Budding Prospects: Season 1 (2017)

While we'd like to think that maybe that meandering feel is the point, instead it just felt disjointed.

It's a stoner comedy without the comedy, which just leaves us with three mild, irritating guys without much ambition attempting to do something that is clearly a bad idea.

Terry Zwigoff's foray into TV is exactly what you'd expect from the man who gave us Bad Santa and Ghost World: offbeat, misanthropic, occasionally crude and often wonderfully deadpan.
