A skewed but accurate view of Hollywood
Episodes is a great series that exploits the business of which it involves. Written by David Crane and Jeffrey Klarik, you get exactly what you expect. Another Anglo-American series that will be a success. The casting of Matt LeBlanc as himself (but in a more exaggerated way) is perfect. Worth a look!
Episodes - it
I read somewhere that this show would have benefitted from a 'double episode' opening - and I think that is right. The first episode is very much a 'scene setter' and it really gets into its stride in episode two (why the delay in that appearing for the series pass?) It is well-written and entertaining (really can't see where 'witless' came from as a comment.) Give it a go.
Was pleasantly surprised..
