one episode, done

Really bad skits, bad impersonations, bad writing, not funny at all and a waste of air time. They tried everything in this show to get the laugh. Smoking Pot, Obama shooting craps, half naked Palin, Spray on Pants with guys genitals blurred out, blue Snoop Dogg, and just terrible skits. Not funny at all, not even a fa-shizzle.

This title has:

Too much sex
Too much swearing
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking

Is It Any Good?

Parents say: (1 ):
Kids say: Not yet rated

OK, so not everybody will relate to all of In the Flow's cultural references. (For example, do you even know who Filipino boxer Manny Pacquiao is, let alone know him well enough to appreciate a spot-on impersonation?)

But nobody can deny that Crockett has a real gift for mimicry. His takes on Simmons, Woods, and Chappelle are particularly uncanny -- and once you Google "Manny Pacquiao," you'll see that even that one is pretty darn good.
