Really rough show that knows exactly what it wants to be, but fails at being all that funny. It kinda tries to tap into the same “wholesome humor” of a show like Ted Lasso but fails.
Think this show is trash
I watched it because Pop Culture Happy Hour was so pleased with the makeup of the writer's room (Native Americans writing for Native American voices). And I was enjoying it...until it suddenly all changed. And it went from good to great. Watch the whole season - it's worth it. Michael Shur seems to have the magic.
it's a snooze. It's pretty bad when my most tolerable character is that annoying side character (Bobbie Yang).
alright here we go. This is the episode where the plotlines finally arcs off. The pilot was all hints but nothing to pull you back. This is the episode that matters. In the first episode Ed Helms' Nathan Rutherford is blinded by his own version of history suffers from what we refer to as white fragility. He can't take the idea that his dream gets overwhelmed by everyone else around him. Something most people who don't fit his demographic have to live with every day something that Regan point out to him this episode. Their relationship is interesting. Because they genuinely like each other as far as they're each concerned they're both being very good friends to each other. The show however goes lengths to show that this isn't really true. More importantly Regan herself begins to point that out to Nathan showing a good degree of self-awareness.
It's definitely going to be interesting seeing how far they take this both in terms of her relationship with Nathan and their relationships with their respective communities.
Pretty decent and thats okay! It is A LOT of Ed Helms
