I work in medical/research ethics so this show gave me serious hives. Yikes.
Not terrible, but not worth watching. It's like "My Name is Earl" or "Impastor", but not as good.
This show is Saturday Night Live for the type of people who complain that SNL hasn't been good since [time frame when they were late teens/early 20s]. It's only the bland and dated parts of SNL. Not terrible, but it's never going to be great.
Natasha Rothwell's episode is amazing and hilarious. I watched it 3 times. Henry Zebrowski's episode is unfunny, offensive, and disgusting. All the others range from "pretty good" to "okay" depending on your taste.
What if the movie "Airplane!" was a police procedural????
I love a good unreliable narrator. Plus, musical numbers!
In all seriousness, it's a good depiction of mild anxiety and depression, and the kind of self-destructive way one feels when their life is not right. It's too bad the name is so terrible. When will people learn that sarcastic titles don't work?
I was worried that a network late-night show would ruin Stephen Colbert. And I was right.
This documentary is *comically* shallow. Condensing ten thousand years, half the planet, and hundreds of separate civilizations into four hours? Ridiculous. It only serves to perpetuate the idea that Native Americans are some kind of extinct footnote in human history, and the lack of any connection to the current era is dismissive of the more than 70 million Native Americans living today.
Very similar to the book/movie Cloud Atlas. If you liked that, you'll like this.
