So, so cheesy! Trying to be Naked Gun, Police Squad! But it's not!
Angie Tribeca is trying so very hard to be a fresh, hip and new Police Squad, Naked Gun TV series but is just far too clichéd for it's own good! If you've grown up on those films and shows then you will be very disappointed! It's a bit funny if you're not expecting Tarantino, Scorcese (or great comedy directors that I can't name atm) etc, which you wouldn't be to start with, however I mean that it's really not very good on any real level! It tries too hard to be funny in the silly style of Leslie Nielsen and Police Squad but the jokes are just a continuous and relentless barrage of cheese that are in fact just plain obvious!to the point of being not funny! You don't get time to appreciate one before the next crashes and burns! It's like the writer has tried to be like Tim Vine(British comic famous for rapid number of jokes) with his stupid one line daft jokes about any subject around. It's nothing but stupid, childish jokes that will make even the most intellectually challenged feel bored! Maybe that's the idea that they are aiming at as many genres as possible so they have a chance of making a hit show on whatever level appreciates it most! I wanted to like it but found myself able to predict all the jokes a second before spoken! They could've spent more time on real funny lines and scenes as opposed to making every line a little funny but failing because you are fed up of daft jokes after a few minutes of the show! Please writers try to not be Tim Vine and reduce the number of jokes so you can focus on the quality instead! It has potential but tries far too hard! Pure cheese and totally predictable humour that lacks any depth at all and is not even a 2nd rate Police Squad! It's like 3rd or 4th division Naked Gun for morons!
