It gets so much stronger post episode 4, where all the story threads start to come together. However I'm kind of pissed at the ending. Whilst I had fun with it, I don't feel that we're guaranteed a second season. The last episode isn't very satisfying.
The first episode was so poorly written & acted, but the second episode was an improvement. I'm not sold on everything (the teens are a major weak link), but the first 2 made me smile enough to keep going. I'm certainly glad they're only 30 minute episodes; I was expecting them to be an hour long and there's no chance that would've worked.
Yeah for me it's perfectly serviceable feel good TV, easy viewing, light hearted despite how dark the concept is and I enjoy the acting from Barrymore and Olyphant but I'm a bit like... eh? How will they spin it out? I think I've just got one episode left to watch and while I could easily watch another 10 episodes of it, I don't know if it'll hold my interest to wait for a second season.
Yeah, I finished it last night and was a bit disappointed with the finale. I know networks want multiple series out of shows, but I'm not sure the premise behind this show can sustain more than 1.5 (at 10 shows a series) seasons.
It's a shame because I like the chemistry of the actors and characters, but tt's effectively one joke being dragged out. I'm not sure I'll be interested in waiting a year for another series.
