| Worth giving a chance.
I think Ricky is a crazy genius. He loves to make you laugh and he does it very well. With Derek, Ricky has tried to reinvent himself in a way that is so outside the box you would never imagine it unless you were part comic genius and part bloody crazy.

The undertone for the show is a serious look at life, but the core essence for Ricky was to still have fun in his role.

The series is not for everyone and is not for people who don't like to think.

I will say this however: The laughs when they do come are worth the wait. The serious undertones are also well worth the viewing time. I think it will be difficult to keep the show going past season two unless they want to make it into a cryfest, but it has been fun and enjoyable throughout.
