SurprIsingly cute show
28 November 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I don't have regular TV (cut the cord 2 years ago) and I was searching for a TV show to binge. This has 5 seasons on Netflix so it can't be horrible. Even mediocre shows might have a 2 year life span.

It's your cookie cutter 20-something year olds growing into official adulthood. The cast is really good and they all have genuine chemistry. With one exception.

The mom is the TV-stereotype divorced woman who has no boundaries or friends of her own. And she's slutty and brags about it to her her kids (so gross).

The thing is, she is ALWAYS screaming. To the point that it's a huge turn off. If she took it down just a few octaves, this would get great marks from me.

I'm not sure why a lot of comedians think screaming makes this funnier. Because it doesn't.

Other than the mom, two thumbs up.
