    In his first series regular role in over two decades, Jim Carrey stars as Jeff, aka Mr. Pickles, an icon of children's television, a beacon of kindness and wisdom to America's impressionable young minds, who also anchors a multimillion-dollar branding empire. But when Jeff's family begins to implode, he finds no fairy tale or fable or puppet will guide him through the crisis, which advances faster than his means to cope. The result: a kind man in a cruel world faces a slow leak of sanity as hilarious as it is heartbreaking. Starring Jim Carrey, Frank Langella, Catherine Keener and Judy Greer. Don't miss the series premiere of Kidding Sunday, September 9 at 10/9C on Showtime.

    I just feel awful about how the media has dragged Carrey´s private life in to the media as it did. I´m not sure if I´m the only one who feels the shows might hint a scene or two about recent press review of his private life.

    In my opinion it makes the show great and adds great humor relating the scenes to the insulting reports about his personal life.

    Go Jim Carrey.. love the actor, dont care about his personal life <3

    I liked it better when it looked like he was going to go away forever.

    Overrated to the max imo.

    its got good, dark humor, serious emotional and psychological elements, good cinematography and direction, and i find it very unpredictable.

    It tries way too hard, in my opinion.

    I saw a couple episodes and didn't like it much.

    Oh thank God. I've liked Judy's boobs ever since adaptation with nic Cage. Would be a shame if cancer got to them.


    Oh, and the person they're attached to as well of course.

    I just finished the first season and it's good. It's really good in a way that television shows never are. Throughout the season and especially during the finale, I was continually amazed that something this poignant and un-sexy made it to a semi-major channel. I kept expecting it to return to a more expected formula, or at least drape itself in the habits of recent anti-hero series like Breaking Bad, but it was fresh all the way through. Had to drive the folks at Showtime crazy. Its emotional and philosophical complexity is of the sort that I'd expect it to be marginalized to Sun Dance's channel at best.

    @Jack V Savage @Bullitt68 @Cubo de Sangre Anyone watch this? It's directed by the guy who made Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.
