Trivia

The project bypassed the traditional development, and was financed with private equity money. The creators were able to make the show exactly how they wanted, on a timetable that suited them. So, they did the first two episodes, and shopped them around different networks. See more »

An Underrated Gem.
24 April 2016 | by magiccircleSee all my reviews

I've never written a review on here before, but I was quite honestly surprised at the negative reviews on here and also on other sites.

This show has the very best mix of hysterical and quirky and I just love the way creators (Mike and Phil) and their alter-ego "animal" characters all interact, also with the guest cast members/comedians of the week. It really captures the light and shade of urban New York perfectly, and even manages to make it all look somewhat edgy, with a killer soundtrack to boot, (honestly, the music is awesomeness!!)

In essence, this show does perfectly what recent New York based show "Vinyl" was trying to do. Vinyl could really take notes from these guys, they are doing it right. I love it, it's a fantastic show. Watch and enjoy! You're welcome🙂
