    Have to admit, the first episode did not lock me in at all. I’m about 5 episodes in to season 1 now and it’s a pretty good show now that they’ve added a little depth and backstory to most of the characters. In the world of garbage series, this is a good show that balances between adult themes and lighthearted, witty humor without shoving any politics in your face (so far).

    It’s a good show but I feel Schitts creek will take most of the gongs.

    I absolutely loved this show.  It was one of the best series I've seen in 2020.  Took one show to get momentum up and running, but when it did it was just "wow" all the way.  Absolutely loved Hanna Waddingham's "Rebecca" character.
