Tedious People
26 August 2015 | by schmandelSee all my reviews

Another show that I wanted to like that managed to persuade me to think otherwise in only a few episodes.

The characters were mildly amusing at first, but are neither particularly likable or not likable; they are mostly tedious and affected. Their one-dimensional personalities evidently contain no surprises after only a few shows.

The scripts so far haven't offered any novel premises or even particularly good jokes. What they all share in common seems to be pointlessness. An episode is a unit dose of tepid comedy smooth and featureless from end to end, definitely not a short story.

I don't see this one being renewed but I do hope to see the cast move on to better things.
