A naive romantic goes on a desperate quest for love when his longtime girlfriend dumps him.

Nice and generic synopsis, but this show takes the same old romcom cliches and literal-ises them to the next level. I may have made up that word, but I don't know any other way to explain it. The main guy is a shoe in for the role and the first episode was quite great, many unexpected moments and a lot of laughs.

I'm bad at explaining, this little teaser trailer might give you a hint at what it's like.

Jay Baruchel seems like the default choice for any show/movie requiring an unlucky-in-love unthreatening loser. It must be pretty disheartening to constantly get type cast in that role.

Pretty good first ep, I liked how he started getting the phonecall's and the famous bit all asking him what he did. Very unexpected, and good to see this in a tv show.
Might even try and read the book now.

Wiing and Kiral are you still watching?

Tanaka the Japanese Tentacle Penis Monster was pretty fucking hilarious.

Also loved the Gods of Olympus intervention with Cupid.

Poor Cupid :(

I watched the pilot and it was certainly different to the usual, but I don't think it's really for me. I did like his ex's new boyfriend literally being Hitler though.
