Dull staging, Ted talk format, Disappointing, Banal, tired jokes

See it if you are comfortable w someone arguing that his orthodoxy is an appealing lifestyle, even with its many restrictions, especially for women.

Don't see it if you are 2020 woke. To me, what Blaker sells as lovable, laughable quirkiness is off-putting and misogynistic. By the end, I was upset.

Quirky, Overrated, Fluffy, Clever, Funny

See it if If you like a new type of writing that reflects on different religions. Has some funny moments and at times is good.

Don't see it if Traditional religious groups may have a problem with the show. Some humor better than others.
