If you like 30 Rock, you will love this show. The dialogue and plot are clever, cute, and a little cheeky. Characters are endearing and there is excellent energy and chemistry between them. Since it is on Netflix, it's a total binge worthy show! 🀞🏻🀞🏻🀞🏻Hoping beyond hope that Netflix revived the series for a third (and hopefully more) season!!!
