    Late to the party on this. I'm through seven episodes and enjoying it for the most part. Some really funny sequences. I really like the Easter Sunday brunch and the running gag with the crickets when the adopted twins game to visit. And Martha is a real gem.

    Anyone else watching S2? I'm through the first three and still enjoying it quite a bit.

    A 'different' and very quirky type of comedy show and I am still hooked.

    I didn't care much for the gang plot, so very glad to see the show refocusing on the main characters. Louie Anderson may even be better than last year. Brilliant.

    Yeah. He was outstanding in the latest one where she goes to the Reagan library with the father of one of Chip's train-hobo gang.

    Louis is a natural in the show. S/he does a fantastic job with the Chip and Dale. He should get another Emmy.

    It's the kind of thing I should like, but I did not. Just one of those things (like Breaking Bad being the type of show I should not like, but I did).

    Love the season so far. Started slow with Chip's exile but Louie Anderson as Christine Baskets has truly become a character for the ages. As the character deals with self-image issues, addiction, family regrets and now finding love , we witness on-screen how crappy life can be, the strength it requires to survive and our weaknesses facing the battles. To see Anderson portray this is an real privilege, the pathos is heartbreaking. The series stays with it's absurd universe of clowns, twin brother DJs and other bizarre characters but it remains rooted to a Cassavettes-like truthfulness. Just want to bump this up so people can be reminded about this great show. Only two eps to go, the finale is the 23rd, but good new it was renewed for the 3rd season.

    I just finished season 2. I love this show. It's not comedy, it's not drama. It's just like real life, where one tries to put some humor in tragic or miserable situations. Christine and Martha are great characters. And I could't stand Galifianakis but I like him here.

    I'll watch anything with Galifianakis in it. It's not The Hangover, but he's great in this role.

    I especially love Louis Anderson as Mama Baskets. He should get an award (almost) every year he's on the show.

    I was going to post this in the "other" thread, but couldn't find it.

    Yesterday, and just now, Baskets will return on January 23. They're playing promos for it on cable channels.

    Wife loves the show. to me it looks like bad 3rd rate show with nothing redeeming. The episodes where the cats get loose and the do some gag about cats name Ronald Reagan and calling its name non stop when looking for it that just got annoying

    just not much good to say about the show. louie anderson looks like louie anderson playing a woman but he looks like louie anderson so its not that big of a stretch.

    the show doesnt know what it wants to be a comedy or dramaedy.

    Do you like Zack G's comedy in general? Or Louis Anderson? It's a quirky comedy that isn't for everyone, that's for sure. But I personally think it's a good show. It's another good escape from the day-to-day world of reality. If you don't like it, that's fine, and you know it. But, I really enjoy the quirky humor.
