Because S2 has sucked thus far.

S1 was great, btw.

I don't see any difference between seasons 1 & 2, other than the Homestar Runner poster missing from the gay guys' apartment.

I thought the whole Spin Doctors on the Ipod bit was the funniest thing on this show in a long time. It was up there with Tab.

Good to see Bob Odenkirk as well.

I agree; the spin doctors bit and the tab bit are the best thing's I've seen on the show. I think Sarah is my least favorite part of this show.

Actually, I do too! I'd like to see her replaced with David Cross.

I thought Sarah calling the immigration authorities on her maid was really, really funny. I also really enjoyed Jay's gentle comedy.

Here's a pretty good interview with Brian Posehn and Steve Agee on the "Sound of Young America" podcast: http://www.maximumfun.org/blog/2007/...an-posehn.html

I loved the stuff with Brian & Steve (as always), but I pretty much fast-forwarded most of the stuff with Sarah.

I really liked this one. I think the look of horror on Steve's face when he was browsing the iPod was quite appropriate.

It seems like Sarah Silverman is extremely polarizing and a lot of people dislike the show because of their hatred of her. I don't think she's even intended to be the highlight of the show - it seems like more a venue in which she and her friends can play which allows them to shine.

I did prefer the first season a bit, but this one has had some great moments in it as well.

Man, that Spin Doctors stuff was excellent. Those guys need their own show.

Why would anyone who hates Sarah Silverman even watch the show?

I don't know, but I have seen quite a few comments in various places saying that they hate her and that the show is terrible.

I'm not really a fan of hers, but I really like the show. I started watching because of the cocreators and the writers, actually.
