Haven't seen the most recent one

Haven't seen the most recent one yet, hopefully it's as authentic and genuine as the first two Schmo Shows were. It's very disheartening that this show didn't get the recognition it deserved. This show was absolutely brilliant! Haven't seen the most recent one yet, hopefully it's as authentic and genuine as the first two Schmo Shows were.
