After nine episodes that are overly dependent on convienence to move the story along, I will not be back if this does get renewed for a fourth season. Full Review »

Ms. Patty Pancakes, DJ Ski mask, Jim Stansel. This show is crammed with jokes and ridiculousness. It's exactly what I was hoping for and got it. I'm sure Bradley Cooper annihilated the American Sniper crowd with this goofy, hilarious role where he kisses a man. Direct hit! Full Review »

    But back to the opening scene .. and why this series is annoying me rather than entertaining, we open on the scene where Colin Farrel is talking to his son ... now I know they haven't brought up the whole rape thing in the first scene, but the script is going to question CF as being his dad ... I don't mind that concept, but visually and conceptually it was as subtle as a brick to the face. Its like the director/casting agent thought ok we have a dark haired skinny CF and later we want the audience to question if he's the father, so ok we'll cast a Ginger haired fat kid, it leave no question marks, no is he or isn't he the father to play on. It was almost like watching a comedy sketch. Simply put, this season lacks any sense of mystery.

    There are also TOO many storylines, it felt like a train wreck, your introduced to what felt like 20 characters in the first episode, it gave you no time to buy into any scene or character, you get a few lines and your jarred of to another character.

    It also lacks any sense of atmosphere, Season 1 practically oozed Deep South America, Season 2 has alot of aerial shots of cars on highways, shots that frankly could be filmed anywhere, in fact it seemed 90% of the opening episodes felt like they were shot inside some generic soundstage ... it simply lacks any real sense of location.

    Its cliched, muddled, lacks nuance, and has some terrible acting at times, it's as if everyone knows it should be great, knows the writier is capable of great things but no one wants or knows how to commit.

Like a lot of comedy series, it takes a few episodes to gel. But starting at #5, the timing, writing and editing hit the mark, turning an amusing show into a laugh out loud show. Full Review »
