What is wrong...
3 August 2015 | by mare-lst-13See all my reviews

This show premiered couple of weeks ago here and I watched a rerun of one episode. Barely actually. Let me start from here. Most of modern day comedy show don't seem to be funny at all and they all use this similar recipe. I don't know what is it, but they all seem the same to me. And most of them seem to address modern day issues in society. For example, in this show, there was this episode where they addressed black racism. I was outraged. That seems to be harsh, but it's not in the way you think. It's completely OK to show this issue and I agree that it seems to be a big problem in USA. But for god's sake, this is comedy. If you want to show how racism is all wrong, make a documentary. I just wanted to watch a show where I can relax and laugh and enjoy it and have a great time. This just made me mad about the world and stuff. Why 1 star? Well for this reason. This show is completely hypocrite. In one episode, they address racism, but then in the other one, they completely mock Russian culture. That's why it's 1 star. That's why I was outraged. I can't even explain how mad and upset I get when this show is on, even when the commercial of it is on. I don't know if there is any funny aspect of it, I was too occupied with thinking. That's what's wrong with this show. That's what's wrong with most of today's shows. I need to laugh. I want to laugh. How come Friends, Will&Grace, Malcom in the middle, Married with children, Modern family and many similar shows are so damn enjoyable and funny. Simply because they are about comedy and laughter, not about issues. I hope this one doesn't get a 2nd season. It would be a waste of money.
