User Reviews

 
The most brilliant satirical style comedy of all time.
11 February 2018 | by noahpapapapSee all my reviews

The style of comedy used in both the series and the original film was ahead of its in 2001 and still ahead of its time in 2015. At least that is my theory justifying the amount of negative reviews on the film and series.

The writing is brilliant while complimented perfectly by a talented cast who each played their roles without flaw. The writing, acting, directing, etc. are like puzzle pieces that fit perfectly to create a picture that is yet to be duplicated. This series is one of a kind in the best way possible. The satirical style of comedy created by the people in front of the camera and behind the camera is its own style that nobody else is quite able to replicate.

All the negative reviews are over my head. I cannot express how much I loved the series, I cannot say enough good things about it, and I cannot give it anything less than 10 stars.
