User Reviews

This show is *BEEP*.
4 November 2017 | by Dr_SaganSee all my reviews

Five *BEEP* are decided to do a comedic series together. Their main attraction is to say words like *BEEP*, *BEEP*, *BEEP* and *BEEP* and sometimes the occasional *BEEP*.

The acting is total *BEEP*. And the jokes are *BEEP* and *BEEP* based solely on *BEEP*.

One thing I didn't know, was that Eddie Murphy had a brother who died from leukemia on April 12, 2017, at the age of 57.

I just watched the pilot which basically was about the word *BEEP* and how many times can someone endure to hear such words in the course of an episode of a TV comedy.

I don't know if there is an uncensored version of this but in what I watched there was a constant *BEEP* sound in almost every sentence.

The whole premise is moronic and the execution terrible. Also take notice of the "assistant" who is "white/caucasian" running stressed up and down to please his colored masters.

So I'm not gonna check another episode.

Overall: *BEEP*, *BEEP*, and *BEEP*. Not to mention *BEEP*.
