My favorite show of all-time. I can basically act out from memory the entire first season I've watched every episode at least 30 times. Almost a blessing in disguise that it took HBO nine years to give the green light to season 2. It is only a limited four episode run, but so far it has me just as excited as I was nine years ago for every Sunday to roll around to see what Valerie Cherish is up to!! Watch it, and fall in love with Kudrow like I have!

Lisa Kudrow is absolutely brilliant in this genius show. I'm so glad they're bringing it back for another season...nine years later! Welcome back, Red!
