Upper-class Twits of the Year.
Verified purchase
Hilarious little oddball. It's often described as a Downton Abbey parody, but the humor is a lot darker, more violent and surreal than you might expect from that description - at it's best there's a Monty Pythonesque quality to it. While most characters in Downton are generally good-hearted and the servants are usually treated kindly, here the upper classes are useless buffoons who treat the servants like garbage, and in return the servants generally give back fawning, undying loyalty, up to and including committing murder on the family's behalf.

A whole parade of historical figures blunder into the Bellacourts' orbit, including Helen Keller, Mark Twain, Sigmund Freud, and Charles Ponzi. So help me God I thought I was going to bust a gut when Leon Trotsky and Mahatma Gandhi get into an an argument and Gandhi bellows "Sounds like you're a member of the BITCH CASTE!" It's stuffed with little throwaway jokes, like how one of Lillian (Natasha Leggero)'s middle names is "Hitler" (yes, it's stupid, but I laugh every time they say it) or when one of the servants, who is trying to get out of servitude by landing a factory job, casually mentions that she has an interview with the Triangle Shirtwaist Company. And kudos to the writers for almost never explaining historical references and trusting the audience to get it.

Hilariously Irreverent, just the way I like it (SPOILERS)
Verified purchase
I love this show. It is horribly dark and lampoons some really sensitive subject matter, like Jeepers getting raped by a woman, or how all the women's suffragettes are hilariously unattractive. And my God is it funny! A show where virtually all the main characters are women and whom make most of their jokes about their own character flaws is a creative and awesome idea.

I wasn't expecting it to be as dark as It's Always Sunny but it is, and Thank God for that. Safe, normie 'humor' is painfully and uniformly not funny. See Amy Schumer or most mainstream sitcoms in 2019 for an example of what I mean. This show was amazing because it broke every rule that constricts modern comedy. We need a lot more of this kind of stuff in the future!

This is such a funny show. So smart and clever
Verified purchase
This is such a funny show. So smart and clever. I admire the writing so much so clever. Sometimes it can feel a bit low budget but sometimes strangers with candy. There is a staggering amount of talent. It is intersting to see Kristina Hendricks ( I think that is how you spell her name) in this show. The lead character the one who plays Lilian blows me away I think she also writes it along with the actress playing Beatrice. It's such a treat!!!!!

Who knew 1902 Newport could be so funny? Everything they do on the show (right down to the pinch of arsenic to obtain pale cheeks) is accurately done with the result of pure comedy gold. Everyone is perfectly casted, with Michael Ian Black perhaps at his best as Peepers. I bought these episodes because my stupid cable on demand skipped 5 episodes in the middle of Season 2 (thanks a lot, Optimum).

One of the funniest shows Comedy Central has produced. I've recommended to many friends who have purchased it and love it as well. It does have adult humor, as most CC shows do, but overall totally worth the purchase.

Crazy but Fun
Verified purchase
This show is far from perfect but it made me laugh and I watched the whole first season, anticipating each episode as it was released. Way over the top, all over the place, vulgar, and outrageous humor with a feminine (but not necessarily feminist) perspective. If you enjoy such things, this is a show for you.

Such a shame to waste talented actors
Verified purchase
It is a shame that there is nothing lower than one star. Perhaps Amazon should offer trailers of shows as they do of movies. One or two minutes of this was more than enough. I had hoped that the cast would mean that the show would be humorous, or, at the very least, entertaining in some way. However, that was not the case. The writers could be 3rd graders with a passing knowledge of history and a love of bathroom humor - although that may be giving them more credit than they deserve. The stereotypical characters have no substance, and the writers' efforts at getting the audience involved with a plot, characters, or even soliciting a laugh - all of which were basically is non-existent - falls as flat a punctured balloon. How anyone can compare this to Downton Abbey is beyond me unless all the focus is supposed to be on the costumes and the exterior of the building. It fails to show either a cynical, tongue-in-cheek, or realistic view of either class, although there are certainly things that could be taken from that era and dealt with humorously.
