The Jian Yang material usually makes me laugh and then I wonder if I'm a little bit racist afterwards.

I had to quit watching this show after the first season bc it was way too realistic and close to home. I found it hilarious, but it just made me think of work. I've put it in the bucket of "shows to catch up on a few years down the road"

The "Mean Jerk Time" bit is still its best laugh.

I dont know man, I think the manic Jared stuff from that episode, and the Russ Hanneman stuff might be better.

One thing I do like quite a bit is how they're utilizing Big Head. It almost makes me wish he played a bigger role in the 2nd half of season one and in season 2.

Big Head rules. I'm finally catching up on Maron, and his assistant character cracks me up

Yes. For all the laughs I get out of that show, I sort of dislike Thomas Middleditch. TJ Middleton has been a great foil for him, I'm scared his character will be allowed to run amok once TJ leaves.

I've been slacking on this, and I'm just catching up today. This season is going okay, but I do think Gavin and Jack disappearing has been disappointing, so is making Monica a background character. Besides how awesome Jared is (and even though I feel like they've amped that up due to his Twitter following), there's not much bringing me back week-to-week.

Why isn't every episode of this show two hours long? I always want more more more more more more more more more more

This was a great Ehrlich episode. Finally. It's been awhile.

Mrs Wease and I just started this tonight. I had no idea it was a Mike Judge project.

It's funny how The Goode Family never gets mentioned in various articles or interviews on Mike Judge, like he's trying to scrub it from his resume.

While I have always enjoyed this show I've never thought of it as one of my favorites. Maybe if I worked in the tech field.
I am going to miss TJ Miller though, Ehrlich is one of the stronger comic characters on the show. I think the Richard character is supposed to play the straight man a lot times but he's also one of the more lackluster, undynamic parts of the cast.
I know a guy who recently moved to DC that reminds me somewhat Jared, both physically and personality wise.
