I just started this myself. It's interesting to see Ron Livingston over the line of his usual affable-if-slightly-dickheaded persona.

It's not a bad show, but I'm so surprised that it's so recently made. The vibes are very "cable network in 2005."

I think that vibe comes from this being half a Farrelly brothers project. While sometimes it works, sometimes the jokes are really cringey. The writing is definitely uneven. What makes it watchable is the cast including the supporting actors.

So I liked the first few episodes. But it went south for me with office guy and Cutter. First, his ultra horrible idea-stealing boss. Then agreeing to go one meeting (what? No way.) and then psycho Cutter - tasing, kidnapping, suturing with dental floss? Is it funny? Nope. I was enraged but kept hoping this would resolve and then Sam’s dad. Just no. Wished I’d stopped watching sooner, it really put me in a foul mood. I liked the female characters, all two of them. Not counting rich asshole mom or Cutter’s sleep-like-the-dead mom.

Yeah, I wouldn't be surprised if people bounced off during the Cutter and Tom back half of the season. Sure, Loudermilk is an asshole, and the support group are all kind of broadly painted, but it works well enough for a half hour comedy. But the Cutter plot tended to get too much into the Farrelly's physical comedy, which felt out of place in this show.

Just getting to the Dad episodes, and it feels like it's settling into whatever it winds up being. Cutter I like in a Doakes-from-Dexter vibe, and I guess I'm just going with it.
