User Reviews

People of Earth, Ep#1: An Earthy, Celestial Delight
5 November 2016 | by skooterthwaiteSee all my reviews

People of Earth is an inspired original series full of endearing sweet, petty and neurotic characters, both terrestrial and extra-terrestrial, all brought to life by a deft comedic cast. Featured members are Wyatt Cenac (former Daily Show correspondent/noted stand-up), Ana Gasteyer (SNL/Lady Dynamite) and Brian Huskey (in the supporting cast of every TV comedy currently in production).

As if this weren't enough, the show is also supplemented by the greatest quantity of taxidermy deer television has ever seen. (That being said, if you are one of the unfortunate few who suffer from chronic Bambiphobia, People of Earth should definitely be avoided.)

Assuming that the episodes that follow are as funny and well told as the first, I hope to be watching People of Earth for years to come.
