Episodes Season Two Premiere Review

Just when you thought it was safe to write a comedy show in L.A., Showtime's Episodes returns for a second season of showcasing that nothing is ever safe in Hollywood. Not even your dignity. For the uninitiated, Episodes spins the tale of a British TV writing couple Sean and Beverly Lincoln (Stephen Mangan and Tasmin Greig, respectively), who are wooed by a TV exec named Merc Lepidus (John Pankow in a role that oozes with enough slime to jam a Ghostbuster proton-pack) into creating an American version of their hit UK program, Layman's Boys . After moving to Los Angeles, the Lincolns discover that not only has Lepidus not seen the original show, but that the network wants to change it completely and put Matt LeBlanc (as a Golden Globe winning, fictionalized version of himself) as the lead star, much to the couple's dismay. To say that "hilarity ensues afterwards" would be an understatement as Matt LeBlanc changes the couple's lives for the worst, professionally and personally. Read More...

The belly laughs are still there, to be sure, but the characters, their relationships and the performances by the cast have grown much deeper and more subtle. If Season 1 was an exceptional piece of work, this new batch of episodes takes things to a whole new level.First, though, a brief review, for those who didn't see the first season -- and apparently, there were a lot of you.PICS: Summer...
