Customer Reviews

Where is the second half of this season?

This is a fantastic series, but where are episodes 4-6? Likewise for Season 2??

One Star

Shows its time. Like "The Office" only worse.

topical, and intriguing

sharp, biting, even incisive satire, but the language is consistently coarse, vulgar, and apparently improvised, however often witty, even poetic, the camera work is spontaneous enough, in keeping with the series' up-to-the-minute pretensions, to make you dizzy, just like its disorienting editing
