I watched the second season premiere of this HBO this eve and I really liked it. I liked that it had no real narrative that went through the entire episode except for a beginning piece that something (not sure if it is countrywide or worldwide) has happened and you see how different people react as the show progresses. It has a lot of humor in it. And has a very explicit sexual episode that I think has gone as far as I have ever seen things go (even for HBO). It will be interesting to see how they develop the show. The main character is a pot bike messenger and very likable.

Am I the only one watching this show? I really like it a lot. I wondered how they could possibly keep the plot together as it is centered on a bicycle pot dealer in NYC who goes from one residence to another and the hijinks he encounters on the way. I like the fact that everything is coincidence and fairly subtle humor. There is also a fairly high gay influence on the plot at various times. For instance, in the last episode one of the major character is a drag character who dances at clubs. Any way try it out I think you would like it.

I guess I must be the only one watching this program. It was the finale of the first season and it really is a wonderful show. I guess I really like how it is done very differently than other comedies. The main character (pot dealer) goes in and out of other people's lives so you get involved with characters for short periods of time and just cycle out of their lives. You have to pay attention because a character may come back for a short segment. I think it is one of the best shows of the season.

So, despite the fact that no one else seems to be paying attention to this HBO show ( :) ) it was so weird because last night my worlds collided. Actually I began watching this show in mid-first season (perhaps episode 5) and watched through Season 2. I decided that because I liked it so much I would go back and watched the first five episodes of Season 1. In the first episode, one part of the episode is about this gay guy (basically a twink) and his very overbearing female roommate. At one point he decides to use his Grindr-like app to pick up a guy. The next thing you see is him nude bent over the island in his kitchen and the equally naked guy fucking the hell out of the twink. While you can see most of the pick-ups body you do not see his face. After he cums, and walks around totally naked (you see everything), you finally see his face. Immediately I thought, "Shit, he looks so familiar. Who is that?" The twink then asks him if the pick-up would like to hang/go to a restaurant. The nude pick-up then says that he couldn't because he was in recovery and had to go to a meeting. The twink asks if he can go with him and during the rest of the episode you see the two of them periodically at these meetings. At any rate, finally I figured out that the pick-up was Colby Keller. It was so weird to see someone who I had known (and known very intimately in the porn world) in this other world. But he was really good in his scenes, actually sort of like the personas he tends to play in his porn scenes. Any way it was just weird.

It took you that long to realize it was Colby Keller?!

You mean did it take me until I saw his face, yes. I think that at first all you see is his body and occasionally the very bottom of his beard. Unfortunately I do not find that he has a body (or really even a beard for that matter) that stands out. Then while he is fucking him the camera pans up to his face. That is when I knew he was someone I knew knew from somewhere. I guess because his acting was fairly good in general that it took me awhile (before the scene was out) that he was a porn star. I just could not recall his name. Of course they did not list "Colby Keller" in the credits.
