    I'm not sure how "out of order" they could even be; we're talking about an episodic sitcom, not a serialized story arc such as Fringe. I doubt that was a factor or could affect ratings one way or the other.

    But it was funny, and funny because it was cleverly outrageous. Lots of folks try outrageous and end up with egg on their face; it's hard to pull that off, and A23 did that remarkably well. The chicks were smokin', too.

    Here's hoping for a summer burn-off (8 more in the can).

    I'm hoping for a summer burn-off too!

    I really like this show as it is outrageously dumb comedy done well!

    If you had actually watched the show you'd know what I mean by out of order. It was totally obvious how they were out of order.

    Agreed, on both counts.

    "Don't Trust..." was simply too hip for the lowest possible denominator audience. It had great writing, it took chances, it was sexy and what was probably the show killer: you never knew what was going to happen next. Dumb folks hate that. Smart folks need their own network. I thought streaming was going to take care of that! RIP B!

    BTW, where can I see season 1, Hulu??

    I agree, it seems "smart" shows don't last long.

    Hulu only has Season 2. Amazon has Season 1.

    Hey, thanks, Runner! I'll chase it down, it's that good.

    Heh, I remember when I suggested you watch it and you seemed unsure it would be worth your time. IIRC

    Now I'm sure! Of all the sitcoms of the last two years, it's clearly the smartest, hippest, sexiest and best-directed. Having lived in NYC, those characters aren't that big a stretch!
