You can have a quality situation show that is very exciting and interesting and keep it at 15 minutes.

But, it seems the characters and overall tone of the series promotes the idea of insecure, flawed humans disinterestedly engaging in aggression for reward on others without real world consequences.

It told the story of two best friends reconnecting, it was quirky, funny and intriguing.

Get real, this is what non boring standard people get up too!

Thoroughly enjoyable.

While there are likable characters and enjoyable moments of comedy, a lot of it feels satirical of its own subject matter as it plays various scenarios for cheap laughs, while its laughable soundtrack is used so sparingly as to break up the already tenuous flow from scene to scene.

Surprisingly really enjoyable .

Fourth, the theme of love in all of it ambiguity is compelling.

Very little investment but I felt like I enjoyed it a lot for what it was.

Bonding surely has intriguing premise.

Highly recommend this show, oddly refreshing comedy, really enjoyable watching the different characters and their lives on and off the job.

A smart entertainment resulting of the unexpected third kind encounter between The Monty Python, Zed from Pulp Fiction (Quentin Tarantino, 1994) and the complete YMCA (Village People, 1978).

From an European point of view (you know, this is the continent where people actually HAVE Sex instead of just talking about it or selling their idea about it to Netflix), this is a boring, non-sexy and really unfunny show.

Life would oh so dull if everyone liked the same boring things.

Funny and intriguing.

It is much more entertaining than other productions that have tried to address the topic and butchered it (Fifty Shades, I'm looking at you).

So, be prepared for a 100-minutes sheer lunacy as obscene as entertaining.

The story is very compelling.

The storyline is disjointed and smushed together, most likely due to the short runtime of the 'episodes.

The premise was promising and interesting, but the characters were so predictable and uninspired, especially after the first couple of episodes.

They tend to go slow and long.

I am loving these new series with strong female protagonist, it's different, educational and very entertaining.

The acting is on point, the characters are perfect, the backdrop is fun and exciting and the theme is liberating.

Just binged the first season, would love to see longer episodes but enjoyed it so much.

Doesn't present any new ideas to the table of film making or to the viewer, but it still is a simple and enjoyable film to watch.

Zoe Levin & Brendan Scannell have a perfect chemistry on screen and keep this short yet fascinating show rolling.

It's funny, witty, and overall entertaining without being a flat-out basic comedy like the many Netflix churns out regularly.


Overall, it's worth a watch to see an entertaining look at a commonly misunderstood topic.

Hats off to a very original and entertaining group of people.

It touches a taboo subject in a light and enjoyable way.

Very entertaining show can't wait for season 2.

It was funny and enjoyable.

A pure cash in trying to attract all those people who have such depressingly dull lives that they rushed out and bought into 50 shades of grey.

Compelling storytelling.

Overall very boring.
