Is It Any Good?
A Hollywood setting and stellar cast come together to create a workplace comedy that stands out from the crowd. Reboot is a bitingly funny satire centered on the inner workings of TV comedy, and no one is safe, not even the show's real-life production company, Hulu. Anchored by comedy pros Judy Greer (13 Going on 30), Keegan-Michael Key (Key & Peele), Paul Reiser (Mad About You), and Rachel Bloom (Crazy Ex-Girlfriend), the series shines a light on how the TV industry has changed, and how it hasn't, in the last couple of decades. And while the characters are all predictably narcissistic, they manage to both lean into and transcend stereotypes by being vulnerable in their flaws. A perfect example of this is the writers' room. Staffed with veterans and Gen Z newcomers who all come to the table equally inflexible, they soon start to learn from and make fun of each other. The result is a light but not shallow half-hour comedy that's utterly bingeable.
