I think Kelly Skallkrossare pretty much nailed it. Like her, I fear that too many people will not get it and so turn away from this fabulously clever show. Hope not.
This show is a breath of fresh air. It's concept is brilliantly new. It seems to me that many are lacking the understanding of how the "sitcom" part of the program is showing us how kevin views the world, and how he drags everyone into it, but whenever we are exposed to all of the characters when Kevin is not around, we see the real world. I'm excited to see what Neil is like in the real world, we haven't seen him without Kevin's lense. I really hope this show doesn't get down voted to oblivion, as this format; and the story presented; have so much to offer.
Annie Murphy is awesome, but unfortunately her supporting cast are cliched caricatures
She deserves better
I really don't know how you overcome the Kevin half of the show, the 2nd hour did get better but Kevin and company were still there. If this is all there is then I'm gone, I can't stand stupid, Annie deserves better than this
I was pulling for it because we love Annie from Schitts Creek but I was disappointed. I found the jumping between single camera & multi was very confusing. Am I watching a drama or comedy? Speaking of the comedy part, it lacks comedy. I found it overacted and not funny at all. I think sticking to the drama side with dark humor in that story is better because it's more cohesive as a story. I actually thought my TV. Was messing up and switched channels when the show switched to "comedy". I really hope you can fix this because I think it could work but I'd be shocked if you got renewed for season 2 as it is now.
I was excited to see this. The premise is fascinating, but the execution came up short. I needed to see more of her life before she was jolted by the news about Kevin's betrayal. I don't buy that she was ever happy, and her leap to plotting his murder is too far, too fast. I think I expected more of a Pleasantville setup. Disappointed.
I was really looking forward to watching this TV show, but was very disappointed. First off, the pairing of the lead couple is ridiculous. Given his over the top immaturity, his stupidity, & the zero chemistry of the leads, the pairing of the two leads is just ridiculous. The sitcom portion of the show, in my opinion, is just plain stupid. Not funny at all. Then the reality portion I found to be depressing, & not even remotely entertaining. All in all, this show is a complete & utter fail.
Excellent premiere! Annie Murphy is great in the lead role. The sitcom in the show actually comes off spot-on and has tight writing to pull this off. Can’t wait to see where the series takes us!
Acting was great all around, but the back and forth between the canned laughter, at-home scenes and gritty realism scenes was too disparate for my taste. I get that that’s the point, but I just didn’t dig the execution.
