Off to a great start...
Last time I wrote a review I did it in defense of a show that deserved to be defended. This time I'm likely the first (amongst IMDb users that is).
I probably wouldn't have heard about this show if I hadn't stumbled on it's premiere by accident. Which would have been a shame to be honest.
I was very positively surprised watching the premiere episode unlike with most shows these days where the hype gets built up by promos and trailers only for it all to end with a big disappointment come premiere day.
One thing that I don't get about the general information on the show is the genre. It's listed as Action/Drama, which is accurate but what is missing here is a Comedy tag.
The show is genuinely funny!
But it's the Joss Whedon meets Nathan Fillion meets House M.D. kind of funny for people who know what I mean. Comedy here is how the characters - or rather the main character - handles day to day situations and interacts with others.
For some reason Comedy genre tag has lately been reserved for those 20- something minute dumb sitcoms which I honestly cannot bear to watch. The quality of humour in those is below what I'd qualify as pathetic.
The show is very entertaining and pleasant to watch. However as I've mentioned before only a single episode premiered so far, offering everyone who enjoyed it so far a great opportunity to feel disappointed still.
This one's from USA so I'm hoping that will not be the case.
