Breeders (FX) -- S: Martin Freeman, Daisy Haggard -- premieres 3/2/20







FX’s Breeders is an uncompromising comedy that explores the lives of Paul (Martin Freeman) and Ally (Daisy Haggard) as they juggle full-time careers, aging parents, a mortgage and the unenviable curveballs of parenting their young children. When Ally’s estranged father appears on their doorstep, the family essentially takes on a third child but this one comes with baggage and opinions.

Premieres 3/2 on FX - Next day on FX on Hulu.
10 episode first season. The premiere will consist of two episodes.

I like both leads, so I'll be watching this. I recently finished Daisy's series, Back to Life, and enjoyed that.

Daisy Haggard used to kill me on the show "Episodes". She always had laugh out loud moments. Will watch this.

Didn't FX do this show a few years ago? It was called Married.

I'm the opposite. I couldn't stand anything her character did on that show.

I dunno... a show about the aggravation of having kids. Even if you toss in the excessive swearing, etc - it feels like it's treading very familiar ground.

I was surprised by how "heavy" the show felt, -and even I was a bit put off by hearing the "f" word in pretty much in every sentence. I guess Michael McKean is "The American" for this show.

Watched episode 1. I definitely laughed at some scenes, but something was clicking. Maybe it was the pacing and the flashbacks. Iíll check out another episode or two, but right now itís not grabbing me out of the gate.

I enjoyed both episodes. Some of the swearing did seem a bit forced, but no biggie.

I'm in for the series.

Anyone else still watching this?

Tonight's episode was good.

I just learned of this series this past week. On the fifth episode of S1, and I love it so far. Martin Freeman is great in everything IMO.

Finished S1 Tuesday night. Still think it's a fantastic show. Wasn't expecting it to have such a serious tone at times. The last two episodes were really heavy. Started S2 last night. What's up with the time jump? The kids are suddenly 5 years older. And different actors. Now 10 and 13 years old. If there is a S3, will they be 15 and 18 with another set of actors?

Yeah, it got very serious at the end of the first season. Well done, though.

The new series is good, and yeah, it was a shock to first see the kids.

Daisy Haggard writes and stars in another good show, Back to Life. It's worth checking out, if you get a chance. She's currently working on the second series of that one.

I'm really enjoying season #2. This is truly a great show IMO. And Ava is becoming my favorite character.
