I give the HBO show "Hello Ladies" a 10 out 0f 10. I guess the format is most similar to a sitcom with no laugh track. This show is well written, well cast, well acted, beautifully shot, and has great nostalgic music/"soundtracks at the end of each episode that ties the whole mood of each episode together. I watched it on Amazon Prime. If this show was canceled, I hope they bring it back. I never even heard of the show before I watched it, and initially watched it because I couldn't find anything else to watch. Once I started watching, I couldn't wait to watch the next episode. It made me laugh at different moments through-out. They should have done a better job marketing it.
It's a kind of show you either really like or you really hate. The premise of the show is nice and Merchant is funny in his usual Awkward way but i think the main problem is when in the main guy in a show keeps failing all the time and nothing good ever happens to him eventually people lose interest. We all love an underdog story which usually ends up with a win but with this show, it looks like he will always fail and put his foot in his mouth at almost every opportunity which can be a turn off for most people. I will probably watch it till the end of the season to see if anything changes, if not then I don't see the point in watching it again.
Like other reviewers I could only make it through part of the pilot before turning it off. I was hoping it would be light hearted fun but was filled with uncomfortable attempts at humor that had me cringing every few seconds.
