| Concept not as original as you might think
Yes, 'Review' is a brilliant concept. However, anyone touting it as refreshingly original or uniquely funny is sorely mistaken. The show 'Review' is actually an American reboot of the Australian comedy, 'Review with Myles Barlow' starring Phil Lloyd, first airing in 2008 (See the 'Did You Know?' section).

The American 'Review' is a well made program, but like 'The Office (US)', it's a slightly less realistic, less painfully honest and altogether less well formulated show, despite the bigger budget. If you can find the Australian version (a lot of which is on Youtube), I'd recommend comparing the first review of both pilots, 'stealing', to get the idea. A few segments contain Australianisms that might not come across to a foreign audience, but with superior writing, beautifully painful situations and a consistently stellar performance from Phil Lloyd, it's definitely worth checking out.

The American 'Review' is great nonetheless, even when it is painfully similar to situations from its Australian predecessor. It may be harder to identify a reboot with smaller series that don't come out of the US or the UK, but it's important to know where credit is due.
