LOVE Bo Burnham, but...
13 May 2013 | by evilherbivoreSee all my reviews

I have a 3-episode policy when it comes to new series before I decide to ditch it. I am a huge fan of Bo Burnham's comedy, so I was really looking forward to this series but so far I've been pretty disappointed. It's just painfully awkward and sad and cringe-inducing. The only likable characters are Zach's nerdy 2 best friends and the whole thing is just kind of boring and unfunny. Considering Burnham's level of comic genius outside this show, I'm a little confused as to how this pilot made it to series.

I'll definitely keep buying Bo's albums and show tickets, but I'm sad to say I don't think this series will make the 3 episode cut. Hoping the next show to come his way will be more on par with his talents.
