I would recommend buddy system to the hardcore Rhett and link fan but not necessarily the average person who are not familiar with them. Good mythical morning, their morning show, always has a high level of entertainment from it that I would highly recommend to anyone. But buddy system has some weaknesses alongside its strengths.
Let's start by going over some of the areas that buddy system struggled in. One area that buddy system struggled in is its transitions between scenes. A lot of the transitions between scenes felt choppy or forced and completely unnatural at times. For instance most episodes would have a musical piece but the transition into those songs weren't always smooth or fluid. In fact there are times when the change happened so quickly I had to double back and make sure I hadn't missed them saying something leading up into the song.
Another area where buddy system struggled in is it felt like it struggled to know who their audience was geared towards. GMM is a youtube show that is made with all ages in mind. So there is no swearing and the content is roughly a PG rating. Buddy system is similar in that there is little swearing and it is roughly a PG rating. However, you could argue most of Rhett and links fans are not young or younger children. Most of their fans are younger adults. But the content in the series buddy system felt a little dumbed down so that it could be palatable for younger viewers but at the same time that sacrifice may have lost some opportunities to write content in buddy system for a slightly older audience. Buddy system in a sense "holds your hand" but I think there is no need to do that.
Now let's address the things about buddy system I liked. One thing I liked is how when they wrote the script they weren't afraid to experiment. There were a lot of odd things that happened that made me raise my eyebrows but I have to give them props for it because it shows their originality and unique ideas.
And the main thing I liked about buddy system is the songs. The music in the show is very well made and the level of care and effort they put into making the songs shows that they put a lot of their budget into the songs and it paid off. The songs are catchy and fun. Some remind me of OKGO, 90's Rap, and barbershop. So there's a lot to like when it comes to the songs not to mention the creative music videos they made to go with the songs.
All in all I would give buddy system a 7 out of 10 or roughly a "C" grade. It is fairly evidently that this is their first voyage into making a project that isn't their normal jam. There are a lot of areas that could have been better but the average fan of Rhett and link will be sure to enjoy this show. Also let me be clear this is my review of buddy system "season 1" there is a season 2 that I haven't watched and after watching it I may write a different review.
