Great story. Enough twists every few episodes to keep you coming back ... And I like the world/characters.... But the dialogue is a bit over written at times. Reads like a play not like real life. But good show...short episodes is good too .
I can see the acting too much. Everything feels fake..I guess they're going for some kind of hammy vibe but it just feels a bit wrong to me. Then again I don't like those old Cary Grant / Kathryn Hepburn comedies much either.
Bang bang bang. Jokes jokes jokes. Good ones. Unexpected ones. One of the few comedies I have rewatched and will again. Up there with Seinfeld and 30 rock and Arrested Development as the funniest American shows of all time.
Really like the concept. Love the backstage and onstage stuff...all the cameos for stand up nerds. It's funny and interesting. I just find Pete's little lost puppy dog sad-face kind of annoying. Sorry Pete. The last episode of S3 is the best episode . Worth a watch .
Really enjoyed the first season... It's funny and an interesting premise. There is one big problem - the whole show is an estranged father trying to bond with his son, but the son is a very unlikeable character. This doesn't work. I do like all the jokes aimed at shallow male models though. The step father model guy is the best part of the show. Worth a watch... The best new comedy on Netflix that I've seen.... Although it's not laugh out loud funny much.... But doesn't matter as the drama and story is also good.
Season 1 is total comedy gold. I'm pretty fussy with comedy and definitely don't give good reviews to tv or films from NZ just because I'm kiwi ....there's been so much bad comedy from NZ over the years...but this is right up there and easily one of the funniest things to come out of NZ in the 2000s
I'm on episode 6 but I can't do it anymore.... There's nothing to grab into in this show. I wonder how many of the high scoring reviewers are smoking weed. It would be probably be great high.... But for me I need a plot or a laugh or something.
