Lewd, Crude and very funny...
30 April 2017 | by See all my reviews

I had heard about this show but soon realized I don't get the IFC channel, but I do get AMC and was able to watch it on there (for those who may be in the same boat with IFC). I went through the first 5 episodes in an afternoon and laughed my butt off. Azaria's character Jim is both despicable and lovable at the same time because you just don't know what he's going to say next. Everything that comes out of his mouth is either a story with an immoral 'moral' to tell, or is just his brutal, frank way of being a man who just doesn't give a cr*p what anybody thinks. Peet (AKA Jules) is the team's owner who needs Brockmire's name (albeit disgraced in the public eye) to help revive her bush-league baseball team, in an otherwise would-be small town where most people look like they haven't showered in weeks. The chemistry between owner and announcer is dysfunctional, yet undeniable at the same time. And then there's the young naive intern Charles, pitted in-between them and trying help anyway he can while generally astonished at the behavior of just about everybody around him, including the game of baseball itself which he barely understands. Everything clicks nicely and the laughs are there for the taking, after the initial shock of what is said and done by the many characters involved. You don't have to be a fan of baseball to enjoy this show, but if you are, you will only appreciate the shows humor and setting even more. I hope they can stretch a lot out of this shows concept, because the story line works great, but for how long will only be determined by the quantitative talents of the writers. But for now, so far so funny, very very funny... I eagerly await episode 6...
