Fix Your Credit ASAP

I am Ginger Bidgood  live in Florida and I am a happy woman today. I told myself that any credit specialist that could change my Life and that of my family by fixing our credit report, I will recommend their services to the world, perhaps this review.  If you are in need of a credit repair, DUI fix and chex system I will encourage you to reach out to XAPCREDITSOLUTION at GMAIL dot COM. He raised my score to 810 from low 560 and removed all collections and charge offs from my report. Words alone can't express how grateful I am to XAP. I highly recommend XAP to everyone.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:

Okay, we see the irony in reviewing a show that reviews things, and we get the central joke of Review: that everything in life is now up for critical commentary, and everyone's a critic. It's a sly, subversive joke indeed, and one that Review is too smart to underline. Instead, the show focuses on the suitably absurd repercussions of MacNeil doing stuff like asking his beloved wife for a divorce in pursuit of a new experience or asking his kid's babysitter to her senior prom (and then doing cocaine with the popular kids in the bathroom).

But in contrast to what you'd see on lesser shows, MacNeil's sitcom-ish hijinks actually have consequences. At the end of the divorce-review show, wife Suzanne doesn't laugh at her wacky husband's crazy job and agree to forget it all just in time for the next episode. She actually dumps her husband, who then careens miserably through subsequent quests. The mix of over-the-top and realistic is odd, but it's also funny and fresh.

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.
