Show Summary

"How he solves anything is a mystery." Jonathan Ames (Jason Schwartzman), a struggling Brooklyn writer with a drinking problem, tries to cope with his recent breakup with his girlfriend by reinventing his life. On a whim, Ames decides to emulate his idol novelists Dashiell Hammett and Raymond Chandler by posing as a private detective and offering his services through an online ad. Soon enough, he takes on various cases of unwitting clients, satisfying some while failing others. The HBO original comedy is based on Jonathan Ames' short story of the same name, which is included in his book The Double Life is Twice as Good: Essays and Fiction and in McSweeney's Issue 24. The cable series also stars Ted Danson (Damages, Becker) as George Christopher, Jonathan's magazine editor, and Zach Galifianakis (The Hangover) as Ray Hueston, Jonathan's best friend.

  • Only 6.5,OUTRAGEOUS!!!

    8.0
    I just refuse to believe that this great and refreshing show got miserable 6.5 .

    Great casting,diversity of characters in each and every episode and you don't see that in any other show

    out there.

    Real life situations and every day problems put trough this semi-comedy,semi-noir show always made me laugh, I mean,com on guy who is frustrated with his sex life that his cartoon character has power of super sperm played by new comedy star Zach Galifianakis or character of George Christopher played by Ted Danson,

    great role by the way,an older magazine editor who tried almost everything in life that he is willing to go out with a gay just try something differentmoreless
  • The most original, fun, and funny show on TV

    9.5
    This is such a funny show but the typical television audience just doesn't get the humor. It is about an author and other people in New York's literary world. It is probably my favorite show on TV currently. I hope they will continue to make new episodes but based on the low scores here I have no idea if they will renew it. Ted, Jason, and Zack are all very talented and funny. They are also very convincing in their roles. By the end of the season they have developed a real chemistry and bond and it was wonderful to watch it develop. I just hope they do another season.moreless
