Kyle MacLachlan nails it but the rest fall short.
20 October 2013 | by (New York, NY) – See all my reviews

Kyle MacLachlan goes all in on his portrayal of the simple but always charming, Mayor of Portland. Unfortunately even MacLachlan's powerful performance wasn't enough to carry the show with Armisen's dry, bland, and all around boring characters that just don't fit the bill.

It seems like the skits aren't very well thought out and they're pulling humor from over-analyzing the hipster culture. To me, it seems like they're trying to make something out of nothing.

If MacLachlan walks I'd give the show one more season before it's done. We see smaller shows trying to get their footing by injecting some star power (Devito in Sunny) all the time but maybe MacLachlan isn't even enough to keep this one afloat.
