10 September 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Honestly, I was ecstatic to watch this show, as there were plenty of good reviews about it everywhere I looked.

So I watched up through the 2nd Season and progressively could NOT STAND the main character. Over and over and over again, he isn't shown as socially awkward, but socially unaware. I guess this may be for comedic effect, but to me, it was infuriatingly annoying.

I guess the meta humor is that he plays an a-hole of a character and you're supposed to find that funny. It's not even situational humor supplemented with good writing. The characters are supposed to be believable as human beings, and most of the time, they aren't multi-faceted people you grow to love. They just come across as static characters whom never really learn from anything. They just remain the same people in every episode, and you feel dragged along, rather than like you're a cheerleader for even at least one character.

The three main character roommates are somehow good friends, despite the fact that they regularly treat each other like trash and show no loyalty to each other. It's like being on a reality TV show set, except no one is getting enjoyment out of it. I don't know what sort of edge they are going for.

Is it supposed to be: Aussie Hipsters Are Complete Jerks to Each Other? Self-Absorbed Young Adults Learn Absolutely Nothing?

The characters are supposed to have lives outside of the apartment, but we don't have much depth to it. So yes, it is a unique view into the depravity of modern young adulthood. It makes all of us look like we're not only clueless, but like we don't care at all about what horrible people we are. Maybe it's done to be satire, but it comes across more like a series that requires enough fortitude to overcome growing hatred for the characters on screen to follow to the next episode.

It's not going to make or break your life to see this show, but it surely will be a lot less frustrating if you just skipped it all together.
