A dark romantic comedy. Tom and Janet have been happily married for years. But a visit from a mysterious stranger leads to a dead body, a lot of questions, and a tense couples' trip with friends who may not actually be friends at all.
It's kind of funny, but it needs some more regulars - especially women. I'm sure there are some female comedians in the Seattle who would jump at this opportunity - I was a bit surprised that no female cast members of "Almost Live" wanted to come back (or were asked back). The spoof of the Beverly Hillbillies was amusing. The recurring "Perv Appliance" skit is funny, as is the spoof of "Breaking Bad". "Renton Abbey" has potential, but maybe it should be moved into a split-entry instead of a trailer in a field. "The 411" segment is too short, but then I suppose John Keister has run out of jokes. I used to watch "Almost Live" after SNL, but lately I've been migrating toward reruns of Star Trek: TNG.
