Short Review: 100 Words or Less (no spoilers)
Although the fish-out-of water story gets a tad repetitive over the course of the season, there is a certain charm to this show that makes it a lot of fun to watch. The cast is solid across the board, with Catherine O’Hara shining the brightest. The plots are sometimes a bit rudimentary but that just adds to the show’s easygoing appeal. It’s not pretentious and it doesn’t try to be something grandiose or revolutionary. Over time, you actually start to care about these formerly horribly selfish and self-absorbed people, and it’s refreshing to watch their evolution and (sloooow) learning curve.
Final Grade: C+
Thanks for reading!
