The jokes are piled high in this well-acted and well-written show, with visual gags, pop culture references, and conversations about national differences all getting played for laughs.
The quick pacing and crisp dialogue make the show seem much shorter than it is and the hilariously shocking finale alone is worth the price of admission.
What’s even better, though, is the enormous photo of our male lead, Paul Drexler, on the front page of the T-C‘s Arts section. He’s naked and holding two basketballs in front of his crotch. Kris Krug took the photo, Paul made a hilarious expression, and a photo editor’s dream was borne. You can’t beat comic nudity.
During the photo shoot, we actually worried that this shot (and others like it) might be too risque for mainstream papers like the T-C or the Sun. Apparently not.
