News & Interviews for Nobodies: Season 1
It's hard to envision Nobodies sustaining itself for even one season, let alone another one. The bumbling efforts to make Mr. First Lady a fame-and-fortune feature film already seem played out after just the first few episodes.
The series could live on its ample supply of good jokes alone, if only the nobodies were properly elevated in a story meant to be about them.
Yeah, it's amusing, but in a forgettable sort of way. Too much about it resembles too many other shows.
Later episodes, as personal business between the leads come into play, and wholly fictional characters arrive, do perk up.
Beyond correctly identifying Hollywood's core insecurity and layers of inferiority complexes, Nobodies isn't committed to being satire or parody, nor is it especially insightful.
Dorf, Davidson, and Ramras aren't interested in getting particularly deep. They are looking to provoke bigger laughs and more visceral cringes. And, for a few nobodies, they do a pretty good job.
TV Land's latest offering joins a small-screen mini-boom in what could be called the showbiz cringe comedy: a sort of scrappy, Louis C.K.-style backlot vérité.
But even though Nobodies works from a familiar playbook and, like its bumbling heroes, can try a little too hard to ingratiate itself, it's still fun, zippy, and Seinfeldian in its ability to braid together plot based on various humiliations.
Nobodies is funny, and in a few specific details, it's quite original. In others, it does unfortunately fit a template that seems difficult to escape in the current cutting-edge comedy scene - self-conscious but deliberate navel-gazing.
Audience Reviews for Nobodies: Season 1
Apr 08, 2017I was intrigued by the first episode, enough to watch the 2nd but I didn't quite see how it could maintain itself for an entire season. I'm glad I did! While to me, it was a restatement of the first episode, I feel like the show is getting into its stride and I can see it isn't just more of the same ole. I am very much looking forward to the next episode.
Apr 05, 2017I really enjoyed the first episode. Very funny with some great cameos. I look forward to seeing more!
Apr 05, 2017This is such a good show. People have been saying it's like Seinfeld and I agree. I wish they released the whole season at once because I like to watch shows that way.
