Expected much better from the names involved and Showtime. Barely made me laugh, most episodes I dozed off and was so weak that I didn't even felt the need to go back. A pitty since I love this guys.


This was one of the best improve/skit shows I have seen in a while. Loved that they just kind of setup a stage and premise and let these 3 shine. You could kind of tell they each "owned" the concepts for different scenes and then just riffed off each other. Would love to see the outtakes.


This is the worst show I've had the misfortune of watching in a looong time!!! Nothing is even remotely amusing, never mind funny. I expected so much more from the talent that's on the show. DON'T watch this steaming pile of crap. 0/10


If you can suspend some disbelief about the science of it all it can be a pretty fun show. Didn't take it too seriously and watched with a friend- we had a good time. I would say I expected a bit more from these names and Showtime but some of these comments are a bit too harsh imo.


Whole season so painfully boring. Really, no need to waste a minute on any episode.


When you seriously consider the show runners and the style of comedy these guys are associated with, who in their right mind says they were expecting "more" from this show? If anything, given how ambivalently I've felt towards nearly everything each one of them has been in save for Reilly and a handful of Armisen sketches, I was pleasantly surprised how grounded and straight-forward this show is. Is it a million jokes a minute? Not even close. Is it laugh out loud funny throughout? Again, no, remember the cast. Is it at least consistent in its dopey lower-budget voice? Why, yes, yes it is. Am I ever going to return to it and watch my favorite episodes? Of course not, but consider, the vast majority of comedy shows serve that kind of adequate-enough place-filler space, and at least they're not asking for a huge investment of your time. Tuck it in your pocket like a snack that's not quite what you want or need, but fills the void until you're ready for dinner.


Like other comments have stated, with the names involved I expected a lot. It's not 'laugh out loud' funny, but it can be a bit goofy from time to time.
