Another review stated ‘I spend most of the time laughing AT the show, not WITH it — but that’s definitely still a win in my book. That’s why two episodes in, and I already can’t get enough’
Like its characters, the show lives in a world of convenience where everything falls in its lap without even pretending to work for it.
Leaps in logic abound so much that it’s not enough for the viewer to suspend disbelief for this show; you need to carefully detach your brain, keep it on ice to preserve its innocence, and reattach it when you’re done.
