mediocre at best
I think it's an overall fun show to watch, but I can see why it's getting a lot of hate - it feels like just another typical unfunny multi-camera sitcom that doesn't stand out and won't go past season 1. I think the premise itself is original and interesting - a group of former high school classmates who work together in a barbershop because they couldn't pursue their intended careers (which is also relatable) and that they were hired by another guy they went to high school with who bought the barbershop from an older man (George Wendt) who now just works there with people young enough to be his children. The problems with the show is that most of the lines are cheesy and unfunny, and Ben and Mo's heavy Boston accents are so unnecessary and obviously fake. Just because it takes place in Boston it doesn't mean the main characters need accents. It's fine if the recurring minor characters like the Doyle sisters have accents but not the main characters. I'm just really glad the main female characters don't have accents - if that were the case the show would be completely unwatchable. Another problem with the show is that sometimes it tries too hard to be funny and I have a feeling most of the story lines will be predictable and full of clichés. I think this show has potential and it can improve if they come up with more clever jokes without trying too hard, more original story lines that develop and end properly without leaving any major plot holes, and get rid of the guys' Boston accents, or at least make them more subtle. I also don't find the main characters very likable, but they're not completely intolerable either. Ben, Mo, and Joy are annoyingly over the top and too cartoonish; and Danni, AJ, and Buzzy are kind of bland. Charmaine is the most likable character in my opinion. She's not as irritating as Mo, Ben, and Joy and she's more interesting than Danni, AJ, and Buzzy
