I'd be ashamed and If I made this
25 April 2019 | by dannydaviesSee all my reviews

Some of the worst camera work and editing I've seen on TV. The acting wasn't good but the camera work, angles, editing really was poor and made the acting look worse. How does stuff like this get 4.8 and put on TV? Awful, not even funny and its supposed to be a comedy? I tried my best to get into what was going on yet none of it made any sense the way it was done. Did it really take 4 years to create this? Looks like it took 10 minutes with no storyboard or script!
