Is It Any Good?

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

If you know and love Black and Showalter from their other projects -- including Comedy Central's Stella or the summer camp spoof Wet Hot American Summer -- you're already tuned in to their antics and will appreciate what they're trying to do here with their deadpan delivery and irony so thick you could spread it. But if you've never heard of them before and prefer your comedy a bit broader, you'll likely feel their jokes fall flat.

Even diehard fans will be a little disappointed with the show's storylines, which don't yield as many laugh-out-loud moments as you'd expect from these two. Black, at least, was much funnier on VH1's I Love the... series.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
