I guess they realized they can't keep romantically pairing Rogen with women out of his league like Katherine Heigl, Elizabeth Banks, Cameron Diaz, Charlize Theron and already previously used Rose Byrne.... ya know, since Seth Rogen looks like Seth Rogen. This time it's only platonic... but I'm gonna guess at some point in the show it'll turn romantic.

This is a series? I'm seeing it's a 10 episode 1st season. Watching that trailer, it feels like a 140 minute Judd Apatow comedy. So Rose Byrne is working on 2 Apple TV shows.

So Rogen is "friends" with what appears to be a divorced mother of 3 judging by that footage. I mean I guess it could be entertaining, but will this have enough story for 5 hours?

Rose Byrne is still super hot. This looks like a more comedic version of Fleishman is in Trouble, but entirely from the Lizzy Caplan character's perspective and with less baggage.

Anyone else check this out yet? I watched the first episode and it was pretty funny. Rose is still hot.

But the Apple TV Atmos track is really messed up. The dialogue was very low and I had to turn the volume up double my normal to hear clearly. I checked a couple other shows and they were fine.

The premise is that Sylvia (Byrne) and Will (Rogen) are friends who lost touch with each other after Will got married. Sylvia did not approve of her friendís choice and that created a rift. Will reaches out to her and we see how former friends try to rebuild a relationship.

There is very little romance between the two and it shows a wholesome view of friendship between a man and a woman. It also shows that sometimes one half of a friendship can grow up & mature while the other half is still stuck in neutral & needs help moving foward.

Finished the first 3 episodes. Enjoyable and quite a few laughs... I'm in.

The Atmos mixes aren't consistent episode to episode. E2 was ok but E3 I had to turn it way up again.

The first episode was only halfway funny. Episode 2 was awesome and they keep getting better. This is really funny.

The reoccurring scooter trashing is hilarious.

I always like when Freaks & Geeks or Undeclared alums pop up in each other's work.

Which makes me wonder why Charlie Hunnam has never re-teamed with Judd Apatow and crew.

Segel wrote the role of Aldous Snow in Forgetting Sarah Marshall for him and he turned it down, which didn't go over well. It doesn't seem like Apatow has asked him to do anything else.

Makes sense, Apatow seems to hold grudges.

I am from this town outside of Denver. It's called Columbine. Have you heard of it?

I feel like I am going to hell for laughing at that.

I fell behind in a bunch of shows... just caught up with this last night. It keeps getting better.

Atmos issues cleared up.

Yeah the finale fell flat. Feels like they wanted to leave it ambiguous in case it didn't get a second season. Did this officially get renewed? I haven't seen any news.

No, it hasn't been renewed (or cancelled) yet.
