I just found the characterization of the British characters to be immediately offputting and cringe. the Brits are already plenty good and proper at flooding BBC/ITV/E4/Dave with their own terrible comedy I don't need a meta joke about Brit accents being funny turned into an entire series

if I want to laugh at overdone UK characters I'll just watch Peaky Blinders and enjoy the bits with Tom Hardy

Idk does the show drastically change its tone after the pilot episode? that's all I have to go off of here I can't bring myself to watch anything more than that and I usually have a 3-episode policy before I give up on a show I haven't seen before.

He doesn't like tea which is a drink they enjoy in England. Rather he'd prefer coffee

Shows always gotta have the too-mean thing, like how everyone is super cruel to Jerry in Parks and Rec. This show's version is Ted's hatred of tea.

I get people enjoying this show as a balm in These Trying Times but it’s just not for me. The jokes are lame, literally, they have no bite. I guess when I want to end the evening with a comedy/drama I want it to scourge the world I live in.

i got through season 1 and maybe even enjoyed it. second season trying to get more serious while also OFF THE WALL. i'm barely interested in my own real life bantring why do i care about two rich people's?

the christmas episode and the she's a rainbow one actually had some charms but overall the second season is making me wonder why the fuck i'm watching this. it's just too damn normie, if i am using that word right

It is so ‘normie’ but I’m old enough I don’t care when people are normie. Goodhearted earnesty isn’t a force I want to fight. It’s just not for me.

i can't imagine how exhausting it must be for that guy to do the Roy Kent voice for take after take, because it's extremely exhausting to listen to. and also not funny
