  • To start describing TV as "lobotomized" and "eating worms for money" is brave and catching and puts the standard high. Because now we expect from the who that it'll not be the same.

    9.0
    After this sharp start, the story gets a little low as we get to know the characters meanwhile the enjoyment is still up thanks to the funny lines. 1. Stories
    a) Matt and Danny
    We are put in the middle of this net of relationships that hold the characters together. We get to know some basic qualities all around the great friendship of Matt and Danny. How people feel towards them, why they left, where are they now. They are good and well-described characters. b) Matt and Harry
    Having a romantic line with the "I love you, I love you not" relationship of Matt and Harry, is aimed to keep female audience and I think it works. Their difference in opinion is quite important to keep them away, while it's also shown that the feelings (at this point from Matt's side) are not over. c) The executives
    It's not clear for me who is who. If Jordan's president then who's Jack? Why is he rivalling with her? Otherwise, Jordan is funny and likeable but the fact that she's always smiling is a little irritating. d) The big three
    Again, I have no idea who they are, why are they so important. We can only get to learn that they are close to each other. 2. Characters
    I've got the feeling that the characters are a little one-sided. Good friends, great professionals, bad professionals - everyone is either good or bad. One exception is Wes, whose both sides are introduced to us. 3. Why I'll watch again? Because I want to see how they'll reach the high bar.
