Not So Political Comedy

A show that I recently caught up on and finished, unexpectedly, was The Mayor. It was a short little show got canceled after 13 episodes. It had highlights here and there, but it was … cringy. There were many times that I paused the show, and walked away. For a while actually. If you are looking for a political commentary with some comedy highlights, this is probably not for you. Earlier on there were plenty of bazingas concerning current events, but they fall flat after that. All of the characters, in my opinion, were good but weren’t used to their potential. Also, when a protagonist makes the same, exact mistake over and over again, the conflicts become boring really fast. If the protagonist made new mistakes, I would probably understand the show not being canceled. To me, there was no growth of characters to make them rememberable. Any lessons to be learned were immediately lost, which was especially noticed by someone who binge-watches shows often instead of keeping up to date. It was just too much of a drag to even try to keep up to date. I honestly can’t say that I was surprised by the canceling of this show. I would say give this show a change, but I would not be surprised if you stop somewhere in the middle.
