so good, real, raw, funny

You truly feel like you're there with the characters. Seth is likeable because he's hard working and a decent human and Jeremy is a fuck up that you can't help but love because in the end he wants to do the right thing. So funny and true to life, a must watch.

Don’t waste your energy

If you have kids don’t watch a lot of drugs and language. It’s boring and has no real storyline unless your apart of the acting industry.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:

Kids say (2 ):

It doesn't break any new ground dramatically or comedically, but this series is affable and amusing enough to make it worth a look. Part of the fun of Everyone Is Doing Great is the notion that we're getting a behind-the-scenes peek at how the cinematic sausage is made, Episodes-style. It's easy enough to imagine that Jeremy and Seth are enacting the real lives of beloved yet also-ran TV stars: the brothers from Supernatural, and maybe, just maybe, the stars from One Tree Hill. Seth and Jeremy still have some of the spoils of fame. They're still stopped on the street by fans, usually rapturous young women, and their background gets them "in the room" at auditions, according to Seth, who's still trying hard to tread water as an actor while Jeremy's let himself go to pot (literally).

But getting in said room is the other rich source of Everyone's comedy: the actor's life, with its diction exercises (Seth recites the alphabet while holding onto the end of his tongue) and humiliating demands (in an early scene, Seth is asked to tenderly make faux love to a pillow for long moments while casting directors watch and criticize his performance), as well as the outsized rewards that keep strivers struggling to stay in the game. If nothing else, Everyone will convince viewers that to be an actor is to sign up for layers of hell that even Dante never envisioned, which it turns out is fitfully funny to watch.
