Very, very funny - but not for kids or easily-offended-adults
28 March 2017 | by angie_blaneySee all my reviews

I stumbled across this show, and I'm so glad! It's hilarious! There is an over-arcing plot in the police station at the beginning of each episode (which is the only part I'm not 100% happy with, I'm not sure where they're going with it or how it adds to the shows development), but each episode is really funny overall.

The writing is fantastic. I really like the way it all comes together, and can't think of a single episode I didn't like.

However - I have a favorite - I suggest any newcomers start with Season 2 Episode 3 - it is the funniest, grossest episode so far.

Start there, and then go to the beginning and binge! There's no laugh track, the writing is quick and funny, the actors mesh well and even the kids have some really good lines (as opposed to just being a foil to the adults).

Definitely worth the time.
