    The frenetic plots can be tiring, and the humor leans too hard on the hyper-quirky tone that comes to define the post-Parks and rec Sitcom landscape. If there's a reason to stay, it;s the permanent cast of townsfolk, who start to shine once the episodic tales intertwine. [4 Aug 2017, p.55]

    The channel has been betting big on sitcoms for a while now, and this one is in the same pleasantly, somewhat raunchily mindless vein as “The Detour.” And, like those shows, it grows on you, because it sharpens as it goes along.

    Is the show funny? Sort of. It’s certainly charming, in a frequently vulgar sort of way, and well performed by the cast and guest stars.

    Some split-screen episode bookends and some inventive camera placements keep the cottage from getting too familiar. But those occasional touches can’t replace the fact that the show lives and dies on the strength of its episode-to-episode stories.

    This series is so disposable it would barely fill up a tall kitchen trash bag. Yet there's still pleasure in watching a seasoned comedienne like Stockard Channing and an old pro like Holmes Osborne try to spin gold out of a creaky tale about devout religious parents attempting to convert their son's atheist girlfriend (Mary Lynn Rajskub).

    Despite boasting an impressive guest star roster that includes Stockard Channing, Danny Pudi, Lauren Lapkus, Mary Lynn Rajskub, Michaela Watkins and many other extraordinary comedy talents, the humor and characters don’t feel altogether hospitable.

    In the two-episode premiere, a host of flat, screechy, and stereotypical characters take part in stories about an angry new mom and small-minded Christians. Neither establish an entertaining vibe nor a reason to check back in.

The trailers for Guest Book are incredibly charming with each week being a different story. That's so clever! Although this may not be for everyone, Mr. Garcia's tone and tastes have pulled through yet again with a winning show! I later read that he wrote all of them. Not an easy thing to do. I'm excited to watch the rest of the season and learn more about the townspeople and how they get into trouble with the guests. Love seeing Eddie back on tv too! Expand

    The first season of The Guest Book was one of the best TV series I have ever seen. The content, the addictive characters, Honeyhoney's musicThe first season of The Guest Book was one of the best TV series I have ever seen. The content, the addictive characters, Honeyhoney's music snippets, the hysterical fat hooker at the bar --all these components combined to produce stories that were snappy, fast-paced, and took no prisoners. I awaited each episode very eagerly. The final episode with Orson Bean was a total kick. While based on a simple concept, the content and stories were excellent. This series made me laugh out loud repeatedly and I am watching closely for the second season. Congratulations to the writers. Expand

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. I love that anthology shows are making a comeback. This one is hilarious. Who doesn't love a deliciously served case of blackmail right out of the gate in episode one? When that stripper's foot came slapping down on the dude's face in the VIP room, I did a spit take. There were a lot of genuine laughs in this show and it's filled with some delightfully wacky characters. I'll be checking back in to the Froggy Cottage cabin next week and hopefully see some more weird stuff go down. Expand
