So
29 March 2019 | by whatithinkisSee all my reviews

The singing and cartoons migrated from 'Brain Dead,' which the Kings wrote. This is not that, or anything close. 'Brain Dead' was genius. This is desperate.

Michael Sheen is just awful. And desperate. Every aspect of what he did was unpleasant and not entertaining. Overacting, not strength. Ditto Rose Leslie's tantrum.

I enjoy the Trump-bashing, as well as going to school on his 'technique.' Using it against him brings us to the edge of an abyss . . . but there is the second term issue.

Overall the writing is weak and that's too bad. TGW was tight, complex, fun. This is messy, reaching and seems to be falling apart.

Too bad. I like Christine Baranski and Gary Cole. Wish they wrote better material for Sarah Steele's character. But, hey, if they could they would already be doing it.
