Trivia

Co-creators Gregory Jacobs and Joe Gangemi concede there are several parallels between reality and the show. Both of their fathers suffered heart attacks in their 50s, as Sam does in the show's pilot episode; Jacobs worked his way up as a P.A. at a production company and found romance along the way, as does David. Plus, "we both had Wheelers in our lives and dated Karens," Jacobs says, referring to David's Season 1 girlfriend. "But we quickly diverged from autobiography," Gangemi says, "because we realized our real lives haven't been nearly as interesting or funny." See more »

Will leave you with a smile on your face.
12 November 2015 | by barneywilsonSee all my reviews

Set in a country club in the 80's, Red Oaks is a story of the staff and members alike as they work their way through a summer of transition.

It's a feel-good show with likable characters and consistently engaging plot-lines that drag you in until your emotions are undoubtedly invested.

Notable mentions go to Oliver Cooper, who plays drug-dealing valet and lovable rogue 'Wheeler', and 'Nash', a tennis-pro and ace with the ladies, hilariously played by Ennis Esmer.

The cast was flawless with many names worthy of praise, however the stand-out is unquestionably Craig Roberts. Known widely for Richard Ayoade's Submarine, Roberts provides us with a neutral perspective of the chaos unfolding around him.

Ultimately, this is a show that Amazon can be thoroughly proud of, with overwhelmingly positive reviews and an equal number of cliff- hangers in the final episode of the season that I'm sure will leave many fans eagerly awaiting a season 2.

Strong first season and a definite must-watch. 8/10.

P.s - Craig Roberts bears an almost uncanny resemblance to Rob Schneider at times...or maybe it's just me.
