For originality and pure entertainment value 4 ½ stars.
There is some serious misguided bullshit here. I really liked it, but this is some depressing stuff. But unlike me, you should all probably read it before watching it … haha.

Offbeat and irreverent, it unfolds in a way you won't be able to predict, a gift in an industry that's propelled by far too much predictability.
