'The First Season'
Forget "Joey," "Episodes" is the show Matt LeBlanc should have done after "Friends" ended. The baby-faced actor (who won the Golden Globe for Best Actor) plays himself in this hilarious, BBC/Showtime joint venture about a British couple (Stephen Mangan and Tamsin Greig) who are remaking their popular BBC comedy over to the U.S. It's a wonderful mixture of dry British humor mixed with silliness in the form of LeBlanc's caricature of himself. The second season begins on July 1 on Showtime. Catch up now. (DVD, $29.98)
