Storyline

Jeff, aka Mr. Pickles, is an icon of children's television, a beacon of kindness and wisdom to America's impressionable young minds and the parents who grew up with him - who also anchors a multimillion-dollar branding empire. But when this beloved personality's family - wife, two sons, sister and father - begins to implode, Jeff finds no fairy tale or fable or puppet will guide him through the crisis, which advances faster than his means to cope. The result: a kind man in a cruel world faces a slow leak of sanity as hilarious as it is heartbreaking. Written by Showtime

Trivia

In a negative evaluation, Uproxx's Pilot Viruet compared the series unfavorably to some of Showtimes's past shows saying, "those series found ways to make the humor seem more natural, more fitting with the stories they're telling. Kidding's approach is more overt and frequently confusing, as if spotting a brightly-colored puppet wandering amongst our real world." See more »

So far, so good.
26 September 2018 | by ladyscuttleSee all my reviews

I'll go in with a heavy rating off the bat. I am a fan of Jim Carrey as a more sad, complex character. I am a huge fan of Eternal Sunshine, so it fits the bill for me. It is inspiring and sad at the same time. Someone so genuine facing harsh realities and combatting emptiness to put it short. This show is not your typical Carrey slapstick in the least. I am looking forward to the rest of it. He is perfect for this role that it almost seems real.
