Married (FX) - Season 1 Thread - Thursdays starting 7/17/14





New comedy series Married premieres Thursday, July 17 at 10 PM ET/PT. Married is a half hour comedy about being miserably in love. Russ (Nat Faxon) and Lina Bowman (Judy Greer) can barely remember what life was like before kids, debt, and suburbia rained on their romance -- but every once in a while, in between the arguments about their declining sex life and who's driving carpool, they are reminded what drew them together in the first place -- they're best friends. Married was created by Andrew Gurland (The Virginity Hit, Mail Order Wife), who wrote and directed the pilot script and serves as Executive Producer/Showrunner, alongside Executive Producers Paul Young and Peter Principato. The series is produced by FX Productions. FX has ordered 10 episodes of Married for its first season to air Thursday nights at 10 PM ET/PT.

PRINCIPAL CAST INFORMATION:
Brett Gelman as A.J.
Jenny Slate as Jess
Judy Greer as Lina
Nat Faxon as Russ
CREW INFORMATION:
Andrew Gurland as CRTR/EP/DIR (Pilot)
Paul Young as EP
Peter Principato as EP

I'm still kind of confused why this and You're The Worst aren't on FXX. I know FXX still doesn't have much exposure... But wasn't the whole point of creating that channel to brand it as the comedy side of FX? And FX was going to focus solely on drama.

FX is intended to be the launching platform now that FXX is the Always Sunny Simpsons channel.

Looking forward to this. My wife watched Ben & Kate and was disappointed when it was cancelled and I have a crush on Judy Greer so we both win!

My wife and I thought it was great. The last show we both really liked was Happy Endings so I guess this will be doomed.

Going to check this out for sure. Lord knows we saw enough of the previews for it during the entire season of Louie.

As a married man, this show hit home all too well.

I found it pretty funny. Some good lines in it. I'll continue to watch.

The best part was the framed sonogram picture in that chicks house.

Really enjoyed this... much more than I had expected to. It managed to be edgy and 'wrong' without making the characters unlikable assholes.

I've disliked Faxon in other things, but I liked the pilot here even if it wasn't laugh out loud funny to me.

I'm curious because FXX launched as "more comedy focused" and planned to "have 4 original comedies, with the number rising to 6. Gradually, FXX will add drama and late-night programming."

Currently, they don't have much going on. They have Wilfred... and a bunch of reruns. They don't really have an identity. Legit was cancelled... I'm surprised they haven't moved Archer over to it yet. All I'm saying is I don't understand why they created the channel, moved their flagship comedies to the other station, and aren't creating any new content on that "comedy" channel.

I guess they are just going to stick with being eventual The Simpsons network...

Just seeing those choppers on the commercials turned me off from watching the show. Reminded me of Jerry Sandusky's teeth.
Fix that shit.
