Nathan can't do a normal show. So I hope it's docuseries

The Rehearsal, a half-hour comedy, is set in a world where nothing seems to ever work out as you had hoped and features Fielder giving people the opportunity to rehearse for their own lives. It’s unclear if The Rehearsal will be scripted or a docuseries similar to How To; HBO declined comment when asked for additional details on the series.

I love how he is so awkward, even after rehearsing.

Too much hype! It can't live up to all of this.

I thought the pilot was incredible. Nathan is such a smart guy, and plays so dumb all the time. This was so elaborate and took so much time and planning. Amazing.

Some highlights:
Nathan rehearsing the meeting with him, and it still being super awkward
Thrifty Boy Nathan talking to the DJ host, and casually eating a ketchup packet
Cheap Chick in the City? Cheap Chick in the City. Cheap Chick...in the City? Cheap Chick in the City.
Him planning the elderly swimmer. Him planning EVERYTHING so well.
It’s days like these where I curse the Chinese for inventing gunpowder. That was so funny him putting the trivia answers in their daily conversations
That bar turned out so good. It was so convincing.
How will the actress nailed Tricia. So much complaining. I do feel bad how Tricia was painted in this show though, it wasn't flattering at all for her.
“I did Nathan For You… you haven’t heard of it? Don’t you specialize in TV trivia?”
Blanks while skeet sheeting. LOL

Holy buckets I love this show. How did the Raising Cane's guy not realize he found himself in the exact same situation with the gold and grandpa? lol. Clearly he should have doubted that.

We laughed so hard when they showed the passage of time in the house with the fake mirrors and switching out the veggies in the garden over night. This show is amazing

Four ways of looking at The Rehearsal
1) The Rehearsal is an exploitative reality show
And Nathan Fielder is a monster.

2) The Rehearsal is an exceptionally weird documentary
And Nathan Fielder is an artist.

3) The Rehearsal is a mea culpa memoir
And Nathan Fielder is a wounded man.

4) The Rehearsal is ... well, we don’t know yet
And Nathan Fielder is a trickster.

Every episode of this is crazy at the layers they get to, but the last episode was even crazier. It was like Inception and I didn't know how deep it was.
