I knew, even when I requested these forums, that the title of the show would likely prophetize the level of activity on these boards as well.

But I like the show so far. Every now and then you'll read a TV watcher saying something to the effect of, "when those characters were shooting the breeze -- I could watch that for hours!" Well, here's your show. It is a bit skit-like, and perhaps somewhat improvised (within a set framework); thus, some segments hit better than others. (Meadows' and Brammall's faces when JK Simmons was telling his life story were hilarious. And then the subsequent revelation of Sedaris' connection to the story!) Will Ferrell is a little too wacka-wacka for the show (despite the best efforts of his scene partner, Jesse Plemons), but the other actors are awesome. I mean, Amy Sedaris! Tim Meadows! And I have to admit I find Patrick "Russell Crowe-lite, and not just he's also Aussie" Brammall rather easy on the eyes. Online is probably the right platform for this shaggy dog show (although: Comedy Central), and at some point I might find that I've seen enough episodes, but I'm digging this.

Yeah, like the other 2 CBS All-Access shows I've watched, No Activity is good.  But I don't think it's good enough to recommend someone to pay 6 bucks to watch it. I love the interaction between Brammall and Meadows, and the Simmons' story about his affair was indeed the series highlight so far.  After 4 episodes I'm kinda waiting for more actors to jump into the fray to try their hand at this.

Will these things eventually end up on Netflix or Hulu? Cuz nope I don't want to pay for the All-Access but I'm hearing things that make me want to check it out.
