Expensive Trendsetting

It's cool to have a party on the Lower East Side for your birthday. I did it myself and had a great time, and I think pretty much everyone else did too.

It's not cool, however, to have a birthday party on the Lower East Side in a super hip club/hotel thing that charges over $10 for drinks. I mean, I don't mind the practice per se. If people like swankiness that's great...but not for college students. I mean, I went all the way downtown and could only pay for two drinks (one for me, one for my friend for her bday), and I figure - if I'm going to spend so much time on the subway I should be able to actually get drunk for my troubles, or at least afford a couple of drinks. Leave the hip bars to the i-bankers.

For real - you should get the birthday girl trashed for her birthday, and yourself trashed for being such a good friend.

Lets be honest, the first episode was a bit weak and OTT with blood and vomit. But after that the show goes from strength to strength, with an amazing performance from Timothy Olyphant.

Comedy: Some of the humour is a bit crude double entendre style, but overall its mostly a poke at these sorts of neighborhood TV shows about happy familys. The interplay between husband, wife, and daughter is brilliant and the timing and delivery is spot on. Some gross blood and guts humour but for the most part very enjoyable laugh-out-loud, we all know a person who does that, sort of humour.

Plot: As previously mentioned first episode was lacking a bit, but try at least 3 episodes. Not a huge amount of formulaic plot, but rather action comedy classic style of trying to remain hidden while loads of things go wrong. If you are looking for a clever sub-plot with many twists, not the show for you. watch Avengers: Infinity War free online

Characters: Olyphant delivers some seriously good comedic timing, Barrymore is outshone by him, but does work well in scenes where they are together. The daughter has some good moments, and the neighbors kid is down-right hilarious. Some of the interactions with the neighbors seems a bit forced and stale, but they serve a purpose.
