This series has received a thumbs up from the media and the critics. The cast was highly praised for their performance and the show got over 80% rating on Rotten Tomatoes and has an average rating of 7.5/10 on IMDb.
This series will make you rolling on the floor laughing as well as tug at your heartstrings at the same time which makes it a must-watch!
It was no surprise when it was announced that the creators have decided not to produce Episodes season 6 as they declared the fifth season to be the final season long before.
The creators thought it was the right time to end the show without stretching it out too much as it had gotten a lot weirder since the first season.
The ending of the show was quite satisfying as Sean and Beverly explored different parts of Hollywood and teaches a life-long lesson to Matt as a character. This show depicts pure emotions and struggles with a hilarious twist in it.
So unfortunately we are not getting Episodes of season 6 but the previous 5 seasons were a crazy ride which is totally worth a watch!

It was suspected that combining two regions of comedy may occur difficulties in writing to please the audience on both sides.

The main cast of this show includes – Matt LeBlanc as Matt LeBlanc himself, Tamsin Greig as Beverly Lincoln, Stephen Mangan as Sean Lincoln, John Pankow as Merc Lapidus, Mircea Monroe as Morning Randolph, and Kathleen Rose Perkins as Carol Rance.
Apart from that, this show has also been nominated for various awards. Matt LeBlanc has won the Golden Globe Award for the Best Actor – Television series Musical or Comedy for his performance in this show and has also been nominated for three to four Primetime Emmy Awards.
Being a series based on British as well as American, the filming of this series took place in both of the locations. Some scenes were shot in Los Angeles but most of the series was shot in the UK. Even the Malibu mansion matt was shown to own was in the UK.

Episodes is not a conventional comedy, but is indeed funny!! This show is very clever doing what it does. The only reason some people don't like it is that their sense of humour is skewed, being a mix of the British and American genres. It's extremely well-written and the cast is terrific.
There are parts based on me, but what they will do is take something that is really about my life that is a seed and grow it into this bush of an idea. Where it goes is based on that seed, it is not what really happens - my life is not that interesting.”
All 5 Seasons of 'Episodes' Are On Netflix Now for The Perfect Long Weekend Binge-Watch. Because Episodes, a really funny and clever companion series to Friends (they share a creator, David Crane, and maybe you've heard of him, some guy named Matt LeBlanc stars in both) is now on Netflix!
