Brilliant!!
14 April 2016 | by (Bangladesh) – See all my reviews

The show takes a new route to comedy. If you're an avid comedy fan, you don't want to miss this. If you liked the office (UK version) the subtle humor, you'll love this. Their self depreciating tone will make you love them. It's if I'm not exaggerating bit like Chaplin, a bit of reality in comedy. I laughed at and with them. Each episode observed different aspects of daily live from gangsta rap to mermaids. Bret and Jermaine they've won a few awards (Bret won Oscar for The Muppets movie) and a Grammy for the show.I liked Murray the most Rhys Darby performance really shone throughout both seasons. I would've liked if they had continued with the show.But still two seasons isn't bad.
