Not for everyone. But if you have a mind capable of following the incredible pace, sheer wit, intricacy, and pantheon of character interactions in this series, you will be hugely rewarded.
Dreyfus is massively talented and energetic as usual. Any actor who can shrug off the indelible legacy of Seinfeld so completely and efficiently is truly gifted indeed. After just one episode she is completely "Selina" and you never even THINK "Elaine" again!
The cast is consistently brilliant right across the board from the main players to every single lesser role portrayed.
Chlumsky's "Amy" character is a relative rock of sanity (and absolutely adorable) in an ocean of Beltway insanity. This kitten has claws, fangs and a keen, keen mind.
Mike: Overwhelmed, inept, out-gunned and hanging on by the skin of his teeth. Quote about Mike: "Mike has a fake dog he uses to get out of working late. We call it a bullshitsu".
Dan: The Darwinian end-product of millions of years of unprincipled, shameless, insensitive, self-promoting, amoral ambition.
Jonah: A pariah of EPIC proportions with the self-awareness and social sensitivity of a pig. Not just any pig, but a pig that all the other pigs hate as well. Also, deservingly, the butt of some of the most cruel, most caustic and funniest insults EVER hurled.
Gary: Wears his heart on his sleeve where it is consistently stabbed.
Sue: 'Just' a secretary, but a confident, powerful force of nature not to be trifled with.
Kent: The 'autistic lumberjack', cold and inhuman. His heartbeat would appear as binary code. The ultimate straight man.
These are just some of the main characters. Every single other character is a comic jewel to be examined in repeated viewings.
If there were a Nobel prize for comedy, Armando Iannucci (The Thick of It) should be giving his acceptance speech in Stockholm. As far as US comedy serials go, this and 'Arrested Development' stand out as the most brilliant, witty examples of the genre.
Definitely not for the masses though. Keep up with it if you can.
