It's As Funny As Cathy Guisewite's Cathy Comic
12 January 2016 | by jegd-847-631407See all my reviews

'Shitty Boyfriends' is a slanted view of personal relationships from a woman's insight.

My first thought watching episode one 'Better Off Alone' was how it's not reaching for a larger audience as it's designed for that minority of people who can't find love and blame it on the people they're attracted to.

If EP1:'Better Off Alone' presented a dialogue from the guy's point of view there might be the semblance of a great show here.

The quick scene where Brad is given his handmade Valentine Card by Amanda and responds with the "I Have To Read All Of This?" reaction; It could have been a perfect setup. It's a common scenario that fails, because while we see Amanda's hurt we don't hear the exaggerated DUMB MALE LOGIC that a guy would use in that situation ...

"It was really long! What am I supposed to do; Read it?"

The oblivious Brad was underutilized as a backdrop for Melissa Hunter's character to get pity. It's basically a lot of whining from someone who isn't identifiable to a broader audience. It reminded me of the character Ross from 'Friends' and his peevish nasal complaints ...

Imagine a Spin-Off-Series that's only about Ross Geller and you'll understand why 'Shitty Boyfriends' doesn't work. Not enough viewers will relate to it.
