What do you think? Do you like the Togetherness TV show? Are you glad that it’s been renewed for a second season?
To me, Togetherness is one of the more enjoyable shows on TV. I rate it up there with such shows as The Good Wife. I can hardly wait for season 2. Question: Will Brett be able to save his marriage? or will Michelle leave Brett for David? especially after such hot sex scenes with Michelle and David in the finale. I truly love the show. It is so life-like..
I love this show. We are so happy it has been renewed. It has a great cast and we are hoping it will be on for a long time.
This is an amazing serial! Very realistic, very down-to-earth and so attractive with it!!!
How can be my favorite serial low-rated? I don’t believe!
Love it. A little annoyed that the season ended in march and no new episodes til 2016. Ridiculous ill be over it by then..
Although I do not share ASGG’s general assessment, I would agree it hardly fits the comedic genre. It certainly has hilarious moments, but it has just as many dramatic ones, which is why I love it. These characters are real, with shortcomings and insecurities we can all relate to. To say Brett is a ‘loser’ is sooo off the mark.
I can’t wait for Season 2!
Since the second episod the show is seldom funny and often depressing. Duplass’ character in particular is just a loser. The show is well acted but the only way it could still be termed a comedy Michelle must run away with David in the last episode. I am shocked HBO renewed this “downer”.
