Premise seems like Leverage.

I never saw Raising Hope. So, I shouldn't watch this because their fans have their panties in a bunch?

I've liked all of Garcias shows except Yes, Dear and The Millers. Maybe I just prefer his single cam stuff.

This one so far seems good. He does a lot of weird, lingering montages that last minutes for some reason in both episodes.

Thoroughly enjoyed both episodes so far and can't remember giggling constantly all the way through a show since....?

Low brow humor for sure but man, the writing and actors are stellar. Also, the whole concept is pretty clever and original.

Hope it gets more exposure. Check it out.

Rooster throwing rolls of toilet paper out of the car window was weirdly very sweet. Ah 2020.

This was a very enjoyable limited series, doesn't look like it gained any traction but it's a solid mix of comedy and Covid time capsule. Last episode was surprisingly over an hour long.

Sorry for a 2nd post in this thread but I hope this shows gains more audience traction. It's so good.

Some of these smaller shows/series with low budgets contain a lot of heart and passion but don't get seen widely. This Fool (Hulu) and We Are Ladyparts (Peacock) are two examples. Both brilliant but no chatter.

I'm holding off watching episode 9 since I kind of don't want it to end or thinking I may be disappointed. Yes, I know that boarders on mental/emotional health illness.

You won't be disappointed, and it's double length episode.

I am on the episode where Rooster is in the back of the truck when it takes off, so I think I am on Chapter 5. This show really is wonderful, and I look forward to hopefully having enough time to finish it up by the end of this weekend.
