Held off making this thread since the premiere aired, but now I'm more than comfortable emphasizing just how insane and unbelievably funny this has been so far. This is as stunningly good and varied as the first 5 episodes of any series could wish to be. It might not play to everyone's sensibilities, but wow, if it doesn't feels like a thing of TV comedy dreams to me. (All made even more abstractly perfect by being shot all around my city, abeit pretending to be New York.)

Yeah, I had zero expectations for it, but it is aggressively funny. I'm usually pretty wary of this kind of very decidedly guy's-only-perspective dating humor, but they take the metaphors so far out into the insane that you can see it not as a bitter guy saying "This is what it feels like, amirite, bros?" but rather taking those homespun bitter-guyisms and running them to the ground. I kinda love it so far.
