awful, just awful
28 August 2015 | by (Perth, Australia) – See all my reviews

Unfortunately, I had the misfortune to see this whilst waiting for the football on a weekend afternoon. Like watching a train wreck, I couldn't look away. One girl stood out and is now reasonably successful. The others were a mishmash of decidedly average people unwittingly believing that they had 'something special' and would get picked up in LA for acting roles. You could not help but root against them. One awfully obese guy with a lazy unkempt beard and absolutely no drive, no personality or charm was under the impression that he was the next Belushi or Candy. God knows what he thinks he was, but he is the guy you see spending far too much time and money at Mr Donut. I see that this series was not renewed after the first season. At least the network had the sense to understand what indeed was rubbish to begin with. Here's a hint... use engaging characters in future.
