This show can be so wrong, but that's half the fun
5 May 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Comedy Central is a vast wasteland of unsuccessful TV shows based around standup comics, but "Review" is a refreshing winner. Reviewing life itself (and playing the inanities of life to the extreme) is a simple concept, but it works, and really just churns out one ridiculously uncomfortable moment after another. But it's from that discomfort that the big laughs arise. Andrew Daly is perfect for the slightly hapless Forrest MacNeil, and his exasperated wife and wryly awkward cohost are my favorite parts of the show.

It's a genuine surprise how quickly this season has flown by, and I really hope this gets picked up for another go-round.

7/10
