A marvelous character study and Showtime's best series in years.

I'm going to keep watching this show, with its wizardly director and mythopoeic lead actor, because I'm confident that at some point it will drastically illuminate the nature of existence-yours and mine.

Bold, provocative and at its core heartbreakingly endearing, it borrows from the original mold -- and then breaks it.

Langella, in particular, is remarkable as a man who is unfeeling and perfectly comfortable with it. If and when Jeff becomes more credible, and not just a fairy tale persona, the entire ensemble will be solid as a rock.

Kidding is a low-key series that makes the most of the supremely talented Jim Carrey, an actor with great instincts and the embodiment of sad clown.

Kidding is weird. It's tough to know what to make of it. This is not a complaint.
