Started off not liking this, but as it went on it got better. Think you have to get use to the style and humor. Around episode 3 or 4 I was thinking I wouldn't watch a season 2, if they did one. By the end, I think maybe I would.

@jasperverf so it was campy huh? haha

ETA: I really like this, it's so funny! And it seems to go even further than the movie in it's use of exaggerated movie tropes and in basically just being quite absurd and silly. I want to see more of this! It reminds me a little of The Spoils of Babylon, but that's maybe just because of Kristen Wiig's awesomeness.

Yeah as mentioned you obviously have to have seen the movie first to appreciate the show. But in any case, if you don't appreciate silly, awkward, absurdist humor, this is not for you.
Too bad, because for those who enjoy that type of comedy, it was highly fucking enjoyable.
Other shows you shouldn't watch: Children's Hospital, Another Period, NTSF:SD:SUV, Comedy Bang Bang, Reno 911...
I for one have "Higher & Higher" stuck in my head.

Well, if you're expecting a high-brow comedy series, then sure you'll be disappointed. It's campy and stupid and silly and that makes it a perfect series for the summer (meaning: not that difficult and just downright fun).
Maybe you should watch the movie first (like i did) and then decide if you want to spend another 4 hours at camp Firewood (like i did, as well).

its a satirical show. if you can't wrap your head around something not being entirely serious an genuine, this show is not for you (also, lighten up)

You will enjoy it a lot more if you watch the movie first, btw.

Yeah, this show is deliberately trying to be so bad that it's good again, but all the trashy attitude, the tongue in cheek and the irony feel so forced that the show is just bad enough so that it's not good any more.

Does this even make sense? ;)

The series has lots of well-knows actors, but i had to give up on this crap after 20 minutes. For a Netflix original i rate it 3/10. Everyone should avoid this crap it's the worse series from 2015. The only reason you should watch this is to see how bad it is. It can't be called comedy because it has no jokes.

Didn't i understand something ?
Did anyone of you got past the pilot episode ?
Is this a joke from these well-knows actors and netflix to see whats the lowest form of comedy people will watch ?
What am i missing ?

edit:
Ok, i understand now how they got all these actors :) they are the original stars that played in the 2001 movie, doh..

(followmy.tv is dead, so remove the space manual if you want the correct link) :P

I still dont understand why nothing was funny, and iam sticking with my view that EVERYONE should avoid this crapfeast. The Writers and directors should be ashamed of themself.

And netflix should just have sold the finished product when they realised it was total shit instead of adding it to the list of netflix originals.
