Garrett Modi may be a loser but the REAL Kal Penn is likeable, animated and a natural
27 September 2019 | by Ed-ShullivanSee all my reviews

Please keep in mind that this was a comedy, and a pilot episode at that (September 26th, 2019), so I, as a Republican voter will cut the series some slack for the first several episodes to see how the characters evolve. Evolve? Yes that is what I said. Well.... wait no longer for Kal Penn to evolve because he is a natural. Some may say Garrett Modi is a drunk, selfish, and a natural loser in this show, but I say he is a natural winner, winning over his audience with his natural ability to make his character, a dismissed/fired City Councillor the champion and saviour of a bunch of immigrants.

If you can see past the political left wing emphasis you just have to keep in mind that the show is a sitcom, and not a promotion to vote Democratic, because if that is what you perceive this sitcom to be than the joke is on all of us. They will never beat Trump and he never starred in a TV sitcom.

I have always liked Kal Penn and he reminds me of the Gujarati Indian model version of the American John Belushi, rest his soul.
