Oof, this was soooooo baaaaaad. I was embarrassed for Mayim Bialek; she was truly cringe-worthy, although the rest of the cast really wasn't much better. Swoozie Kurtz has so damaged her face, I expect her to play Jocelyn Wildenstein in the TV movie. (Jocelyn Wildenstein's "accomplishment" on Wikipedia is "known for extensive facial surgeries.")
This was so terribly unfunny. I watched "Miranda" when it was on PBS, and while I occasionally found it humorous, I'm not a fan of embarrassment humor overall and there were too many instances of Miranda embarrassing herself for the comedy. That is not Mayim's strong point in any event.
What was the deal with the "friend"? Are they establishing out of the gate that she's a big ol' bitch? If she didn't want Kat to bring someone who might be just a friend to her re-wedding, she shouldn't have indicated a plus-one. For that matter, are they friends or just people who went to high school together? If it's the latter, why even invite her? If they're friends, wouldn't Bridezilla know that Kat isn't dating anyone?
I like Cheyenne Jackson, and I think he acquitted himself well enough here, but I don't buy him as a straight man. Now, I would be the first to argue that being openly gay doesn't mean an actor can't play "straight," but in Cheyenne's case, I didn't believe it for a second. Matt Bomer, Neal Patrick Harris -- I have no issue with believing it when they play heterosexual men.
At the cafe, nobody impressed me. Leslie Jordan basically just plays Leslie Jordan in everything he does, and it looks like they're established the Black employee as "sassy Black woman." No thanks.
They really, really, really overused the fourth-wall breaking. As a couple of other posters have mentioned, Burns & Allen did it well, and so did Better Off Ted. Kat's spit take at the audience in the first two seconds put me off. It's like those cheesy host introductions on bad TV shows (well, I guess that's true here).
I might give it another shot, because I like Mayim Bialek, but I'm not hopeful. I completely forgot it was on in the first place & only watched it on-demand.
