See it if An actor impersonating a few gay characters all attending a bday party in LA sounds good to you. Lots of stereotypes not much substance.

Don't see it if If you did not like” bright colors and bold patterns “. This show is even worse ( I know, unbelievable but true ). Very poorly written.
