The Curse - Nathan Fielder’s new show on Showtime

Anyone else watching? Promises to be bizarre…

Nope. I find him insufferable. He and his cringe comedy affect. Keep it.

I just watched the first episode. I love it... Emma generally picks great roles. Nathan is surprisingly good.

I keep seeing previews for it on Showtime, but I still have no idea what it's about.

So that's why I don't watch it.

R3, I’ve been watching and I’m still not sure what it’s about! But that’s part of why I know I’ll continue to watch.

My 84 year old mother loathes NF and refuses to watch this one. He is a very polarizing person. I’m not sure I like him, exactly, but he is twisted enough to be kind of intriguing to me.

Ha R4, I love him, I wonder why your mom hates him. I guess he is polarizing, he's not a prick like say, Daniel Tosh but he is kind of...yeah.

R5, she thinks he’s cruel to the participants in his various shows, although this one has no “reality” aspect so it’s a bit different. I tried to point out that those who have appeared on Nathan for You and The Rehearsal were willing participants, whether they were “real people” or actors, which is sometimes hard to tell, but she thinks he lacks empathy.

On this show it seems like his own character is as big an idiot as any.

Ok, I’ve watched the first three episodes and I am still not sure what I am watching. I keep watching but am not sure what exactly we’re supposed to be waiting to happen.

That said, I keep watching.

It’s so strange that it could go anywhere.

I keep watching too, R7, but this show is going nowhere fast. You keep hoping for something to happen, but nothing does.

I watched the first three episodes on Showtime yesterday. It hooked me right away.

It's hilarious, bizarre, uncomfortable, sad, and tragic all at the same time. And Emma Stone, someone I've never really been a fan of, is excellent in it.

Can't wait to see where this is all going.

Bored to death and barely made it through Episode 1. Now I know why Nathan Fiedler is so overrated.

The Safdies have always sucked.

I just want to know if that was really Corbin Bernsen's puny cocklet.

He's just too hot a man to have one that small.
