Old school comedy with a „twist"
I really like it. Old school comedy with lots of music, main characters are lovable. Nothing new or fresh but quite entertaining. Some of the jokes (and song lyrics) may not be quite appropriate for 14 year olds (and definitely not appropriate for a younger audience) but…
Overall, worth watching. :-)
Downgraded my rating from five stars to four stars after the second episode because, apparently, they changed the music part (not that much R&B and Hip Hop anymore but some weird mix of Rock and whatnot) and the „dancing" has also been eliminated completely. The musical part was actually the best thing, not sure why they changed the concept?!
Watched the pilot on TV and had to have the season. So good. He was hilarious in The Office, I can't wait to see what crazy things he gets into. The other stars are great as well.
