I tuned into see Caleb Foote because I loved him in the kids are alright (RIP) so was sad he wasn’t in it more. Still the premise intrigued me. Kind of like an extended Black Mirror episode. Not a huge Ray Romano fan but I’ll tune in for sure

It reminded me a bit of Maniac on Netflix which Billy Magnussen also had a part in. It’s a very weird dark comedy, but I’m interested in seeing what they can do with the story in just 6 episodes.

There are 8 episodes total.

Cristin Miloti is good, tried and true, but I feel like they keep pushing Billy Magnussen in these high profile projects and... I don't know what he brings to anything.

I just watched this first episode last night and felt like it was one of the worst TV pilots I've seen in a while. It felt like it didn't really have anything worthwhile to say, had no truly recognizable or relatable human emotions, and was just trying to get by on a combination of absurdism and shock value. Even the final moment of the episode felt phony, like the entire point of her dad fucking a blow up doll when she walked in was just because it was random and crazy.

I was hoping for something genuinely stylish and interesting, but this felt juvenile and lacking in substance. This is not what I expect from HBO. They've had quite a few shows I really enjoyed in the last couple of years, but this felt like them throwing something at the wall to see if it stuck, and I really don't think it did! This show is definitely a pass for me.
