A sarcastic man with immortality looks at terrible horror movies, video games, toys, cartoons and even food, (both popular and obscure) and tears them apart with his sharp wit, meta jokes and referential humor. Also, he's Canadian.
A peppy young woman looks at obscure movies and criticizes them accordingly. Unlike many movie reviewers, Lupa has a much more positive approach and doesn't get angry nearly as often, despite how bad many of the movies are.
Upon watching the first few seasons of this series I must say it's a refreshing take on the sitcom format of "Everyone gather in the living room to joke and discuss a topic" of the pre-millenial period that dominated television. This new structure of replacing the upscale open concept living room with the cramped confines of a vehicle simultaneously highlight the emphasis of modern life on 'car culture' and also the growing disconnect people have with the traditional 'home' roles. it's a stunningly brilliant move to place the 4th wall in the windshield area, simple yet effective replacing the television of the traditional set-up. the characters work well together, and the writing is realistic, if not overly so. and there's a solid sense of series continuity. however there is room to improve in cinematography, and choice of location; it can be difficult to see all members of the cast at times. also the cast does need to on occasion rehearse a bit more before committing the scenes to film.
A good show, if flawed. Also it needs more Lloyd.
