Storyline

On his birthday, Thom Payne gets the gift of insignificance and also a new boss. He suspects his ED pills are interfering with his anti-depressants, leaving him with neither happiness nor... happiness. In a culture that reveres youth - a culture he helped create - Thom needs to figure out what his purpose is now that he's halfway to death and nobody cares what he thinks. Because in a world where any Kardashian is trending up, perhaps the wise among us would heartily embrace trending down. Written by Showtime

Misunderstood
30 June 2015 | by See all my reviews

this is one of those shows, which i could see being easily misunderstood to the general public. to me the show is a satire of the ill-conceived notion of happiness we have advertised to us on a daily basis. and the writers do a wonderful job at portraying, and realistically making fun of, these little idiocies that are implanted within society today. the show shines a dimwitted light over the senseless actions and activities people take part of everyday, while also highlighting how advertising companies do whatever is necessary to direct you attention to the product. the actors do great at playing their rules, each character has their own set of emotions towards each problem, and you truly feel Thom Payne's (Steve Coogan) anger and dislike towards everything. the show was written great, and every actor in it is great, i just hope we get too see more it.
