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).

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

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

They tend to go slow and long.

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

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

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).

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

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

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.

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

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

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

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.

Overall very boring.

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.

Bonding surely has intriguing premise.

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

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.

Funny and intriguing.

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


The story is very compelling.

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.

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

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

Surprisingly really enjoyable .

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

Compelling storytelling.

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

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

Thoroughly enjoyable.
