Tv Season Info
The show, written by Zwigoff's wife Melissa Axelrod and based on a T. C. Boyle novel, inspired waves of laughter-and had I been stoned I might have laughed more.
While we'd like to think that maybe that meandering feel is the point, instead it just felt disjointed.
It's a stoner comedy without the comedy, which just leaves us with three mild, irritating guys without much ambition attempting to do something that is clearly a bad idea.
Amazon's Budding Prospects sets up interesting characters and delivers a nostalgic 1980s Northern California.
Terry Zwigoff's foray into TV is exactly what you'd expect from the man who gave us Bad Santa and Ghost World: offbeat, misanthropic, occasionally crude and often wonderfully deadpan.
