Mildly funny
3 December 2014 | by b4blueSee all my reviews

Its a PC version of a sketch comedy. They appear edgy but cater too much to the general public, with view on stuff that mass media serves us already. I stopped watching after episode 3. I would rather watch old shows again, like Kids in the Hall, WKYK, ... But that is just me. I watch so much comedy that I really expect quality. They seem to have a good cast but somehow they fail. My guess is that they are too far away from the real, raw life, stuck inside their urban dream, growing up without any real problems. You have a cast of Jews and blacks and would expect so much more from them. Its like they have been cut from their roots and planted inside a utopia. Look at what other comedians are doing. PC is censoring everything yet they set up bar higher and higher.
