It had potential...
21 June 2019 | by sethompson-80775See all my reviews

Yes, the jokes are distasteful... but if they were actually funny, I could have gotten over that. The Lincoln episode had a chuckle or two, but the Freddie Mercury episode had none. The next episode's guest was Anne Frank, so I got out fast. Who wrote this garbage? I still think as a idea, it could be funny.
