Jury duty
6 September 2016 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

Even an absurdist comedy will have a kernel of truth. Writer James Acaster is far away from the truth about the jury system as you can get. In fact the only normal person in this pilot episode is the Defendant.

The program focuses on William a man child who in his 30th birthday is called up for jury duty, following on his father's footsteps who set the defendant free many years earlier. We find out that his father is now inside doing time.

It turns out that the rest of the jurors are wacky as he is, they mostly think that the Defendant looks guilty, they are more concerned how the courtroom artist will portray them and the Judge who is presiding in her last trial is wants to go out on a cool note.

Totally unrealistic as to how the court and jury operates and really an infantile comedy which barely raised a laugh with me.
