• A silly, sophomoric premise delivered with ham-fisted cynicism. A shame, really, because there's some real talent involved here.

    The show misses on all counts: it's not funny, sophisticated, insightful, interesting or entertaining.

    Worse, it takes itself VERY seriously. It's like hearing a great joke told by someone with no comic timing.

    It's like a college freshman who's just discovered Nietzsche. Terribly exciting for them, but tedious for the rest of us!

    It's neither edgy nor innovative. It parades its essential narcissism without apology.

    A swing and a miss for HBO.
