'Episodes' season 4 premiere react: 'Pucks!' gets picked up

Picking up literally the next morning after the events of the previous season ender, Showtime’s laffer Episodes finds our writing duo heroes Beverly and Sean Lincoln (Tamsin Greig and Stephen Mangan) back in foggy London bliss when a call from L.A. decides their fate once again…

…and thank God for that, as the show’s fourth season is off with a comic shot as Bev and Sean grumble their way back to La-La Land, when they receive the word that their dismal sitcom Pucks! (described by one cast member as “risen like Jesus, if Jesus was a sh–ty sitcom no one watched”) has been picked up for six additional episodes. Their increasingly boozy and out-of-control star Matt LeBlanc (still sending himself up beautifully) is P.O.’d over the news, too, as it keeps him from a desired NBC drama pilot that could have changed his waning TV career.

'Episodes': Will Merc and Carol get back together in season 3? -- VIDEO

Poor Merc. Season 2 of the Matt LeBlanc comedy Episodes on Showtime left smarmy network exec Merc Lapidus (John Pankow) high and dry… er, wet actually, after being dumped by his mistress Carol (Kathleen Rose Perkins) and left out in the rain. Not to mention he’s been fired. And his wife left him and is sleeping with Matt LeBlanc. Needless to say, Merc’s seen better days.

“I’m kind of on the outside looking in,” Pankow says in the featurette below of Merc’s place in the show as we head into season 3, which premieres on Showtime on Jan. 12. Merc’s gone from office high life to you’ll-never -work-in-this-town-again territory — even his assistant equates the empty office to a horror movie: “It’s like the movie The Vanishing… Someone vanishes.”

But is there a chance for him and Carol to reunite this season? Get up to date with Merc, Carol,  Matt, and the rest of the gang in the featurette below:
