    If you guys haven't checked out Legit yet, you have to give it a try. It's funny as hell, but not in a conventional sitcom way. And Jim Jefferies is brilliant. Legit | Thursdays 10:30

    Thanks for bringing it up here. I have been praising it on the Fx thread, but not everyone gets there. This show deserves a bump, so...thanks. And '50's dad was friggin hilarious.

    I watched the first episode and thought it was decent. So far it has been taken directly from his stand up act.

    I wonder if it would be even funnier without seeing his stand up act before the show? I think as it branches out from his stand up stuff into new stuff will be where it gets real good.

    It's a great show - I haven't laughed out loud at a show in a long time, but when they were video chatting with the indie chick with the tattoo on her back I was dying.

    Well the show is much tamer than his stand up act so that might have an effect. I remember the Drew Carey show was the same way, where the first season contained alot of his stand up.

    It does draw on some of his routines but it does soften the edges. The stuff with Qualls is actually really sweet. As far as a standard comedy, it's a lot like Louie in respect that it is not at all traditional. I just hope it doesn't suffer from the comparisons. It's a lot simpler and less pretentious than Louie is. Kindofa weird vibe...I have felt uncomfortable as much as I have laughed, so yeah...overall I think it succeeds. Jefferies and the rest of the cast are charming and pretty easy to like so that helps. Couldn't believe the mom is Mindy Sterling from the Austin Powers flicks. Like her, hope they give her more to do.

    I wonder if they will do a flashback episode where they find the vibrator in the garage.
