Watched the Pilot last night and really enjoyed it. Looking forward to episode #2.

And while I very, very rarely use profanity in real life, I don't necessarily mind it on TV shows - as long as I know which shows have it. When watching a show on HBO, I know to watch it without my kids around. What I don't like is when I'm watching a primetime show on a major network and they use "questionable words" that are borderline and I'd rather not have my kids hear them. There's many times when we're watching a network show and one of the kids will saunter into the living room on their way to get something to drink and we're caught off guard by the things that can be said nowadays. When we're watching something on HBO, we know to hit pause when they enter the room, regardless.

Oh, and I love VEEP. Right up there with Curb and Arrested Development in terms of laughs per minute.

I'm sure Directv can't wait to get their hands on your unit.

Nick, the second episode had 'Sports Night' feelings written all over it. The pandemonium in the newsroom trying to throw everything together, the bar scene afterwards.. Both my wife and I noticed it right away.

This show definitely "has" me.

Watched the pilot last night and enjoyed it. I'll keep watching until I no longer like it.

As for the profanity police... They're just words...
