Sadly, not so great.
2 April 2011 | by projecteightysixSee all my reviews

I was sad about this series. It only lasted a few episodes and they didn't really dig deep in to how they wanted the show. Them having a studio audience for the 30 second (if that) intro's was pretty pointless, and everything as a whole didn't really seem to go anywhere.

Stella, the group, and the show is genius. David Wain doesn't really add to the group as far as jokes (he did hit me hard with laughter at a few of them though), but he is a damn fine writer/director and knows how to get their style humor on screen. This show, I can't really recommend sadly, it does have a few funny spots but I would really look elsewhere in Stella and their other side projects.
