It is now just one long, familiar episodes. This has nowhere to go from here.
15 April 2018 | by speaktomenowSee all my reviews

Sadly after an interesting first season with a strong cast and the promise of mysteries to unfold what we have now is Barney from How I Met Your Mother hamming it up and delivering overly camp performances in which he gets to put on wigs and lots of false noses and make up.

By the second ep of season two, what we have landed on is a sad and tired formula:

1 - The orphans outsmart Barney from HIMYM 2 - Barney from HIMYM then puts on another disguise that no one except the orphans can see through 3 - The narrator tells us how sad their lives are 4 - Barney gets caught out 5 - End of episode 6 - Stay tuned for next episode where we repeat this all over again, but with a new wig and fake nose for Barney from HIMYM.

This is literally being dragged out for cash now. It's kind of sad that in the early days everything Netflix did was really high quality and it felt different from mainstream network TV. Now unfortunately the rate of 'misses' and 'fails' coming out of Netflix is the same as it is from network TV. This is one more example of not enough time and care taken with the script where Netflix are just desperate to rush out content. Don't even mention the long list of failures - it is now longer than the hits.
