Utopian Brooklyn
3 October 2018 | by elliott-43See all my reviews

It is so misleading to say this show is about a pot dealer. As if Thornton Wilders' "Our Town" is about a janitor. Yeah, there's plenty of smoke and some exposition about the nuances of sativa and indica blends, but rather the Guy is the perfect, contemporary observer who weaves together wonderful, sweet stories of people coping in the big city, but with such a buoyant spirit I just want to drop what I'm doing and move to Brooklyn, which is more of a magical state of mind than a brick, asphalt and concrete borough of NYC.

I've read some disappointments with the highly produced HBO continuation of the original web series. Well yeah, the original first season was delightful, brilliant with the atmosphere that was accomplished with no budget and compressed into 8 minute episodes. I would have been happy if it stayed in that space. But kudos to HBO for recognizing the talent here, investing in it, and allowing this team to see where it can go with all the tools they could use. They took it to an excellent place and I can't wait until season 3.
