It's hard to watch: most of the characters are unlovable and two dimensional, and the episodes are - simultaneously - too short and too long. They are too short because there could be a good series here, and it needs better than 20 minutes to get it "real". But they are also too long because the jokes are flat and badly delivered.
I'm struggling through because Hugh Laurie is a good actor, and it's hard to believe he'd want to work in something so completely lacking in quality - I suspect that the plot summary he was sold on was nothing like the actual scripts.

But there is a good plot here, if they could just concentrate on that in season 2 instead of trying to appeal just to turd joke fans and the current "no-attention-span" audience model.
(Plus "The Expanse" won't be here for months and months - and that's if we are lucky ...)
