Pretty whatever
12 January 2021 | by MrTheEmbalmerSee all my reviews

I did not mind the political or feminist undertones of the series, quite enjoyed that it gives perspective and social aspect. Unfortunately as previous reviewers said - there was not much history - in a series named that way. Majority of guests were there just to give their opinions about the swear words much more than any useful information and if you did not know who they are/like them you wouldn't really care about their words. I think they would be much better off making it into yt videos than actual series. This way they could maybe mix up guests a bit or do it a weekly occurrence where people could vote who they would like to see in the next episode? As well as that viewers tend to have less expectations when it comes to yt videos and they can also comment so... yeah. Fast watch, but pretty whatever.
