Is It Any Good?

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

This adult-oriented comedy series mixes romance, humor, and science fiction to create a show that balances the silly and the surreal. The characters, most of whom are too immature or clueless to recognize that their Hollywood dreams will never be fulfilled, spend their time writing, eating, and hooking up with the help of social media apps. When the show's dreamlike and creepy "end of the world" story comes out of nowhere, it's quickly and smoothly woven into their lives.

It's hard to define what Now Apocalypse is really about, which makes watching it feel like you've tuned in to some sort of televised theater of the absurd. Some will find it tiresome, but viewers who like mature, sex-positive coming-of-age humor will find it worth checking out.
