Comedy Can Be Hit-Or-Miss
28 May 2019 | by jeremycrimsonfoxSee all my reviews

To the people who say this show is disrespectful: It's not. It's supposed to be a satire meant to make people laugh, especially since nowadays, politics have become too heated a subject to talk about peacefully. But then again, we live in an age where anyone can be easily offended by just one little joke to the point of sparking a controversy.

So anyway, this is a good show. This only gets seven stars from me because the jokes are hit or miss. Some joke I liked, others fell flat. But I was not offended by them because I understand this is meant to be a satire of the historical figures involved and a show that is supposed to poke fun at events both historical and current, which is supposed to be the aim of the comedy series. If you are offended by such portrayals, all I have to say is do not watch.
