Mr. Corman

Just watched the first episode. Why is this a comedy? There’s some attempts at humour but he’s such a depressed character that I couldn’t enjoy them.

I laughed during the "weighted blanket" sequence in the second episode, but other than that, I agree, not funny at all. I do think it's an accurate reflection of millennial angst though, and JGL is very watchable.

I think he’s brilliant nearly too good as I’m depressed watching him. The end of the second episode has me in tears with the old lady at the breathing class.

You will all appreciate… JGL was just a guest on Kara Swisher’s podcast Sway, and at the end she told him she just wants to slap the sad out of his character. 😄 (He did also say, earlier in the interview in response to does he ever get better, just keep watching the whole season.) Overall great interview.

What did everyone think of the song at the end of episode 3? I thought it was…. Random…

I don't think it's funny haha but I think it's funny because I can relate to some of the things that happen to him.  I laughed my head off at him trying to make an appointment with a doctor and all the hassle it took because it is so true to life.

I really enjoyed the third episode with his roommate as the focus. Josh is too draining to watch each episode. I knew that Dax guy was dead the minute his head hit the pavement.

I usually watch this show while having breakfast, but if I'd known that Lucy Lawless would be vomiting in this episode I would have saved it until the late evening.

I found Juno Temple's performance really off-putting. I don't understand what Josh ever saw in Megan or why he's still so hung up over the breakup.

I found ep 7 really fascinating. It’s about how our lives could have turned out a million different ways.

I especially liked the part where it was Josh who had died instead of Logic's character. Debra Winger was fantastic in those scenes.

I've said it before in the Physical thread, but I love that Apple is able to invest in quirky little shows that would never stand a chance on network television.

Josh's early pandemic neurosis was so hilarious!  I loved it. 

It was very relatable, but I thought he was a dick to his roommate. He *knows* the guy has to continue delivering packages in order to make a living and provide for his daughter, so Josh was out of line for trying to make him feel bad about it.

He was also a jerk to his mom, expecting her to bring him all of his meals and snacks while he didn't lift a finger around the house, and he didn't show her any appreciation. I agree that the mom's boyfriend doesn't seem to be a great guy, but it's really not Josh's place to interfere. What his mother said was very poignant about most people not getting a perfect life and making the best of what they do get.
