Slightly cute, but more annoying as the show progresses. The chemistry between Gillam and Cho is adorable, but that and Karen's hot looks are about the only significant portions of the show worth watching. The one-off jokes and episode themes fail more often than not. I agree with the other reviews that the first two episodes were better than I hoped, but the last one (ep. 4) was ridiculously terrible with the 6th grade level 'inspirational message' about Charmonique's life. It's started out as a 7/10, but it's clearly downhill now.… Full Review »
Nice show, good actors. Didn't understand where things were going at first, but after watching the 2nd episode, things turned out to be quite complex. A story of how a simple and unanticipated affair could turn everything upside down. Highly recommended to those who like to see the world through different point of views, as it is well applied by the director.… Full Review »
I honestly have no idea what all the hoopla is about. The show is sooooo NOT funny, I can't begin to tell you how the jokes fall flat.
The show comes off real corny too in what seems to me as obvious attempts exploiting current political correctness. The 2 gay dads just seem thrown in and only "just because." On top of which they have to be interracial too, and seems so " just because."
Now, I'm a gay black dude who's dated blacks and whites and browns and also in betweens. I have nothing against gay dads or dudes or inter-racialism, and I have nothing against the lesbians either. (Yes, there is a lesbian character thrown in "just because.")
But I do have something against what seems to me as pandering. Obvious pandering. Just because gay marriage and rights are in the news, they've thrown in 2 gay dads. To make it seem more edgy, seemingly, the dads are interracial.
I'm pleased to see more gays today on tv and in film. But the gay thing isn't a fad.
And even if I could suck up to the pandering, I could not get a laugh. The show is just not funny.… Full Review »
I think since season 2 this idea of introducing "musicals" is just out of line, this season "Freak Show" seems like its going to become a "Freak Glee"... Im not even bothering in watching another chapter... listening the 2 heads girl singing "Criminal" was enough.. bye bye AHS… Full Review »
