Yeah, pretty woeful!Rating: 1 likes, 2 dislikes
For this first episode they've basically followed the plots from the first couple of episodes of the UK original. They've managed to compress a couple of episodes into one by removing the swearing, vulgarity and all the edgy stuff that made it so good. (They even bleeped a couple of very innocuous words). In doing so they've also managed to excise all the humour! Worse still, the acting and casting was cringingly bad, particularly Pearlman playing Jay... yikes! I had to watch the UK series 1 immediately after this to take away the bad taste. Why bother remaking another show if the best aspects of the original are discarded?! My advice is scrap this entirely and watch the UK version. It's crude, rude, perfectly cast, masterfully written, brilliantly acted and best of all, completely and utterly hilarious.
