    My husband and I have watched each show at least 20 times. We just keep watching them over and over again, laughing at things we’ve heard before and finding little things that we missed. Please renew this series. Family Tree is hilarious! Everyone does a fantastic job. Make a movie, start the series again right now. Please don’t make us wait. This time do at least 16 episodes. We just found a little monkey puppet that looks like Monk to send to our brother in law for his birthday. He and my my sister in law love Family Tree too!

    our family, well at least 3 members of it, feel that the comedy family tree is like a layered onion each time you peel it another wonderful layer reveals itself…please dont make us keep seeing this years episodes for the 100th time

    Please, please renew Family Tree for more seasons. I loved this show and thought Chris O’Dowd and Nina Conti (well the whole cast, actually) did a phenomenal job…the show was so smart, sweet, and just plain funny.

  4. Amy M says

    I absolutely loved this show! I’m hoping they’ll make a season 2. I thought the show was humorous. I watched all 8 episodes in 1 day.

  5. Eric Lund says

    Please continue this series. Possibly the funniest show I have ever seen. Thank you for letting O’dowd and Conti shine in this wonderfully charming, innocent, and hilarious comedy!

    Absolutely love this show. I will be very disappointed in HBO if Family Tree is not renewed.
    Family Tree characters are uniquely quirky and loveable; Christopher Guest at his very best.
    Please bring it back.

    This show is so funny and clever. We love all the Christopher Guest movies and this was really just as good as best in show (our favorite). We watched it on demand in 2 sittings! Hope there is another season.

    My entire family absolutely loves this show and my daughter and I actually found ourselves a bit teary eyed at the finale. It is quirky, fun, intelligent, poignant and hilarious. I am hoping HBO gives this delightful series more time to attract a larger audience. There are a lot of delightfully nutty folks out here who function well and who are both capable and harmless – like my family – who would happily find a home in “Family Tree”.

    We have never watched this show on Sunday nights. We watched it in three separate sittings on ON DEMAND. Our daughter watched it online in two sittings. We all love it but have never watched it when it was scheduled. That is why ratings do not mean anything. Many many people view whatever they want whenever they want. Especially in the summer.

    We are big Christopher Guest fans and LOVE this show. Love all of the characters. Want to see more!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Totally agree, Lola K. I am really hoping they bring it back. Love the show!! I thought we were going to die laughing when Monkey told Tom, “she’s sleeping. She can’t come to the phone.”
    Hilarious!

    I love Family Tree and you cannot leave us hanging about Tom and his search for love idenity and whatever!! Love the weird, British intelligent humor! Please, HBO think outside the box and keep this love affair going!!
