Funny show about current topics. Needs a little fine tuning.
So I'm from US and have never watched a "UK panel show" that people refer to, but this seems like one. Carr is "The Host" but he really just banters with people, it's not like he judges contests or anything.
Carr is funny but in an odd British way that takes some getting used to. He has an interesting chemistry with Katherine Ryan, like they might be friends IRL, that they should do more with. The Mrs took an instant dislike to Katherine, but I think it's the role she's playing.
DL Hughley is phoning it in big time, and he looks like he is super high the entire time. He has some funny bits here and there but mostly seems out of place.
The guest stars are hit or miss. Some are great, others are...ok. Haven't seen any truly awful ones yet but only 1/2 way through the season.
This show alternates between being hysterical and slightly amusing.
The show feels shorter than it's 30 minutes. I think they spend too much time chit chatting and joking in general before they get to the main topic. I think they can do a little fine tuning and get it down. The "data lady" Mona Chalabi does present some actual facts to counterbalance the yuk yuk's.... but someone needs to dress her better. Her outfits are a bit wacky and out of place.
There is some cussing/foul language but I don't think it's over the top. I don't think I've heard too many F bombs.
Overall it's funny and different... kind of reminds me of a funnier Politically Incorrect (the old ones anyway) but with comedians.
Hey Netflix - are you reading this? You need to give Nicole Byer her own show STAT. She's a guest star on a couple of these and SHE IS HILARIOUS.
Watch it. Have a cocktail or 4. It's funny.
