how can something as good as this be canceled? makes no sense :o
Family Tree another great comedy from 2013! Chris O'Dowd is awesome too bad it got cancelled after one season.
I love Spinal Tap, Best In Show - well, everything Christopher Guest does, so this was a must see. Very funny.
It's one of those vicarious embarrassment mockumentary comedies, but one I enjoyed a bit more than others of the sort (e.g. The Office). The humour stems from the extravagant characters Tom meets, benefitting from the fact that they're not overexaggerated so as to become just caricatures. The more and more bewildering things Tom learns about his ancestors are cleverly written (as far as I've seen). However, I feel like the writers were already struggling to come up with plotlines by episode 2, so I really don't think there'd be material for a second season.
What's this..... the promise is completely boring... and it's amazing how many bad jokes (those are supposed to be jokes, right?) they can but in there.
