Surprising Terrible!
12 August 2013 | by AvaAva3See all my reviews

Terrible. That was one of the worst things I've ever see. I can't believe that was called a comedy. I've had this show, and especially this episode recommended to me by many friends, and have been waiting a long time to watch it so, I was expecting it to be a new favorite series, but it was Awful! The acting was bad, it was way over the top and the comedic timing was just terrible.

The jokes were poorly written, and the story line seemed rushed, like it wasn't thought out at all!

The video production was terrible, not just because it seemed low quality, but because it looked like they didn't put any effort in it to make it look good.

This show wasn't entertaining, it wasn't fun, and it was not even the slightest bit funny. Usually when watching any comedy series I can at least find one thing funny or good about it, but not in this case. Therefore my description of this episode and this show is that it is Surprising Awful.
