Funny show
18 August 2018 | by tomfsloanSee all my reviews

I was sorry when it went off the air. The show was funny but I'll admit it had its share of juvenile humor. Which was fine. It was nice because they actually had exterior scenes which is rare due to time and expense. There was scene that stands out in my memory. To keep it clean, let's say it was the scene that involved the gas tank on the prison van and the prisoner who had to relieve himself.
