The Return of Gleason and Knotts Characters
7 July 2013 | by See all my reviews

It's nothing new, really. Just Don Knotts as Barney Fife brought up to date. Self-puffery leading to embarrassment over and over again, plus friends who will put up with you--even LIKE you--no matter how absurdly conceited and self-serving you are. Burnham is good in this, but, being so young, he may not have realized that old-timers will have seen this all before countless times. It was even a regular Jackie Gleason shtick on The Honeymooners.

My guess is that we will see more and better material from Burnham in the future, He's a clever stand-up with a very fertile mind. But the Zach Stone character is too hackneyed and the supporting characters here are both one-dimensional and given almost nothing to do but stare at the star. That kind of focus on a single character requires significantly more than we get from Burnham here. There are moments of fun and originality, and, of course, the cringe-inducing segments he's seeking can be found in every episode. But, in the end, I'd have to say this show was likely unsuccessful in getting the response it intended from its viewers, so it's unsurprising to me that it was not renewed.
