The director of The Kings of Summer directed the pilot.

That looks wholly unpleasant.

Somewhat revealing sex scenes.

I thought it was hilarious in a raunchy sort of way. Like the early seasons of Californication.

Liked this much more than Married, and I was expecting the opposite.

^ same here. Pleasantly surprised by both this and Married. I gave the slight edge to this show. Definitely not what I was expecting from the previews.

I thought this was good as well. FX is 2/2 between this and Married.

That is a great call, it is highly reminiscent of Californication. This was a fun episode and I like the two leads, though I didn't think much of the guy's roommate/friend as future comedy gold.

FX pushed past their current standards and practices with the sex scenes. Those would have netted the show an R-rating if it were a movie.

Me... four? Five? I like Judy Greer, but didn't care for Married that much.

Holy crap! That was the most explicit sex scene I've ever seen on basic cable.

In general FX has been on a role with shows. The Strain isn't there yet but their others (Bridge, Americans, Louie, Always Sunny, Legit, American Horror Story, Fargo, etc; ) have all been quality programs.

I also just watched episode 1.

I was pretty surprised by some of the graphic depictions of sex. They are really pushing the limits.

I thought it was alright. The 2 leads don't really have any chemistry, but I guess that's the whole point. 2 miserable people who come together somehow. Chris Geere came across as pretty douchey.

Enjoyed the second episode a lot too, and liking Aya Cash more and more.

Thought the pilot was better than the second ep, still pretty good though.

2nd episode wasn't quite as funny, but there were still a ton of good lines. the discussion about the period was fantastic.
