  • Mar 27, 2021
    Not my cup of tea. Extremely boring. Got through 1.5 episodes and quit.
  • Mar 23, 2021
    Talented, brilliant, incredible, amazing, show stopping, spectacular, never the same, totally unique, completely not ever been done before, unafraid to reference or not reference, put it in a blender, shit on it, vomit on it, eat it, give birth to it.

    quite unlikable characters! This is hard bc it does get better but after 3 episodes I just have to wonder if it's worth my time. Elliott's the worst; self indulgence, caddy. Portia (actress*) is an airhead. The bf is a wet noodle. I'm convinced that each character is written as the a millennial stereotype true to form. I kinda think it just reinforces the bad stereotypes. Elliot, the gay character, makes me want to try harder to NOT be that stereotype. The assertive black guy is the best character and Maybee the crazy woman. If you're not a millennial or younger then please avoid. I would rather you be more pessimistic of my generation. Our big accomplishment will only be to destroy this country and bring about another civil war through 5th generational warfare. The headliner, Alia is in the fantastic show Arrested Development. Hey character here is a letdown. It's like the acquaintance that you have to think hard about to find something good to say which incidentally is exactly what she realizes about herself in the second episode. Her character fits her appearance. A bit harsh but I'm Arrested Development that was a good part of the appeal; so unassuming.

However, she plays the same character which leads me to believe that it's not an act. This is a disappointment and off-putting.

    1 of my favorite shows. Such an addictive binge.

    John Early is everything! Such an original premise and innovative characters. It's a must see.
  • Sep 03, 2018
    It's hard to see the humour at first, through all that darkness, but after a couple of episodes, it is savage. There's no holds barred in it's criticism of modern narcissism, shallowness and fakery as this gang of self-absorbed twenty somethings play Nancy Drew. It's a must watch!

    Vapid, very unlikeable people. Prolonged exposure will certainly cause an ulcer. One episode is WAY more than enough.
  • May 22, 2018
    Show incrível, aclamado pela crítica e pelo público com 100% de aprovação, é engraçado (algumas vezes) e dá um ar de suspense, incrivel serie de místerio e sugiro a todos que assistam.

    An entertaining debut for this bittersweet satirical comedy, and a wonderful showcase for Shawkat's talent.
