Gripping drama, great comedy, superb acting and depth.
1 August 2019 | by wtfcaniuseSee all my reviews

Wow,

After the first episode I was unsure what to think. I didn't find it particularly funny, some of it was almost cringeworthy but then I kept watching.

This show has incredible depth, humanity, heartwarming moments, drama and comedy all rolled up in the guise of a B grade comedy that disarms you and drags you along for the ride.

Very impressed, this is the epitome of not judging a book by it's cover.
