LOVE LOVE LOVE this show. I've never seen Olyphant in anything other than The Grinder. But he is delightful, and just steals the show away from Barrymore, who is quite good here. I didn't know she could do comedy, but she's funny, too. I don't know who plays the daughter, but she is just hilarious.

I hope it gets a season 3. This makes a trifecta of enormously wonderful Netflix shows. It joins Stranger Things and Unfortunate Events as my must sees.

Do yourself a favor and watch more of his work. Like Justified.

I would bet real money it gets a third season.

I was going to suggest that of course... but it seemed that poster likes lighter stuff which is definitely not Deadwood . But yes, they should watch Deadwood too.

Looking forward to S3.
Completely agree - I wasn't planning to come back for S2 originally. I just didn't enjoy S1 particularly much, but I'm glad I did. Now I definitely want to see it continue.

I really enjoyed Season 1 and thought Season 2 was even better.

Season 2 definitely figured out the necessary rhythm that a show like this needs.

I'm halfway through S2, and like everyone else here I far prefer it to S1. The kids have really stepped up, Olyphant is great, and Barrymore is doing better than S1.

Good news. Not the best show on TV for me, but certainly worth watching.

Cool. I mentioned earlier when I was partway through the second season that I thought it had improved dramatically. At the end of the first season, I didn't really care if I saw any more. At the end of the second, I was hoping more would be made.

Watched it all today and it remains such a fun show to watch. Also, yeah...part of the fun of watching is knowing it is a quick and easy binge.

I am so glad I stuck with this show after the first season, which didn't really sell me on the comedic aspects at the time.
Loved Season 2 last year, and now I'm up to episode 4 of Season 3 and just ROFLing all over the place.

This definitely ranks up there in my personal top netflix shows - and I'm pretty picky about comedies in general.

Just watched episode 3. I love that they got Alan Tudyk to replace Fillion as decayed Gary.

Nice, I kept wondering who was doing the decayed head - didn't look at the credits.

I loved seeing him, made me sad that Better Off Ted didn't last longer.
