Donal Lardner Ward,
At first, I thought this was wonderful. It seemed very honest and funny and shocking-- someone really letting it all hang out, talking at the warts-and-all of sex and being single. But, MAN, did it become a grind. After a while I kept watching just to get to the end, which I figured would be soon. Seemed like about an 8-episode kind of show (but should be about 4). According to the web page at Showtime, it's 15 episodes. That is at least 10 too many. He keeps moving across the country, but the show itself goes nowhere. I guess it's a good illustration of what a book tour can become--same thing, different city and lots of time in a car... But if a book tour is a dull grind, that's not entertaining. After the first episode, I would have recommended the show. After 10-ish episodes, my advice is do not bother. I regret wading in.
