    Just as adept with suspense as slapstick humor, it's both a piss-take of action dramas and a strong action drama in its own right.

    The many tones should produce whiplash, but the series works because it’s always able to go back to its central idea of a lower-level government employee living in a sleepy small town and getting wrapped up in something bigger than he would ever have anticipated.

    I expected to be tired of the joke behind The Wrong Mans within an episode or two. Instead, I found myself engrossed enough in the story of who wanted Sam dead at any particular moment, and why, to keep watching until I made it all the way to the end and could appreciate just how well Baynton, Corden and company stuck the landing.

    This show caught me off guard because I saw by accident on Hulu. I find a lot programs that are "funny" not so funny at all. Humor is very personal and so I stumbled across this show I was so excited!! I understand it and it speaks my language of humor very well. Needless to say, as far as I am concerned this is a brilliantly, hilariously well written and acted show. I enjoyed every second of each episode and sincerely hungry for more after the last episode. Who would have thought the writers behind the show are the 2 main characters and they are actual friends?! This explains the incredible chemistry that is translated. Cannot wait for season 2.

    Love this series! The characters are likable and funny! It hasn't got the best story but it doesn't need to be because the characters are the best thing about this series! Love it 10/10! Full Review »
