Season 1: Solid start but lacks spark – it shows potential rather than delivering on it
14 September 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I had heard good things about his show recently and decided that I would give it a try rather than miss out. I had seen a handful of episodes on airplanes and found them pretty funny so I started on this short first season. None of the episodes I had previously seen were from this season and generally I didn't find the episodes here to be as good as those that I had seen. In fairness the short number of episodes (British- sitcom short) suggest that the whole season was somewhat of a pilot. The approach of the show is very much in the mould of The Office and the style of humor is also similar. This first season focuses on one specific plot which I'm not sure always helps it particularly in terms of getting the jokes flowing, but it does show potential in terms of its setting.

How similar this first season was to The Office did start to bug me though which was odd as other episodes I had seen from later in the series hadn't done this. I think it was the lack of real spark and color to the delivery; it was solid for sure and had plenty to enjoy but it didn't seem to have enough going on – which again is perhaps due to the season-long plot. The cast are good though and you can see the potential in the majority of them as they all display certain quirks while also having to deliver the narrative. Poehler is good and very good when the material is strongest. She works well with Jones who is very likable in her character and I think she makes that relationship work even outside of the pit storyline. Ansari I personally don't care for but I still found him funny here but Offerman is particularly good and hopefully the coming seasons make more use of the extremes of his character. Plaza and Pratt are straightforward but funny, however I didn't think Schneider had much to work with in Mark – I can see the use of his character but he was pretty dull.

I know the show can be better so I look forward to more and I'm glad of this because this first season didn't really set me on fire. It is funny and has enough about it to show there is potential, but mostly this season seemed to be about showing that potential rather than delivering on it.
