Aside from a couple promising skits, this would have been a 1 star for me. "In The Flow" gives the impression that things progress without being forced and just have a kind of organic appeal to them. But this show is anything but. The jokes come across as forced, and the impressions just aren't done well for the most part. I don't know if the blame should go to the writers or the execution, but this is a show that tries way too hard to be funny, and it falls flat more than it succeeds. I don't expect that it will last more than a few episodes. Perhaps Affion needs to go back to the internet where he was initially discovered. I honestly don't know. It's been mentioned before that this is Chapelle Show lite. That may be too generous a description. Whatever problems may have existed initially with Chapelle Show, the charisma of Dave Chapelle carried it until the problems were worked out. I don't think Affion has it in him to be that likable.
