Give it time...
16 April 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This review only covers where I'm at so far - I'm playing catch up here and I'm at episode 7 of season 1.

I think Gerry has a unique approach at standup - and this TV show is no different.

One thing I must give it a negative with is some of the very derivative acting and situations from other TV and Films. It's here and there but not too distracting. Give and take so to speak.

Now the thing I notice people hating on in the comments is the basic outline of the show. The guy is an ass. Reviewers go on to say this is just the way Gerry is. Well sorry to tell you people, when it's on TV and scripted - it's called 'acting'. It's not the way the guy is. Possibly taken from situations the guy was in or possibly things he did in the past - but it's a stretch to just throw the concept out because they truly think he's just getting paid to be an ass-hole to everyone and making everyone feel uncomfortable on the set. I'm amazed we are in 2014 and many people still do not understand theater - especially the wonders of film-making. It's a mystery I see to many.

I would rank this TV show higher but I'm just starting to view it. I will re post a review once I get to season 4 and see where they have taken the characters and the show. It's no where near perfect show, akin to a bag of chips and some concentrated orange juice. Salty sweet and makes you feel a bit sluggish but happy after.

I must say - it's uniquely Canadian in it's approach.. for the good and the bad. (I am not a fan of many of the Canadian production techniques)
