Has anyone watched Maniac yet? It sounds like it could be interesting.

I want to watch it
But I REALLY hate Jonah Hill, so I probably will not.

I agree, but think that Emma Stone counteracts that.

We've been watching Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee--

I suggest Kate Mckinnon, though it might just be I was studying and stressing over CMS all day.

Much more obscure recommendation:
The Could’ve-Gone-All-the-Way Committee

It's a fake Japanese talk-show thing where a guy discusses a date that he went on a long time ago. At some point something goes wrong with the date. Then the job of the 3 judges is to decide whether, if things had gone differently, could the guy have gotten laid?

For being Japanese, it's relatively low key. They spend much of their time seriously discussing counterfactuals and random evidence like the path they chose to walk or the lighting of the hotel. So you aren't really laughing out loud-- just weirdly entertained.

Got through episode 6 of Maniac and couldn't take any more. It doesn't spend enough time on the interesting plot lines, and spends way too much time spotlighting Jonah Hill's poor acting.
