Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (2 ):

The quirky series, which is produced by Fred Savage (of The Wonder Years), offers a mostly fictitious look at the folk-singing duo's professional lives by combining comedy narratives with their musical performances. Much of the show also focuses on their disastrous personal lives, which, luckily, provide lots of material for their act.

It's meant to be lighthearted and fun, but the humor will seem flat to those who don't appreciate seemingly endless crass sex jokes, which often are central to the songs featured here. But Garfunkel and Oates fans who have been following their career over the years will certainly find the series fun and their music appealing.
