how tv has fallen

I have never written a film review before but I went through the process of registering on this site just to say that I never knew I hated anything more in my life that this useless TV series! How on earth can a show centered on one's friend having meaningless sex with one's own mother be funny? If this was the only thing on earth that one could view, I would rather take my own life! That's how much I hate this apology of a problem program! I hope it is cancelled before it's 4th episode! What a rubbish!

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: (2):
Kids say: Not yet rated

This awkward series makes attempts at humor with predictable sexually themed gags that range from being mildly funny to borderline crude. The lack of original writing also makes it feel repetitive. Some folks may find the "cougar" theme fun, but thanks to the show's limited premise, it doesn't offer much more beyond this. Plus, the concept has been explored much better by shows such as Cougartown. If you're looking for a real laugh, you probably won't find it here.
