  • WTF?

    I was told this show was excellent, superb, captivating...

    The last time I wasted my life like this was while enduring the Pilot of "Men of a Certain Age"...

    Of course, it appears to be authentic, but, to be honest, it is complete and utter crap.

    I will not give this show a second chance.

    The abusive language, the slurred accents, the painstakingly ugly strippers, the hollow clack of the typewriters where there should be computers...

    Truly, the USA MUST be the most magnificent country on the planet...

    Yikes, just watching this one Episode made me realize how lucky I am not to be American!
