In order to undo the image damage resulting from the mayor's mindless public silver spoon arrogance, he and team Charlie volunteer for a day to help out in a hamburger joint, counting on a slow day but an event causes a record rush. Carter's perfectionism drives his colleagues crazy, but his education pep-talks worked out even worse on the regular workers. Paul teaches Caitlin, sexually starved with Mike away, his tricks of ascetic celibacy, but may loose that knack instead. To impress a motor-obsessed city hall employee, Stuart volunteers to drive home her motorcycle, which requires overcoming his lifelong phobia and braving inter-island traffic. Written by KGF Vissers

Could have been a funny show, however someone left out the comedy.
29 July 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In a show that had so much potential, what we are left with is a show that was unfunny and uneventful. It was like waiting for something good to happen only to have it spoiled by dialog written for a drama and not a comedy.

The main part of the show centered around the Mayor sounding out news that the city had created many more jobs for its citizens. Then only to have Carter throw a bucket of water on the proceedings by saying that most of the jobs were minimal wage. So Charlie sets out for a photo-op where the Mayor will work at a fast food restaurant for an evening. This could have been a funny situation-- but it was again spoiled by Carter again dipping into the well for more water to ruin a good situation. It made the interesting condition a boring nightmare. There was another situation involving Caitlin and Paul but that had little bearing on the show.

The show had a good set-up and it was too bad it was not used. Someone should have stuck with comedy instead of going after political correctness in writing. It could have been funny, only problem - it wasn't.
