Casual (Hulu) -- Series Thread -- EP: Jason Reitman

Marathoned the first season, figured I'd give this a thread.



...Plus I'm not sure how a show with a buck naked Eliza Coupe doesn't have a thread. The show uses its "Mature Audience" rating well.

Pretty solid, well directed, well acted, and some pretty funny bits to offset the drama mixed in. It's about a guy, his recently divorced sister and her daughter. The guy is the creator of a Match.com style site, but generally gets used to casual hook-ups. Produced (and occasionally directed) by Jason Reitman (Juno, Up in the Air, Young Adult), and stars Tommy Dewey, Michaela Watkins, Tara Lynne Barr, and Frances Conroy.

The second season started on June 7th with 2 episodes, an additional episode is added every Tuesday.

I watched season 1 months ago and I liked it. I'll probably wait awhile to start season 2.

Nice to see Xanthippe from Kimmy Schmidt back again (she's looking a lot like Lizzy Caplan these days), making out with girls. Season 2 has been enjoyable so far, much lighter than season 1, and I'm glad this got picked up for Season 3.

Katie Aselton is a nice addition. Vincent Kartheiser's face is more punchable than ever.

Dear thread to myself,

Caught up on Season 2, very good stuff overall if you know what to expect out of the show. Disappointing lack of nudity, but a really good rhythm this time, the tone was akin to Up in the Air. The plotline was standard fare with a hint of depressing.

The casting on this show is top notch, and Kyle Bornheimer was a solid addition.

I'm watching too. I watched S1 "live", I mean I watched every episode the day it was released, or close to it.

But I'm behind right now in S2, probably a couple of episodes behind.

The show is fine. Nothing fancy. But it's short, so that works for me.

I'm watching as well.

I watched S1 about a month ago and have been watching the S2 episodes the day after they air.

It's not earth-shattering, but it keeps me interested enough. Enjoying it.

However, Alex really needs to shave. Horribly patchy and messy beard.

Not sure I love the show, but that Eliza Coupe...not too bad to look at.

Rather enjoyed the season 2 finale, the casual approach to death this show has is kind of refreshing.

First 3 episodes were put up for the debut, still a really enjoyable show. Hans and the end of episode 1 were well done.

Plowed through the final season.

It was a little jarring that it takes place about 4 years into the future with Alex being a father for a few years and Laura living abroad.

It had good closure and the ending was sad.

Did the same over the last few days and I definitely think this final season was the best of the series and everything wrapped up nicely.
