Just a longer Jack and Dean sketch. Bland and poorly acted/scripted. Unmemorable
14 July 2016 | by thegirlhubSee all my reviews

I've always quite enjoyed Jack and Dean's YouTube sketches, but I feel that their comedy only translates in short bursts. Their characters are unrealistic and exaggerated, so having a story line felt forced. The dialogue didn't flow and was very unnatural, the comebacks were too quick and so much of it made little sense. Nothing about the series stood out as different or as something I'll remember, or want to tell my friends about.

Shot nicely and obviously had a big budget, but nothing to write home about in terms of acting or story lines/back and forth between characters. I got a free trial to Fullscreen to watch the series but I felt disappointed after a couple of episodes and struggled to finish it out.

Was really hoping to enjoy it but it kind of fell flat, for me. Look forward to reading more reviews but in general I don't really know what the guys were going for with this. I feel like Jack in particular has a lot more to give, it's a shame that they played it so safe.
