NOT original in the least. Poorly done ripoff.
15 August 2015 | by See all my reviews

This sad, unfunny snore-fest is NOT original or refreshing as so many people here are claiming it is.

With just a tiny effort to know what they are talking about before posting their review, ironic I know, they would have easily found out that this "remake" is really a direct "ripoff" of a brilliant Australian show from just a few years ago.

It's all over YouTube and has was so controversial in the first place it was nearly banned from TV in Australia.

This show doesn't even come up with its own topics to "review". The first episode of this dreck uses the same topics of its much funnier and, indeed, original counterpart. How is that original? Andy Daly is boring. His forced "acting" style is so awkward I couldn't help but feel embarrassed for him. His "lovely assistant" is just not necessary to the show and is clearly only there to be the token "pretty girl" all shows in the US seem to require.

All the extras suck, as well. It's as if they all went to the same attended the School for Wooden Actors and even failed at that.

Since the ideas are a ripoff of the original it's pathetic that the writing of this show is so poorly and lazily done. They had great source material to draw from and they couldn't even to anywhere near a quality job.

Just skip this mess and watch the real original and refreshing Review with Myles Barlow on youtube.
