No candle to the original.

Jordan Peele is a smart guy, but this show is a missed opportunity, and vulgar.

Rated TV-MA for a reason.

It is constantly swearing in every episode, in the old show they did not but in here they drop the F bomb and plently of other vulgar words for no reason.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much swearing
