So I was one of those idiots that sat through the first season of Avenue 5 utterly perplexed how they managed to get someone as good as Hugh in a comedy and fucked it up so badly, they had everything in place in terms of store to create some interesting comedy events but it was all rather flat…
Season 2 was surprisingly green lit and you figure with Covid and the long break and it being on a massive network in the US changes would come to save this 💩 Red Dwarf is ripe for ripping off with a larger cast of characters.
I just finished watching the first episode and I’m honestly shocked how did they manage to not learn from season one and then try the same jokes in the same atmosphere with the same cast of characters and still go in the same unfunny circle and worse than all of this is they have some seriously good actors
- Hugh Laurie Managed to have a successful carrier in the UK before blowing up in the US, amazing in Blackadder!
- Zach Woods is basically playing a slightly less weird version of his character from Silicon Valley and comedic wise is about the only one landing
- Suzy Nakamura and Lenora Crichlow do a good job in pushing forward the narrative of the story and being that corporate stooge and the captains moral compass and of course Nikki Amuka-Bird whom is perhaps the biggest shining point in this garage show
I have no idea what Gad is doing I’m guessing the show runners let him design his character and he came up with a shit jack black anyway I hate ranting about shows, more so a sci-fi but this show is bad, don’t waste your time by watching this absolute crap
