Considerably enlivened by the self-effacing wit of Moshe Kasher, this talk show is so fun that it makes you forget that talk shows are out of style. Similarly themed shows such as Brand X with Russell Brand and The Jeselnik Offensive flamed out quickly, and Problematic may, too -- but that would be a shame, because it's more entertaining to watch. For one thing, Kasher is unguarded enough to share anecdotes from his own awkward adolescence and sharp enough to make them funny.

Teens, so invested in figuring out where they stand on various issues, and hopeful that they can solve the world's problems, will warm to this show, which supports its points with Iggy Azalea video clips, social media photos of Kylie Jenner, and, in at least one instance, a pretty catchy rap that name-checks Cher, the Washington Redskins, Kenny G., and Coachella. Like most teens, Problematic will provide viewers with plenty of food for thought.
