No time to joke
20 April 2014 | by See all my reviews

Judd Apatow had won my heart and sympathy with his show 'Freaks and Geeks', a show that was canceled soon after it started. So i thought i might give this show a try, knowing that this one too had been canceled soon after it's launch.

I was not all disappointed but not all happy either.. The only tag this show has is 'comedy' and that is the only thing i couldn't find in all of the story line , the drama and the weak acting. Although this show had great actors and great appearances, it just didn't get to me..

The only thing i loved in this show was Seth Rogens and the occasional appearances of Jason Segel. The story is also good, not great. It's filled with old book clichés and expected turns which won't keep you hooked for that long.

I don't exactly disapprove of this show, but it just wasn't up to my taste.. You might have a different taste and you might enjoy the show, but in my opinion we have so many great shows going on, why not let bygones be bygones.
