|Judd Apatow's work: you may recognize some faces|
I am using the past tense because we finally finished the show last night. This is making me both happy and sad, but I'll focus on the happy. It's the same satisfaction you get when you finish a good book, only this was a group activity, so it was even more satisfying to finish. I have no doubt we'll go back and re-watch favorite episodes many times. Of the 18 episodes, our favorites tend to be collected near the end, since the show gets off to a slightly clunky start. Within five episodes or so, it really finds its groove. "The Diary" and "Dead Dogs and Gym Teachers" may be my favorites.
Have you watched the show? What did you think? Are there other hidden-gem shows you'd recommend? And what is making you happy this week?
