The advertising for this show is wonderful, so much so that I thought I might really like it. Unfortunately, I was wrong. It's not a bad show, I just don't think it is a very good show. I can see that they have a few common themes and like some comedy shows that satire real life and attempt to have the viewer draw parallels, this show takes that approach in a fairly weak and unfunny way.
Along those lines, and please excuse me for using South Park as a reference in an intelligent discussion, but South Park manages to draw real life parallels in ridiculously crass yet hilarious ways. This season alone South Park has covered immigration, separation of children from parents by ICE, the impact of cannabis legalization and the impact of having China as a major trade partner. Those are fairly serious topics yet the humour was so absurd that I couldn't help but laugh at those South Park episodes.
This show is connecting the dots but what is missing is the laughter. Every joke just seems to fall flat. And by "connecting the dots" I mean the ways people interact without being their true selves... that is the running theme so far but where's the punchline? I'm three episodes in and only because I did manage to laugh twice briefly during the second episode will I give it a few more episodes to see if that was just a fluke. I got zero laughs while watching the first and third episode so I'm not sure how much more I can watch.
Most of my rating is for the uniqueness of the show and the images of cakes between the segments, my goodness do I want some vanilla cake with buttercream frosting! :)
