I posted my review of HBO's “Togetherness” on Friday. Now it's your turn. For those of you who tuned in tonight, what did you think? Too much like “Married” and various other mid-life crisis marital comedies, or did the Duplass brothers' special sauce make it feel like its own thing? How did you feel about the relatively unknown Steve Zissis in such a prominent role? Did Amanda Peet seem pathetic enough, or still too much Amanda Peet to be believable? And will you watch again?

Have at it. I like this one a lot, but don't think I'm going to have time to cover it weekly. With any luck, I'll get a chance to talk with the Duplasses and some other people involved in the show and run an interview or two at different points over the course of the next eight weeks.
