I really had a hard time enjoying season 2. It seems the majority of reviewers here disagree, but for me season 1 was leaps and bounds better. Hilarious show either way.

This was such an unexpectedly funny show. I loved every minute of every episode. Unbelievably funny and like-able cast. Really a genius production from start to finish.

Showtime is smoking something. Makes no sense that they cancelled this.
