    It starts tonight in the US and airs tomorrow at 22:00 on BBC2. Here's the trailer.

    It's meant to be pretty decent, not amazing but FARRR better than Joey (not that that's hard as Joey was a shite show), and it will be nice to see Matt LeBlanc in a different role.

    Yeah - been seeing the trailer for the last while and wondering if it's worth dipping into...

    Much more interested in Stephen and Tamsin to be honest! Will be watching.

    I will definitely be watching this.

    I loved Stephen and Tamsin together in Green Wing so looking forward to see their relationship in this, and I want to see Matt in a new role.

    It was fine as a piece of gentle drama comedy, it was like The Trip. Don't expect laughs a minute. I like that LeBlanc is sending himself up, (though he pretty much did that in Friends too - a crap actor playing a crap actor!).

    I was expecting better but I think it will hopefully improve as the series carries on.

    Yer, it was nice. A few decent laughs , and Richard Griffiths was good. I assumed the opening scene would be where the series ends as it's only a 7 episode series.

    I thought the second episode was much better than the first actually. Matt LeBlanc is actually really decent in this ... but it's still srange hearing him swear.

    I agree - this episode was far better.

    Loved when the big boss of the company was making gestures while his blind wife was talking at the table

    Agreed, much better! The writing for the most part was really quite sharp! Loved her outburst at the end, and I LOVE the Karen/Carol (which is it?, both sound British!) character (the one sleeping with Merk)

    'It's got Merk totally excited about the show again'
    'When did he go off it'
    'NEVER!!'

    Her/the American's attitudes and lies are just great!

    I agree Adz, Carol (I think) is brilliant! Loved Tamsin's rant at Wallace at the end, I watched both episodes back to back and the second one was better. It's not hysterically funny but clever and amusing.

    I am so glad this is improving - the third episode was great.

    Loved Matt's line at the end with Tamsin,

    'My eyes are up here.. I'm not a piece of meat'.

    Thrid episode was decent. Wouldn't mind seeing Matt's third arm.

    I love Carol ... and that other woman who works at the company. Can't remember her name - but the actresses facial expressions and line delivery are hilarious.

    Haha! I also love her... They seem to have taken a few people from Green Wing - she definitely played a love interest of Guy in that.

    One of my favourite episodes so far - very well done. The trio work very well together and generate some hilarious comedy!

    It's weird to think that we've just seen 4 of teh 7 episodes. I wish it was a longer series.

    Beverley really irritates me. I saw that kiss coming a mile off but it was very well done.

    Carol should get a spinoff - I love how much she lieks to talk about herself.

    Yeah it was always obvious that Bev and Matt would end up getting it on! Hope the finale is good.

    Such a short series. A fairly predictable ending but at least it leaves it open for another series, which is likely to happen as it's been sold to 183 (or thereabouts) countries worlwide.

    Loved the fight between Matt and Sean. And some quality lines in the episode, and some good Carol screentime!

    That was the best episode of the lot! Really funny! I hadn't realised it was the end?! It didn't seem very endy.. they just got their show commissioned, I thought it was gonna be an American length series!
