It stars Matt Le Blanc portraying a satirical version of himself.He had previously collaborated with Crane in the series Friends, which Crane co-created.The Nigerian dating scams target the lonely and vulnerable.
The Nigerian dating scams are often not easy to detect as the scammers are often highly educated, have exceptional patience and they do their homework! And she may be into her career, but what she's really...The show is about a British husband-and-wife comedy writing team who travel to Hollywood to remake their successful British TV series, with unexpected results.Beverly was originally to be portrayed by Claire Forlani, but she left the cast in April 2010 when the series was in pre-production. Although the majority of the show was set in Los Angeles, it was mainly filmed in the UK, including the 103-room mansion Updown Court that Sean and Beverly Lincoln briefly stayed in. USA Today said of the show "As smartly written as it is played, Episodes offers the comic pleasures, not just of clashing cultures, but of contrasting comic styles.On one side you have Le Blanc, who handles the big laughs and the broader humor, and does it so well, it serves as a reminder that he was under-appreciated during his years on Friends." Ed Bark of Uncle Barky praised the season saying it was "a thoroughly entertaining romp, with the television industry as a combination Tilt-A-Whirl/merry-go-round." On the Firewall & Iceberg podcast Alan Sepinwall and Dan Fienberg commented on the second season, saying that the "self-congratulatory, obvious" show that is "oddly tone-deaf about the business that it was trying to satirize" is "not about anything" and "as a result is better for it", but is still "groaningly unfunny". Club gave the season a "C " grade and a mixed review, writing: "It's turned out to be a fairly tired satire of Hollywood, one that's stayed yoked to its dubious premise." Episode Two received 1.53 million viewers (7.4%) – and by Episode Four, viewing numbers were down to 1.09 million (5.3%).
The easy thing to do would be to take potshots at this film; throw out things like ' Fresh Prince', 'getting jiggy with it', and even throw around the whole 'black dude making a white dude cool' angle; but that's too easy isn't it? Of course you won't see it up for an Oscar (what a tired joke that is); nor does it contain Quientin Tarantion-esquire dialogue or groundbreaking visuals. And Kevin James steals nearly every scene he's in.
