"Review: ‘Easy’ Stars the Young and the Muddled, Connecting in Chicago"

Among the axioms of the television renaissance is that the medium is becoming more cinematic, with single-story seasons that are essentially six- or 10-hour films. But one of the most movielike new shows of the fall doesn’t fit that description.

“Easy,” available on Thursday on Netflix, consists of eight half-hour episodes that are free-standing stories, a few of them very loosely connected. It covers ground that a lot of other TV shows are covering: questions of sex, love and freedom among a mostly young group of city dwellers, in Chicago. But it has the distinct style of its creator, writer and director, the independent filmmaker Joe Swanberg. It’s a four-hour immersion in the ambient, artfully aimless storytelling of the film genre sometimes labeled mumblecore.

Okay, I watched episode 1 and I really enjoyed it because of the style. But it's starting to get old the way all characters seem to talk in the same stuttery/sentence restart structure.

Not everybody has conversations like this and it's getting stale.

Thanks for posting. I'll check out the first couple episodes.
