Unexpected bombshell of a finale for a short series .. but not forgetting the nice fresh American/British comedy ;)
5 December 2015 | by Aktham_TashtushSee all my reviews

Well the series is over and the ending was just so unpredictable .. i am seriously still trying to fathom what or why this happen .. the comedy was really good, Rob Lowe, Mathew Baynton and the hilarious Joel Fry they did an amazing job in here.

The events scenery arrangement was creative and thrilling and always drawing you into wanting what is next to happen. Again thou, the ending was a wowzer,,, i really did not see that coming especially the "narrative" style makes you think that every thing will be fine as always in any "comedy" show we've ever seen... but no .. out of the blue .. they hit you a with a huge surprise.

The show overall was a nice combination of American/British TV style brought to us by NBC and SKy1.

I am kinda bombed that "that is it" for the show but to think what would happen next !!! would just be some weak speculations and maybe not enough for a new season.

So the after all ,, the show was good ,, the comedy was fresh and genuine, so farewell to a short nice series ;)
