The show was Matt-less during the first episode, but once he showed up, it was witty hilarity. We loved his ability to make fun of himself by becoming a parody of an average Hollywood TV star. We realized at the end that we actually cared about the British couple at the center of the show. Beverly was always hard to like, because she was a stereotypical serious female shrew, but after she slept with Matt, she became a better character. Also, if you really think about it, every time she was being a buzz kill or judgmental, she was totally right. Overall, this was subtle, enjoyable and pretty original. We are glad it found its voice before the finale. But we sort of wished we were watching Lyman’s Boys instead (the British version, of course).
Season grade: B
