The theme restaurant where Titus works is based on Jekyll & Hyde, a similarly themed restaurant in Manhattan, New York. The scenes in the restaurant were actually filmed at Jekyll & Hyde located in the West Village See more »
In the opening sequence, the SWAT team member's weapon changes position between shots of reaching down into the bunker and the women emerging. See more »
I've never been a big binge watcher, but I was so grabbed by this show right from the first episode that I just couldn't stop.
This show is full of beautifully gleeful charm, with a central character who can't stop smiling and no mean-spirited jokes anywhere in sight. The whole thing is just consistently happy and can really cheer you up within seconds.
I admit that the story does get a little tiresome at some points, where there isn't as much joking, but the series manages to keep reinventing itself in new and fun ways that brings back your interest immediately.
It's also a very subtly clever satire. Whilst the majority of it may seem like silly fun, the back story of the doomsday cult, the theme song and a whole host of other stuff is actually very intelligent, and of course, a lot of fun too.
You've got to watch this series, whether you want to binge it or not, because it's such a refreshingly happy show that stands out amongst the crowd of idiotic sitcoms and burning dramas.
