Third post in a row but whatever. I had to go and look it up and see if it really was Portia de Rossi still because is it just me or does that not look like her???

She looks really different. I think maybe she's lost a lot of weight in the last few years.

I could not concentrate at all for like 2 episodes due to Portia no longer looking at all like Portia. It's so sad.. she was so distinctive and beautiful, and now she looks like every other botoxed/plastic surgerized Hollywood lady. :(

I'm four episodes in and am really enjoying it. The high point for me so far is the 'not tipping black people' run in the first episode.

I just finished!!! I thought on the whole it was pretty good, although the Tobias storyline was boring. I hope they make a movie next..

I think it's kind of lost the magic for me. Maybe too much anticipation. Portia di Rossi is just freaking me out. I looked it up too to make sure it was really her.

I've watched it all now :(

I really loved Gob's and George Michael's episodes. Maybe's and Buster's were good too, the rest was ok. I really liked it as a whole and I hope they make another season.

I've read that the show more than likely made it to look like Lindsay had undergone plastic surgery because that is the nature of her character. It makes sense- Lindsay is obsessed with her looks and her mother puts pressure on her and the check to Maeby for plastic surgery suggests that kind of thing.

That's a pretty charitable theory. I don't know how you can make someone look like they've had that much plastic surgery unless they've actually done it. I'm so disappointed - I've always thought Portia di Rossi was so uniquely beautiful and she's ruined herself.

So, about the show itself, I've watched seven episodes so far and it's not working for me at all. Disappointed all around.

Have you seen recent photos of her, though? She doesn't look anything like her character.

I am a few episodes in and not loving it yet. I think a number of the characters look different, especially M. Cera. It's been 7? years since the show was on. I hope they look a little different.
Portia still has stunning comic timing and thank scrod for a teevee show that showcases a funny woman. Many funny women. Scrod bless the funny women.
I really don't like the small scenes with the younger George and Lucille. They have none of the attitude to pull it off.

I found out that it's available on Netflix uk too! YAY I've signed up for a free month just to watch this. (And Dexter!) Now I just need to find the time to sit and watch.

Panders, i agree it's a little hard to get into at first because the entire thing is basically one long episode and everything connects, so the first few are overly confusing and then the pieces start to fit together.

i've watched through episode 6. i'm not finding anything confusing. i'm just not laughing. but i really miss buster, who's barely made an appearance so far, so that might be part of it. and i'm resentful of how pathetic they've made michael. i'm still hopeful that things will turn around, but i'm not as enthusiastic about charging through the remaining episodes as i'd wanted to be.

About 8 episodes in. Definitely not as pitch perfect as seasons 1 and 2 but a lot better than I was anticipating given some of the criticism I've been hearing! I'm probably going to have to watch it at least once more before I make up my mind.

Spoiler: show
The whole Ron Howard in-joke episode about Imagine whatever was reaaaaally boring and who cares except Ron Howard and the entourage of like 500 people who get it. Snoooooorrrrre.

I agree completely. It's still enjoyable though. I'm on episode 9.

The end of this season was far too abrupt. I hadn't realized I was on the last episode and then it ended and the next one wasn't loading. Arrrrgh! Overall I think it was a better season than Season 3 but not as good as 1 and 2.
