Returning tonight for its second season, Showtime’s popular comedy series EPISODES picks up where last season left off with Brit husband and wife showrunners trying to deal with the collapse of their marriage as well as the collapse of their recently imported television series. Created by DAVID CHASE and JEFFREY KLARIK, this send up of Hollywood and the TV industry stars STEPHEN MANGAN, TAMSIN GREIG, JOHN PANKOW, KATHLEEN ROSE PERKINS and MATT LeBLANC as a very exaggerated version of MATT LeBLANC.
To his credit, LeBLANC plays his part without a bit of ‘nudge-nudge, wink-wink’ and seems to be having fun with the role. Speaking to reporters at the Television Critics Association press conference to promote the series, LeBLANC admitted to being a huge part of the joke in EPISODES but said it doesn’t bother him in the least.
