EPISODES Preview - Give Me My Remote : Give Me My Remote


January 9, 2011 by  

January 9th is a big night for Showtime.

Not only does the fourth season of CALIFORNICATION premiere, but two promising new shows — SHAMELESS and EPISODES — debut their pilots.

While all of the shows are worth your time, personally, I’m crazy about EPISODES.

The series revolves around a British couple, Sean (Stephen Mangan) and Beverly (Tamsin Greig), who move to Hollywood  after a US network decides to remake their hit British series “Lyman’s Boys.” They’re promised nothing will be changed in the adaptation — but that deal is quickly broken, starting with the original lead actor being recast with Matt LeBlanc (playing an exaggerated version of himself). Sean and Beverly are horrified.

I’ve seen the entire first season of the show and EPISODES is certainly different than the majority of comedies out there. The pacing is not what most American audiences are used to, but stick with the series. The ride is worth it.

Check out a trailer, a “meet the cast” video, and two preview scenes from the pilot episode below!

Showtime has a free preview this weekend, so why not give EPISODES a chance?

Will you tune in to the series premiere tonight?

    I watched last night and was suprised that Matt leblanc is not in the first episode but I thought it was very funny. It is different though. It was kind of confusing because they never really explained the premise of the show “lymans boys” so you do not really care that the british actor did not get the part.

    Oh, my favorites from Green Wing. I may actually have to give it a try.
