Wow. Thank God for Netflix and the opportunities for artists to get their work out there. I didn't know any of these people before watching this show. I was blown away by the talent, storytelling and various approaches. Overall, I found this to be very non-traditional comedy. While not every moment or every episode was show stopping, the collection as a whole is. I was so impressed by the variety of characters and nuances in everything. I am massively appreciative of all the time and talent that went into these performances. I am looking forward to watching this again and seeing more from these people and others like them. Bravo Netflix, Bravo Cast. Keep Going!
