They've put a few more teasers up on YouTube. I think it's gonna be good.

Up to episode 4. Not totally digging it. It takes me out of the story seeing Jason Alexander with such a major role because I can't separate him from his Seinfeld character. And then a gratuitous cameo by John Waters. And then Abe uncharacteristically sounded like a real creep.

So I started watching Season 1 after discovering that I could do that for free on Amazon Prime.

Some thoughts, 4 episodes in:

- the care for late-fifties detail is stunning
- it is a joy, visually
- I really like the guy who plays Lenny Bruce
- the cameo by Wallace Shawn was excruciating, but fun

- Midge: the acting is excellent, she is funny... but also terribly shallow
- the other main characters (parents, Joel, Susie) seem clichéd and one-dimensional to the extreme.

Please, dear fans, do these things change? Should I persevere?

Convince me!

It’s a couple of years since I watched Season One - I’ve just finished Season Four - but if you’re not hooked already maybe it’s not for you. I loved it from the start.

Yeah, just finished Season Four too, loved it. Fantastically filmed and always has a wonderful eye for period detail. Looking forward to the final season 5. Will we see Dylan at the Gaslight ? Will it end with Lenny's death in 66 ?

Also the Magician is pure gold!

Enjoyed 4.5 much better. Susie hiring a secretary was a riot.

I'm curiously underwhelmed by season 4
I feel like the characters are becoming caricatures.
There is gold in the scripts of course, but they are struggling with situations
