Reviews

Matt LeBlanc plays a deliciously outrageous version of himself in this laugh-out-loud comedy from creators David Crane (Friends) and Jeffrey Klarik (Mad About You). Episodes offers a peek behind the curtain at the insanity of Hollywood. You’ll never watch TV the same way again.

Sean (Stephen Mangan) and Beverly (Tamsin Grieg) are a happily married English couple, who are also the successful creators of a hit British TV show. Their life seems complete. That is until a hugely powerful and charismatic US network president persuades them to move to LA to remake their show for American television. He’s full of praise and promises “not to change a thing”.

However, things begin to unravel as soon as Sean and Beverly arrive in LA. They discover that the network president has never even seen their show. To make matters worse, he insists that they replace their brilliant lead actor (Richard Griffiths), an erudite Royal Shakespeare veteran with... Matt LeBlanc! Sean and Beverly are appalled. But the decision is out of their hands. Matt comes on board, and soon Sean and Beverly find themselves in a complicated triangle which threatens to destroy not just their TV show but also their marriage.

An absolutely fantastic series! Ignore the critics and check it out. As others have already said, not strictly a sit-com, but that isn't a bad thing. It feels far more 'adult' than a sit-com - if that makes any sense - and the acting from all three main leads is brilliant. Matt LeBlanc is especially good, throwing in more than the odd reference to Friends and 'Joey' - which, as a masssive Friends fan (don't let that fact influence your opinion of this review) made me smile.

Really, really good show - strong performances, shot beautifully, and great story/character development.

Watched the series on TV and had to get it on DVD, it's funny and the best new series I have watched in ages, so now I can watch re-runs until the next series starts. Lots of my friends missed it so the disc is now doing the rounds. Didn't know if I could watch Matt Le Blanc without seeing Joey, but he and the whole cast were great. If you are offended by swearing then you need to pass on this!!

I've read a number of the negative reviews with interest and am glad I didn't read them before watching this series as they would have probably put me off.

Having watched the show I thought it was funny - well written, well casted, well acted. An interesting idea.

It's a comedy rather than a documentary so yes, a few of the siuations may be a little contrived, the characters may not always respond in true life fashion with odd decisions and over reactions but they do all add to a more entertaining show, after all isn't that the basis of most sitcoms?

Some very funny memorable moments with all 3 actors performing well. Enjoyable, and look forward to Series 2.

I have read some of the contradictory reviews on Amazon and wanted to give my 2 pence worth:)

It is well written and thought out. It shows the difference between Brits and Americans with a real tongue in cheek manner, with how we speak, work and think is cleverly but not stereotypically demonstrated. The "character" of Matt le Blanc is brilliant as he plays himself, playing the lead in a show. He is conceited yet charming, surprisingly honest and apparently unfazed by anything in Hollywood. The dynamic between Sean and Beverly, a successful husband and wife writing duo from England, is brilliant. Stephen Mangan plays the wide eyed, over excited and impressed husband with panache and Tamsin Greig is the level headed and cynic that balances the bromance that happens between Matt and Sean nicely.

There are some darker moments and more serious issues addressed(Matt's drunk moment with his ex springs to mind) as the show rolls along that keep it more grounded and for me, kept me hooked when the show aired last year. The other regular actors lend an outside world aspect to the leading trio with their own stories running along - the tv executives affair with his colleague behind his blind wife's back as an example:)

All in all, well written and great cast.

As a quick footnote: I am a MASSIVE fan of "Friends", I have them all on dvd and have watched every episode a zillion times. I am also a big fan of this show. "Episodes" was never pitched as the same to "Friends" to the public when advertised and Matt le Blanc himself has said people should stop expecting him to be Joey when he acts. So for those who are expecting that and that alone this won't be for you. For everyone else, buy it it's fab!!

Saw the series on television and ordered the DVD to give to our son and daughter-in-law as it was very entertaining, amusing and refreshing! Very cleverly written and well acted. Matt LeBlanc, Tamsin Greig and Stephen Mangan are brilliant as was the supporting cast. Smattering of "Friends" but with a difference - looking forward to follow up series. Beware: adult humour - not suitable for children.

This series far-exceeded my expectations. It was the most amusing thing I have watched in a log time. Excellent performances by all the leads. A bit shocking in places - great television. A definite recommendation and 5 stars. BBC - make Series 2 please.
