S1 alone is enough to make most adore the show. The characters are all pretty lovable and the setting is extremely funny. Imagine Pawnee from Parks and Rec but 10x crazier and funnier. I xan honestly recommend this to anyone who likes sit-coms.

The black lady making disgustingly cringy attempts at comedy while making fun of legitimate neurological difficulties others face is unwatchable. Not funny, tries too hard and fails.

This is the funniest sophisticated comedy show that I have seen in years. Shot in a documentary style of "The Office" and "Parks and Recreation", this show is clever, witty and very funny.
