Idiocracy is true and this show is the proof
9 July 2017 | by See all my reviews

I was really excited to learn about this show when I first heard about it, unfortunately this show turned out to be anything but. Screaming, Fighting, Sex scenes, College drama.. if the premise of this show is Einstein got trapped in the "Days of our lives" then this should is spot on, but as a biography it sucks.. big time! It's got all style and 0 substance. With the budget you had, you guys could have done so much better.
