Huge In France - watch with subtitles
If you're looking for an empty comedy that's the same as all others, move along, this will go way above your head. I'm a French native who has lived in the US for over 30 years. So I can see both sides. This show is really funny. Not laugh out loud funny, but much more subtle and basically making fun of how politically correct we've become as a society in the US. France is still a very face value country, where you just live and enjoy living. This is not a knock on the US, I love living here, but in some respect, we've gone too far. You literally can't say anything without being afraid of offending someone. This show is all about exactly that. The contrast between different cultures. It pokes fun at both, and does not take itself too seriously. I almost never write reviews. But I wanted this show to be given it's fair shake. And yes, I do like Gad. Too better get this show, I recommend you watch the Gad special on Netflix beforehand, and you'll appreciate this show even more. It's an insight into American culture as viewed from the outside. Netflix, awesome job coming up with totally different shows versus a rinse and repeat formula that we've seen time and time again. Regarding Gad speaking in the third person, it's simply Gad poking fun at himself, nothing more. He's acting as Gad. Love the Seinfeld cameo as well.
