Not A Bad Show

It's a really good show, a new plot, a friendship dynamic, and how you can make your dreams come thru. This show helped me thru my depression and while i was sick with the flu. Beth Behrs & Kat Dennings had great chemistry.

Dark sarcastic humor

This show is one of my favorites and I’ve watched the seasons several times but I must say that it’s not for everyone. It’s a show with dark humor and very sarcastic comments. You need to have a sense of humor which isn’t politically correct. Do not watch this show if you’re some who: - gets easily offended - politically correct - doesn’t have a sense of dark humor - battles fights and tragedies of the world If you enjoyed Deadpool then I recommend this show, the humor is similar

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (23 ):
Kids say (29 ):

The show's odd-couple concept isn't completely original, but it has enough modern-day twists to make it feel fresh and contemporary. Meanwhile, it delivers lots of laughs thanks to some great writing and polished comedic timing.

The sassy banter is smart and fun, but the show's risqué humor and mature themes make it best suited for older viewers. Some viewers have reported being offended by the ethnic and sexual humor in the show that, while often veiled, is very edgy. It's definitely not the kind of humor that appeals to everyone, but many will be highly entertained.
