I tried to watch. It's just not good.
14 May 2017 | by thedraconianvikingSee all my reviews

I really tried to watch it and give it a chance, I really did. I could barely handle it though. It was just poorly made all around. The dialogue was horribly written, the characters are unrealistic and stereotypical. White people were snobby and prissy and black people were sassy and violent. All around not worth seeing. I could barely handle watching what I did. Maybe it gets SUPER good at the very end. But I really doubt it. And a big excuse I'm seeing is that it's a "satire" show. That's definitely true, but that does not make it good. Just because you're making fun of something stupid by being even just as/more stupid it still makes you stupid. It can be done right, in things such as Monty Python, but those types of things had clever writing and have real jokes, not just an overused gag that it relied on like a crutch. It had great potential, but it fell flat.
