My daughter said no to this "not ready for prime time" pilot
15 February 2018 | by kowalskistellaSee all my reviews

After the first 10 minutes I had to give up watching this over conceived "comedy" pilot. It was more than cringe-worthy. None of the characters, with the exception of Rebecca played by Felicia Simone (who simply reacts or doesn't in any dramatic way), have any basis in reality.

I am reminded of the character Kirk Lazarus played by Robert Downey, Jr in the 2008 comedy "Tropic Thunder" when he says: "Everybody knows you never do a full retard."

What this pilot does with most of the characters is that they do not have a basic human side to them. They are overdone. They are simply props upon which to to hang bad jokes.

It is almost as if the writer or a committee sat down and brainstormed to come up with the most outrageous and inept characters and plot points.

The only good idea was using a movie theater as the location for this turkey. After all, out of all the movies produced in the last hundred years only less than five percent have any merit and are worth watching.

To be fair, one cannot review a show by only watching ten minutes of it. Be assured dear reader, I took the time to watch the whole thing. This time with my 13 year old daughter.

My daughter loved "Corner Gas", a fantastic Canadian comedy series peopled with quirky characters, so she obviously has good taste.

I did not prejudge the show for her because I wanted her unbiased opinion so I simply let her watch it. And I re-watched the first ten minutes and the remainder (with the hope that it would get better and redeem itself).

It didn't. It got no funnier the second time around, just more annoying.

I listened for my daughter to laugh or snicker. Not once did she do either.

I asked what she thought of it after the showing and she said it was quite silly and not very funny.

Now am I going to argue with my daughter on this? Not a chance. Because she was right.

I could critique each character and plot point of this show but I don't have the time nor the patience.

Watch it yourself, it will only take 30 minutes of your life, and see if you end up cringing or laughing.
