So I had never heard of this show in any shape or form but after watching the misfire that was What/If I found myself wishing that Jane Levy was in a better show.
Lo and behold, she was.
This show is funny, touching, original, and yet familiar and nostalgic. Great cast, Levy, as always knocks it out of the park, but the lead actor plays doe-eyed kid lost in Hollywood quite perfectly. Tony Danza at his best, and some fine scene stealing stuff from the always underrated Roger Bart.
I've had Hulu for over a year at this point and not once did they even recommend it to me... And it's their show. That's insane. But given that this show has less than 400 votes it would seem they didn't promote it to anyone. If they didn't have the richest parent company in the world they'd go out of business with a model of making great content and only to bury it.
Seriously if this show had been given a chance I'm certain it would have been a hit, it could have been what Johnny Carson was to millions of Americans- the thing you lay down in bed to watch at the end of a rough day so you can drift off to sleep with a smile on your face.
Instead these streaming services seem content to just bid big money over the old shows that caught that kind of lightning in a bottle.
Had your own, right here, Hulu, but you blew it.
