subtle satire or light irony.
27 June 2020 | by overhaul2-1See all my reviews

One might think this episode is ridiculing private sector, namely SpaceX, Virgin Galactic or Blue origin, but this is actually kind of mockering the people and government falling for imagined mix of Elizabeth Holmes and Kylie Jenner fraudery and superficial "influencer" culture. Is it, as a show, overall funny as the "Malcolm in the middle" (i'll pass laughtrack sitcoms on this comparison)? No. It's a subtle satire, just as the rest of the episodes. Not that developed like similar corporate comedy "Better of Ted", but when nothing better comes out, it'll be fine. Series does have some characters development, and continuity. If you take it like this, if you don't need laugh track to point out "funny parts", and don't really expect laughing your ass off, it'll be fine entertainment for lighthearted passing time.
