A Weak Begining To A Great Show
1 August 2018 | by badmanlykmeSee all my reviews

This episode introduces us to Gus who is a on set teacher for a television series called Wichita and Mickey who is a programme manager at a radio station. Both leads don't meet until the final scene of this episode which I think didn't work to the pilot episodes advantage.

Having seen the whole 3 seasons of this show, this episode is by far one of the weakest episodes of the entire series and could be skipped and you wouldn't have missed much of anything. I think the episode that follows after does a much better job of officially introducing these characters since they properly meet.

Some jokes didn't really land and having know what the characters are like since I've watched the series in this episode everyone seems to be a bit out of character and haven't found there flow yet but I highly recommend this underrated netflix original because it gets more consistent each season and is a really lovely and sweet show that you'll miss once you've finished.
