Storyline

British writer-producers Beverly and Sean Lincoln (Tamsin Greig and Stephen Mangan), have a wonderful marriage and a hit TV series to their credit. Things couldn't be better. Until Merc Lapidus (John Pankow), a Hollywood network executive, gushes over their series at a gala. Merc is certain that a remake of the show will go over well with an American audience. After making the Lincolns a lucrative offer, they pack up and ship out to the States. It doesn't take long for them to figure out that Hollywood is a place where deals are made and broken in the same breath. They soon find themselves holding on tight as creative control of their show starts to slip away from their hands. Merc ultimately dismisses the original star, an elder, distinguished, gentleman, for 'Friends' actor 'Matt LeBlanc', a charming, yet manipulative beast, with a grocery list of demands. Hollywood is not what the Lincolns had in mind, but Sean believes he can swim with the sharks. As for Beverly, she'd rather go ... Written by Jordan Ray Allen

had my doubts
18 January 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

One night, out of curiosity for what the cast FRIENDS was up to now, I visited the FRIENDS IMDb page and found, to my surprise, that Matt LeBlanc was back in showbiz. It was a kind of treat for me, and seeing that David Crane was involved, was the cherry on top. With a lot of enthusiasm I began to watch the show, but with each passing minute my enthusiasm kept dropping and I thought to myself this will be another "Joey". The plot seemed it wasn't that well thought out and I just couldn't get myself to connect with any of the "American" characters. The only saving grace were Stephen Mangan and Tamsin Greig who, I thought, were fantastic.Their acting was flawless and I could clearly see the chemistry between them. They were the only "funny" characters on the show and I just couldn't see the show going on beyond it's first season. I had given up hope and dint plan on following the show any further than the first episode. As the week passed I found myself being curious again and told myself "This is just the first episode. Maybe I should give the show one more chance", and you know what? I am glad I did. The second episode was surprisingly better than the first. Where the first episode just managed to get a few chuckles out of me, the second one had me laughing out loud. The acting of all the involved characters had become more polished, the dialogues were actually funny, and most of all, LeBlanc did not disappoint, not one bit! He was charming, likable, and FUNNY! LeBlanc, Mangan and Grieg, together, were a breath of fresh air. They have great chemistry with one another and they give a superb performance on-screen. I am defiantly going to follow the show from now on and I would like to encourage others, who were disappointed by the pilot/first episode, to give the show another try. It holds A lot of promise.
