Whoever cast and directed this pilot is a genius. Every single one of the characters is spot on perfect for the part, and they each play their roles like they've been leading up to them their whole lives. Highly entertaining without hitting you over the head with stupid lines that are supposed to be funny. No canned laughter or slapstick crap. Just clever scenes and dialogue with likable characters that you'll wish you could binge watch. I really hope this gets picked up to series. It's so much better than most of what's out there now. The lead is a new actor I'm not familiar with...very likable. Flea from the Red Hot Chili Peppers is a kick in the pants. Shaq is, to be honest, a guy I don't usually care to watch. Most of his stuff is self aggrandizing and boring. But he obviously loves this role, and doesn't mind embarrassing himself to be the epitome of a big, lumbering lovable teddy bear. The other primary roles are played by comedy veterans whose faces will be familiar and whose acting is a treat to watch. Nothing is overdone, and the show never resorts to cheap stunts or vulgarities to get a laugh. Excellent!
