Pretty hilarious
14 November 2017 | by terrencepatrixSee all my reviews

My score is based on what the show is trying to be, which is loosely a sci-fi with a bunch of ridiculous inept characters. It's main gimmick is time travel utilized to stop a dystopia future from taking place. Two of our main protagonists, Tiger & Wolf, send a game back in time with the idea that the individual who beats it will be their savior. Right, like 'The Last Starfighter', which the main character Hutchinson immediately points out which should cue you in as to what kind of show you're in for.

The rest is bumbling through time making mistake after mistake creating wide ranging ripples changing the lives of those connected to these characters. Over the top violence from Tiger & Wolf, Hutchinson trying his best to keep up and often times even leading. All the while there's subtle hints, jokes, and puns about other types of shows and movies involving time travel. There's even a whole episode about James Cameron poking fun at the Alien and Terminator franchises.

First and foremost this is a comedy so don't expect any hard science fiction. Yes it's crude, absurd, silly, weird, and never for a second takes itself seriously, but that's why I personally liked it and would definitely watch another season.
