This is the funniest show on TV in a decade!
20 August 2015 | by ColtPython82See all my reviews

I had no idea what this was going into it, I only found out about it while surfing the CC website and checking out clips on various shows. As I watched each video I began to notice I was laughing nonstop at each short scene. I thought if these two minute snidbits are this funny then the full half hour must be hilarious. Sure enough I watched the first episode and spend the rest of the night binge watching season 1 and the first episode of season 2. This show is laugh out loud funny, just dirty enough to be edgy, and the writing is some of the freshest and most clever on TV. I knew Andy Daly from EastBound and Down, although funny throughout that series, he only played a minor part in it. But in this show he shines like no other comedian I've seen in awhile and I couldn't see anyone else filling this role. Each episode takes you on a hilarious adventure with Forrest as he tries to navigate these insane and grueling reviews. His consistently oblivious nature puts him at odds with the people around him and sets in motion some of the funniest comedic situations on television. The reviews he has sent in each week range from joining the Mile High club to finding out what it's like to be a little person, but it's the way Forrest goes about surveying these reviews that really makes the show so remarkable. I give it ***** Stars!
