Equal Opportunity BrainDead
30 June 2016 | by (Florida, USA) – See all my reviews

I decided to check out this new show and I have to admit, it's pretty funny.

Disclaimer: I'm not a member of either of the major parties - I ditched my "life-time club membership" right after voting in the primaries. LOL Gotta wake up sometime, right?

To me, they're both varying degrees of terrible. Which might explain why I dig this show. It takes potshots at both sides.

It's obviously both satire and fiction but with current real-life elections underway, I can see where this might rub some people the wrong way.

At this early stage I don't see any agenda and there might just not be one, or it might hint at the fact that the 2-Party system simply isn't working in a country that claims to value personal freedoms and democracy.

I say enjoy it for what it is. :)
