Pop Culture Thoughts - Season 1
26 December 2018 | by popculturethoughtsSee all my reviews

What seems like a can't-miss proposition somehow runs out of steam rather quickly. While 2013's "Mortified Nation" was a charming and cathartic shared experience about the awkwardness and confusion of adolescence, the television show finds itself quickly restrained by its format. Many of the filmed readings are forced, with amateur performers whose endearing inexperience and nervousness grows repetitive and tiresome, and while there's enough to keep the viewer going, there's an inescapable sense of purposelessness. There are some inventive digressions here and there, like animated recreations and celebrity cameos that keeps things fresh, but ultimately this feels a bit unnecessary.
