More dud than odd
27 February 2015 | by See all my reviews

This is truly awful.

I'm not sure whether it's the terrible acting, poor delivery or the lazy writing. The jokes, if one can call them that, are unimaginative and instantly forgettable. If it wasn't for the overbearing laughter track you'd miss them entirely.

It's nothing that a complete change of writers and actors couldn't turn around though.

I'd like to say that it won't make it past this first season. Unfortunately, given how easy it is to churn out this banal crud without thinking, I wouldn't be surprised if they just keep cranking that handle.
