Josh Thomas stars in the show that he created and writes. Each show is well directed and produced. It is a show with both awkward and relatable comedy that is realistic and natural. The best quality of the show is how honest and direct the character Josh is. The supporting cast are excellent, and the time share is well balanced.
It is good to see TV networks including progressive story lines rather than the old, tired gay story lines that cast characters as struggling, rejected, unhappy and depressed.
It's also refreshing to have a comedy that includes a sensible gay role model rather than reverting to the overtly flamboyant and eccentric overused stereotype.
The central character and type of comedy will probably split opinion. For those reasons, I would not criticise but rather appreciate it for what it tries to be, and in that respect, 10 out of 10 is well deserved.
If you haven't already, watch this show!
