weak writing ... the cast is Fine, they tried to make it look a bit better,. but still not enough.
10 April 2015 | by Aktham_TashtushSee all my reviews

well the pilot went barely okay .. The idea of following camera reality-like comedy shows is not new .. I'v seen this kinda of shows before like Episodes with Matt LeBlanc and real husbands of Hollywood with Kevin Hart and in both it looked way better than this-.

The comedy is still slow , there were only a couple of funny lines but not leaving that mark that you'll be wanting more. the writing was weak, even the "cock" jokes by Josh which used to appear funny,here it did not appeared so..

The cast ,, well let's be honest, usually Josh Gad and Billy Crystal are hilarious, there are absolutely no doubts in that but the combination was a bit weak and not tempting or attractive to the expected level.

so overall,, not gonna keep watching it.
