Does this show get better after the first season? I got tired of the wacky, kooky lead actor after a few shows.
I'm gotten into the habit of needing a mildly amusing, but not engaging or stimulating show on netflix right before bed. Psych filled that need over the course of a soul crushing job (later on it would be Burn Notice).
The two best were the Twin Peaks tribute episode ("Dual Spires" Season 5 Ep 12) and the one based on The Hangover ("Last Night Gus" Season 6 Ep 2).
My nickname for Gus would be "Hans McClaine". "He's a great guy, just keep him away from tall buildings."
Oh, and Season 6 episode 3 ("This Episode Sucks") has the world's saddest cameo by Corey Feldman which is worth wincing through.
I was forced to watch four episodes of this out of politeness. The alternative was Chip and Dale's Rescue Rangers.
This show is basically Scooby Doo for adults. The characters are one-dimensional and the plots are ridiculously predictable. The dialogue is occasionally witty, but is smothered in so much banal horseshit that it does not in any way make up for it.
I loathe this show.
Fabio: I suggest QI. I've been falling asleep to that for years. Prior to that, my go-to was a video lecture series titled "TTCVideo - Dark Matter, Dark Energy, Dark Side of the Universe". The guy has the perfect monotone - You can pay attention to what he's saying very easily, but, if you're tired, his voice becomes a blur and he almost never makes any inflection that might wake you. Also, you can learn about cosmology and quantum physics at the same time.
I'll check out Qi for something I'm not crazy about but helps soothe me to sleep.
I call it the Garrison Keillor effect.

I like some formulaic shows, this one was too annoying for me.
