So, Joe Kelly writes for "How I Met Your Mother?" Now I feel less dirty enjoying a sitcom from the same network that brings Yellow 6 Americans "Two and a Half Men." "Joe & Kate" -- and all web series that remind us how many smart comedians live and walk amongst us -- elevates teh intertubes so far above TV. Kill the network money trolls and make Purdy, Kelly and their ilk into house-hold names.

aprilffi (18th September 2009)
I LOVE all these episodes. I laugh inside and outside sometimes too. How could you NOT get Mommy? They were saying pat lovey dovey names to each other and HE called her MOMMY! How is that not awkward, weird and hilarious all at once? I LOVE this show. I could be these people. I get them 100 percent. I agree if you don't have anything good to say then watch something else and leave this for FANS!!!

3rin (12th April 1990)
hahaha, that was fantastic...

gee man (12th April 1168)
at least they're really short.

WildZero (12th April 3462)
Just boring.

richardhench (20th December 2008)
I love this one! Sometimes we don't even understand what we've said wrong!

hardcorefleur (20th December 2008)
I personally think these webisodes are quite enjoyable. It's realistic and quirky.

firebuild (26th November 2008)
I love how these episodes manage to drain the romance out of these scenarios while still managing to make a case for relationships. Fun stuff!

wellcommander (15th November 2008)
Okay, so I'm giving these things a chance... and Joe and Kate are... pleasant. But finally, something funny in these webisodes... the K-Y ads!

GLICKLA (15th November 2008)
Liked the quirky writing -- reminiscent of Seinfeld? "Mommy" showcased a moment when goofy pet names for each other go bad.

Of the first 3, episode two was my fave.

Overall, site has a slow loading/buffering & pausing problem...
