Storyline

As small-town girl Heather gets to know her new street-wise roommate Kesha, she starts to suspect Kesha may be an escort because of her dubious and sketchy behaviour. However, Heather is non-confrontational in the extreme, and her inability to address a series of Kesha's red-flag moments leads to the hilarious unraveling of Heather's life.

This Tepid Canadian "Comedy" Should Just Die Already
11 January 2020 | by buckshottrainerSee all my reviews

And I say "comedy" in quotes because we're really stretching here. Katie Uhlmann and Trish Rainone are at it again, to the chagrin of many I'm sure...but here we go! Alright! Season 2! Hopefully they've learned a thing or two from season one and fixed the writing...

Of COURSE they haven't.

Attempting a second season of a mildly-humours online comedy series takes a lot of guts, considering the first season fell flat on so many levels. Katie Uhlmann gives another go at the reigns as director; a decent attempt, although she didn't really have much to work with. The script is still terrible and the actors' performances-yes, the most "professional, weathered, seasoned" we get in Canada who haven't moved south yet-were a smidge better than what I've seen from performances by teenagers in high school plays. These are union actors (who pay ACTRA dues) and they're NO BETTER than many of their non-union counterparts! (Maybe a topic for another discussion.) This may be forgivable if the episodic structure was more conducive to building dramatic tension. Why are there no cliffhangers at the end of the episodes?

I think it's time to give up...move on...to something new and original. Maybe comedy just isn't your thing ladies. I thought the funniest part of the whole series was when one of the funeral goers asked, "Why would a lawyer need a roommate?" And that's sad. First and foremost, comedy has to be funny, and MRIAE season 2 is not. And maybe, JUST MAYBE, get a consultant who knows a thing or two about writing story arcs before you spend other people's money to fund another disappointing train wreck that would have been best left in a drawer somewhere in Sault Ste. Marie.
