I first became a fan of John Mulaney after watching some of his stand up routines and he's clever remarks on talk show interviews, so naturally i was excited to see a television series with John in the leading role. Mulaney was referred to as a modern Seinfeld prior to its air date this fall, so i believe it is unfair to critique the show on it's similarities, as How I Met Your Mother was a modern adaptation of FRIENDS and was an enormous success in its own merit.
Having said this, i have to admit i am disappointed with Mulaney. The stand up routine in the beginning is always the most enjoyable, natural and unforced scene of each episode; there is little on screen chemistry between cast members, however the dialogue often leaves me cringing and regretting my decision to give the show another chance.
The series trailer depicted a lot of 'Ba Dm Tsss' moments however as of yet, it is yet to deliver and has provided viewers with a lot of missed opportunities and just plain awkwardness.
