    I couldn’t see a thread for this. Trailer for the final season has been released.

    I thought Season 4 was the show’s best season so far and just an overall great season of comedy so cannot wait to see whether this last run can top it. Tamsin Greig, Kathleen Rose Perkins and (of course) Matt Le Blanc have all been consistently great in their roles so hoping they are supplied with as good material as previous.

    The big question though: Can Matt Le Blanc finally win an Emmy? I didn’t realise until today but he actually has 7 nominations (!) so far without a win and maybe if no clear frontrunner emerges by next year he could get a goodbye hug for a show that the Emmys have certainly loved more that most. It is doubtful (particularly given how his rep has been tainted a lot by Man with a Plan) but you never know…

    Kathleen Rose Perkins has deserved at least one nomination for her work in this. Definitely won’t happen though.

    I am bingewatching episodes now. I feel like he could win as there is nobody that seems unstoppable.

    AN even bigger question though, can episodes breakthrough? It got writing and LeBlanc nominations every year so it had to be close.

    Next years comedy race is going great to be killer though. It’ll be hard for LeBlanc to even get in. It’ll be even harder for Episodes the break through. Not only are most of this years probable nominees for comedy actor and comedy series returning, but we have new contenders. Roseanne will be trying to breakthrough into comedy series, Will & Grace is coming back. In a perfect world The Carmichael Show will be a contender for an all time great season of TV. Broad city would also be a contender in that perfect world. We have new shows like GLOW, Friends from College, Barry and so much more. Next years comedy race is going to be exciting for sure.

    I can’t see any shows that you mentioned other than Will & Grace actually ending up anywhere near contention. That said, I agree that Episodes will struggle to get in just because it will have been 3 years since it was last in contention and the Emmy climate has changed a lot in that time.

    So I went on my Hulu account, where I subscribe to showtime, and surprisingly, the season 5 premiere of Episodes is already on there. I’m watching it now.

    The premiere was serviceable. I should say that I’ve never really loved the show, though. I laughed a few times.

    Am I the only one that is really annoyed that LeBlanc is always placed in lead and Greig and Mangan (the actual leads, in my opinion), are placed in supporting?

    I love Kathleen Rose Perkins so much in this role. I need more of her!

    My grade: C+

    MVP: Tamsin Greig

    I’m less annoyed that LeBlanc always places in Lead as I think he is as equal lead as them but more annoyed that Mangan and particularly Greig are dropped into Supporting essentially for not being as big of a name as him.

    (Also: CAN’T BELIEVE THE PREMIERE IS UP. MUST GET WATCHING)

    I tried watching it, but it was awful. I really don’t know why it deserves to be nominated. Le Blanc might have gotten nominated earlier because of Friends, but I doubt it will happen again. And I’m predicting a snub for series and actor for now.

    The show is so unpopular right now, that it’s been almost 2 days since it was released and there is not one download from this episode anywhere.

    That hurts because I love this.

    I didn’t even know it’s released today. And there isn’t any buzz about it.

    To be fair, Showtime haven’t even tweeted about it despite continuous tweets about the TV premiere on the Aug 20 so clearly they’ve just put it up for whoever wants to find it to maybe build a bit of buzz while still keeping the main focus on the TV airings.
