Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

The edgy series, which is filmed as a mock documentary, relies on lots of irreverent humor to tell Gigi's story. However, it quickly gets bogged down by endless cheap laughs and obvious stereotypes, which makes it more tiresome than funny as time goes on.

David Krumholtz's performance as an elderly woman is excellent, and there are occasional scenes, especially when Gigi interacts with non-actors, that will elicit the occasional chuckle. It's a series with a lot of potential, but due to a lack of story or consistent writing, it really doesn't have much to offer.
