A Fantastic Show That Hasn't found its Audience Yet
This show actually has nothing to do with Nirvana the actual band. The joke is that these two guys are trying to start their own band but are so naive and cut off from the world that they have no idea Nirvana is already the name of a band. Once you get past that bizarre concept, the show is actually pretty great.
It's very much, as explained by the show's creator Matt Johnson, a mix between Flight of The Concords and The Ali-G Show. It's a straight narrative with elements of real-world situations. The humor is never cheap, always very well thought out and clever. I hope this show keeps going because I need more of it in my life. NOW.
One, if not, my favs
Jay and Matt and Jared and Curt and all those guys. This is one of the best shows created. I'm very biased because I was obsessed with their webshow and loved Johnson's 'The Dirties' and 'Operation Avalanche.' I was a bit worried when this was coming to Viceland, just because of other beloved shows coming back and not being quite there as their original state. Not the case here- this show is still brilliant, original and funny. And that's what matters, it's a comedy that actually succeeds in making me laugh. It's just so good. If you aren't into it by episode 3, it might not be for you. But for those it is for, man, you will fall in love.
I've never felt so confident
I've never felt so confident in saying this is one of my top 3 favorite shows. I keep rewatching it and it just keeps getting better. I'm obsessed and season 2 can't come soon enough. GET INTO THIS SHOW!
