Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Detroiters is a comedy series about two best friends in Detroit struggling in the competitive world of advertising. It contains cursing, comic violence, and occasional sexual innuendo. Drinking is visible, too. Friendship is a major theme throughout the show. It's more appropriate for teens than other shows of its kind, but it's not meant for younger viewers.
Is It Any Good?
This entertaining workplace comedy features lots of funny moments thanks to some good timing and solid editing. The jokes have a bit of an edge but not enough to take away from the lighthearted nature of the show. Appearances by folks such as Jason Sudeikis and Malcolm-Jamal Warner also makes it interesting.
As with SNL, it gets silly, and some of the narratives are a little absurd. But the chemistry between Sam Richardson and Tim Robinson makes all the craziness come together in the end. Ultimately, Detroiters isn't the kind of series you take too seriously but a show you tune into when you want to tune everything else out.
Did we miss something on diversity?
