Mulaney is a comic, but he is not an actor. He could in theory grow into one, but he seems very, very ill-suited to it in the early episodes, awkward and stiff reading lines instead of talking to an audience. This is not his wheelhouse.
There are jokes that don't just hit the floor, they feel almost like a sitcom within a funnier film designed to parody bad TV writing.
So the show seems either a subversive deconstruction of the laugh-track sitcom blueprint or a stupefying misfire built around the blandest star ever.
This one is excruciatingly unfunny, despite the good-natured young talent at the center.
John Mulaney is a great standup comic and former writer for Saturday Night Live. But he's created a humorless sitcom that feels like a bad Seinfeld ripoff.
