User Reviews

 
The most skilfully directed and creative stories on television.
24 April 2018 | by judahtheclippersfanSee all my reviews

From "The Dirties" Matt Johnson's Nirvanna the Band the Show is the most unique experience I've had. It takes the real world element to a point where the comedy can flourish from while not becoming too gimmicky and a crutch. The humour derives from the interactions, jokes, references to film and the charm between Jay and Adam. The rewatchability of the show further boasts its merit as one will notice references, foreshadowing and background jokes they may have missed. Would recommend to everyone.
