Worst Episode of the Series By Far
28 May 2020 | by campbellcm-83709See all my reviews

I started watching IASIP a couple weeks ago on Hulu and so far, I've loved the series as a whole. There are plenty of great episodes but like with every series on the air, unfortunately there are some not-so-great episodes as well. Unfortunately, this episode falls into the latter. The use of the first-person perspective felt like a forced gimmick and became unwatchable halfway through the first scene. . This combined with the utter lack of humor made for a boring, unfunny, and pretentious episode that should have been tossed in the writer's room wastebasket way before being aired. Being Frank and Mac & Dennis Moving to the Suburbs are a one-two punch of supposed comedy that fails to hit its mark. In fact, punch is probably the wrong word to use, so let's say whiff. Hopefully in future episodes, IASIP writes more about barroom antics and failed get-rich-quick schemes that have made the show the comedy mainstay that it has become.
