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

Hooked. No Kidding!
1 October 2018 | by MikeO_64See all my reviews

While I admit after the first episode, I knew I liked it, but thought I could go either way depending on the next. I am now fully invested in this tremendous show. Jim Carrey doing TV again was the catalyst, obviously, but it has soared past any expectations I might've had. It is equally quirky, and shocking, and hilarious, and above all, supremely well-written. Never talks down or insults your intelligence. Why Frank Langella didn't become a superstar is beyond me. He is an absolutely stunning actor. I am glued to the screen when I watch "Kidding" every bit as much as I was to "Breaking Bad", but for obviously different reasons.
