Flippin Fantastic!
29 September 2016 | by Gretel1006See all my reviews

Wow! This show is so amazingly good! I wish more people new about it. If it was on a well-known cable channel tons of people would be talking about it. I really like the grittiness of it and how they show the juxtaposition of cultures/rich/poor all within Miami.

The casting is great. Martin Freeman is like nothing I've ever seen him in before. In fact, he creeped me out a lot and normally Martin plays the kind of guy that is so likable. Just the small looks he gives, like when a one night stand told him she didn't want the breakfast he made special for her. I was waiting for him to lash out at her. He didn't have to say a word, but you could see the heat in his eyes calling her many vulgar names.

Edi Gathegi. What an actor! He gave such a commanding performance and I couldn't take my eyes off of him whenever he was on the screen.

The story kept me wanting more. I watched 9/10 episodes in one day and it has been a long time since I've found a TV show that I've wanted to binge. I don't want to have to wait for season 2. Oh man, I hope there will be a season 2! I also loved that I could watch the series on my TV through Xfinity On Demand. I will be spreading the word about the show. So many people would love it.
