Although HBO could still be considered in a bit of a slump ("Boardwalk Empire" and "Treme," you're not as compelling as you think), this dark comedy series from Mike White and Laura Dern is a true, eccentric pleasure. Particularly Dern, who nails the role of an unhinged, unpredictable professional trying to reassemble her life. Now if we can just make sure it returns next season.
