How To Watch 'Episodes' Season 4 Premiere Online So You Can Keep Feeding Your 'Friends' Addiction

TV is back, y'all. It was dicey there for a while, with every single show on TV either disappearing for a lengthy winter break or coming to an early end after a short season. And now you can help Showtime recover from the loss of Homeland and The Affair by learning where to watch Season 4 of Episodes. And TV isn't just trickling back — we're now facing a full flood of new and returning programming. So if Episodes just doesn't make the cut for your live viewing, you'll be happy to know there are plenty of other ways to watch it. It's practically a public service: watch more TV.

And after the holidays, I know that you've been mainlining episodes of Friends to help with the pain of losing sleeping in, your parents' cooking, or avoiding your parents' cooking by convincing your siblings to go in on a pizza. But you can't eat pizza twice a day every day forever, and while you can survive more easily on watching three episodes of Friends a day twice a day, that won't last forever either. So that's where Cougar Town, The Comeback, Web Therapy, and, this weekend, Episodes come into play. The friends themselves are the best tonic against Friends withdrawal.

Oh, and for those who just clicked on this article because the header image is a picture of Matt LeBlanc, Episodes is a comedy about two British writers who come to America to write a sitcom starring Matt LeBlanc, who is, as you can expect, playing a version of himself. There's also a crazy stalker, amazing and then terrible ratings, and a lot of dry British humor. I know you're dying to watch that season premiere, so here's how.
