This is genius comedic display with a great plot.

I started this show with no expectations. I saw the actors and like each one of the humorous characters they have portrayed on great shows like “Veep” and a brilliant yet ‘sub par in critics eyes’ show titled “Making History,” which was cancelled after 1 season. Both shows were made even more fantastic because of these two A list up and coming kings of Comedic Improv. This show has no more violence nudity or drug usage than 5 minutes of the 5pm news. Sometimes it can be a little awkward watching it with a youngster but with the internet and school, this is minor league Locker Room Talk. Bravo!!!

With sly comic writing that delightfully punches up a could-skew-dumb premise, this sharp YouTube series is lots of goofy fun for adults and mature teens. Sam Richardson (who viewers may recognize from Veep or Detroiters) and Adam Pally (of the late, great, mourned Happy Endings) are great together, basically two spoiled and entitled fish out of water who are horrified by such mundane experiences as commercial air travel.

Once their luxury lifestyle has been canceled, there's nowhere to go but home, but there are changes there too -- Ronnie's room has been transformed into a salon for his mom's pet dog Taffy, and Alf's dad (legend Keith David, saddled with the world's worst fat suit) is "officially talk-show fat" but the weird thing is that Alf can't tell if "he's the saddest man alive or he's got it all figured out." Ronnie and Alf are now broke guys in their 30s with no education, no prospects, and not much to hold onto. As fun as it is to watch these two charming man-boys wither under pressure, it's even more fun watching them figure out how to live in the real world.
