    I saw it and the 2nd episode, as well. Some great potential there...Schwartzman is fun to watch.

    I have to say though, I have really grown tired of the religious innuendo and pointed conversation that has to creep into so many series now...Do we really need to have this in series?...If it continues in that vein, I will definitely tune out.

    I've just seen the first episode and it was ok. Too short maybe and the supporting cast seemed pretty pointless. The girl playing Galifianakis' love interest was only in one scene at the very end and she's by far the most likeable character, what isn't exactly good. The whole case was also solved way too quickly, but I guess that it isn't a big concern in a pilot epi. But, yeah, I'll continue to watch the show.

    Interesting and quirky, but really not that funny. May check out a few more episodes. (5/10)

    Really thought Schwartzman was annoying and I'm a fan of his. Thought this would be edgier... it's just turning out to be clumsy and unimaginative. The 2nd episode will be my last.
