Paint by numbers 'comedy'
2 November 2019 | by sublimineyesSee all my reviews

I only made it part way though one episode of this. Hadn't laughed or smile donce so tried another episode. Same. Why a 2, rather than a 1? Well, if you want to switch off and zone out you can with this.

The main problem is it is just so formulaic. 1) Choose sweeping intro shot where visual elements move and interact. 2) Cut to main stage where characters are glaringly cued in, lines/ideas boringly simple and can be seen coming from miles away. Yet the characters simply don't really interact, emotionally. The camerwork doesn't help and the actors are decent enough that a lot of the blame must lie with the direction. Maybe even ore than the script. 3) For me, give up.

Feels like a visual Paint By Numbers.
