the show has an annoying habit of bringing up plot points and then, for whatever reason, completely forgetting about them or bringing them up randomly. Characters often randomly change their mind and act differently episode to episode, with no explanation as to what changed(the entire France side plot was a great example).

Really? I thought the Paris bit worked well. It was a little bit unbelievable in terms of the logistics of money and how unbelievably wealthy you'd have to be to accomplish that and shit, but whatever.

There has been some criticism that Rose and her situation didn't change after that little endeavor, but the way I see it, Rose chose to go back to Abe - with the money and lifestyle. And that's the way it had to be.

I think the art classes, while kind of clunky, pointed to the reason why she quit being so passionate about it. She loved the idea of art and living the artists life, until she met girls that were trying to do it. And she "grew up" in a way that the life down that path isn't all roses.

But you skipped over the entire part of Abe ending an episode basically having a nervous breakdown for how rediculous the situation is and then magically the next episode he loves everything, learns French, loves the dog, and generally completely changes his uptight, rigid lifestyle out of the blue. Then they come back and heís basically the same rigid guy as before except he does find rose the job at the university. And thatís just one major thing. How about the entire ďinsulting the other comicĒ plot Line? She gets blacklisted, apparently, except she doesnít but for like 10 minutes of show time, then the comedian hates her so much she sends two guys out to either rough up or kill her manager, except they donít and they warn her to stop doing acts. The manager ignores it and nothing ever comes of it. Itís not even talked about. Oh and then they run in to the guys sent to hurt her weeks(?) later and the other comedian does nothing but...sets her time slot back. Wow. From blacklisting and kidnapping/ possible assault/murder to knocking her timeslot back AND hiring the manager she was apparently fine with killing a little bit ago. Where did the booking manager who blacklisted her go? Who knows. Thereís main points like that and then smaller ones where scenes happen and are never mentioned again. Remember when Abe and the ex-husbands dad split the condo and then it was never talked about again? Like I said, it didnít stop me from enjoying the show, but this kind of stuff does happen quite a bit.
