Did anyone give this a shot last night? Has some potential.

Were they able to fit all of Minnie Driver's head on the screen?

I saw the first episode on replay this past weekend. Pretty good start.

Eddie Izzard and Minnie Driver play a Mom and Dad with 3 kids and the whole family is part of a gypsy clan who travel the States and con people.

Izzard was just spectacular in the first episode and Driver was pretty good also playing the whacked out Mom.

Based on the first episode, I see this being in the rotation for a while.

NOTE: Weird that Izzard and Driver (from England) play American trash, but they do it pretty well.

Weirder that he's able to do it while dressed as a man.

True. Every time I see him on screen I think of the first time I saw him on TV. I think it was an HBO comedy special or something like that and he comes out on stage looking like a $3 hooker who's been awake for 5 days. I don't remember anything about his stand-up act, but I do know that the guy can act.

Dressed to Kill is fucking hilarious. Its one of my favorite stand-ups of all time.

I also thought he was one of the highlights of "My Super Ex-Girlfriend"... he and Rainn Wilson made it a moderately enjoyable dumb-movie.

Really enjoying it so far;

one part Six Feet Under, one part Carnivale, with a sprinkling of Weeds.

Gotta agree - but I've never seen Carnivale, I'll take your word for it.

I only saw the first half of the 2nd show and will catch up to it later.

I'm trying to figure out if the youngest kid is a boy or girl (sounds weird, but I can't figure it out)

it's a boy :lol:
they discuss his crossdressing in the first episode,
saying "it could be worse, he could be on drugs"

(which is funny on it's own considering Minnie Driver's character)

Minnie Driver's character admits to shooting crystal meth in prison -- that is pretty hardcore.

That's actually an outtake. Driver was just chatting during downtime.
