Storyline

Jeff, aka Mr. Pickles, is an icon of children's television, a beacon of kindness and wisdom to America's impressionable young minds and the parents who grew up with him - who also anchors a multimillion-dollar branding empire. But when this beloved personality's family - wife, two sons, sister and father - begins to implode, Jeff finds no fairy tale or fable or puppet will guide him through the crisis, which advances faster than his means to cope. The result: a kind man in a cruel world faces a slow leak of sanity as hilarious as it is heartbreaking. Written by Showtime

Surreal, Dark and Funny
3 September 2018 | by ptuk-1See all my reviews

This show gets me, it's one of those strange experiences where the truth becomes stranger than fiction. I wouldn't even class it as comedy, not that it isn't funny but there's so many subtle undertones, honestly I'm not surprised by the low rating right now, it seems there's two categories of Jim Carrey fans, those who love his goofball antics Ace Ventura, Liar Liar, The Mask etc and those who love his serious side, Truman Show. Eternal Sunshine of a Spotless Mind, Man on the Moon., I personally love all his films but if i'm honest I gravitate more towards his serious roles and this is where this show resides for me.

You'll either love it or hate it but I think if you leave your expectations at the door you might just discover something brilliant here.
