Not perfect, but kinda great
15 November 2017 | by cheighleeSee all my reviews

I was to give this a 9 out of 10, just because I went to sleep after watching this having a huge sh!t eating grin on my face, which I can't remember was the last time it happened. But I'm trying to be objective here.

While I can write how it's a love letter to 80's, The Terminator, James Cameron, etc, I'm not going to do that. That's probably the least important part, though it adds atmosphere. Comedy in this can be crude, but very self aware, sometimes very predictable, but the timing is everything. And it damn works.

While the acting could be a notch less telegraphed, it's fine. Photography is great, music is kicking all kinds of asses. Visually, it's a great looking show.

Casting is mostly good, and it's worth mentioning that this is one of the last projects Glenne Headly did before her death.

While it starts kinda whatever, each episode gets better. It's a bit raw, and it's damn fun all over the place.

I'm very pleased with this, watch at least first episode and you'll see if it's for you or not.

SEASON 2 UPDATE: They went for something a bit different in season 2, but it still works, still a great show. Can't wait for season 3.
