Too bad, this had a chance to be a really thoughtful yet amusing show. But a foundation donor would not be talked to by an employee in this manner, the employee would be fired within minutes, in fact would not talk this way to begin with. And the lead would have a chief-of-staff or top advisor so that there would be not even a single PR faux pas. Regrettable, not watchable.
If Elon Musk and Space X has taught us anything, underlings who criticize the behaviour of billionaires don't get to keep their jobs. While I appreciate the feel good comedy attempt, many of the jokes simply don't land and the idea of a poor little rich girl in these times is simply out of touch.
With all of the talent and money in Hollywood, all I can think as I watch this is how? Who blackmailed Maya Rudolph to do this? I've Seen this house on YouTube, it's a known money pit yet it outshines everything else happening on screen right down to the ridiculous yard statue and weird foyer flowers. Maybe the homeowner had this thrown together as a covert real estate feature. This move is that bad and I was so excited when I saw the promos.
I love Maya Rudolph. Now you know why I watched this show. But the brains behind this rubbish should never be given responsibility for any other television show, EVER. The timing of the first episode is SO formulaic and SO over the top that I was embarrassed to be a viewer. Running at 30 minutes, the first episode felt like an hour (a very painful hour). The logic of Maya's character is all over the map. Her character would NEVER allow someone like the charity-head to dictate to her, NEVER EVER. It's mind-boggling. Clearly, television CAN BE (and often is) BETTER, much better.
Somewhere along the way someone decided that comedy is something we should nod sagely at. Laughing's probably punching down.Life's too short for painful rubbish like this.Next.
It wasn't even entertaining. I love Maya but this was a total disappointment. Maybe it's the times we live in right but watching over indulgent ridiculous people living their 'best' lives at the expense of others is repulsive. It wasn't funny. It didn't come around. It tried but failed.
Not sure who wrote this trash, but they should never be allowed to write anything ever again. The acting is horrible, they should stick to stand up. This show should be cancelled immediately.
Rudolph is a cartoon caricature of a billionaire. I'm guessing kids might find it amusing when Rudolph brushes her teeth her dogs also get their teeth brushed by women in French maids outfits but I do not. Or that her yacht has 3 pools and the smallest pool is so embarrassing that it'll only be used by those minty fresh poodles. And pretty sure billionaires don't drink champagne day and night. That kind of out-of-touch rich worked in Overboard and Arthur but doesn't work here. Here, it's just stupid and boring. Been there, done that.Also,
-Zero chemistry between Rudolph and Scott.-Didn't buy either of them as billionaires. It's like they're faking being rich. I keep waiting for Rudolph to wake up from a dream and they really live in a 1-bedroom apartment in Pasadena.-Tough boss Sophie is over-acted and one-dimensional.-A gay sidekick? Shallow BFFs? How original.
...the creators definitely looted Apple's money.The entire concept relies on the protagonist being more immature than a 10 year old and that's a really uncreative, dated and cliched approach to base the jokes on.
The days of making billionaires protagonists or hero's are long gone. And a cheap richoganda series is tacky and tone deaf to the world as it is and the quickly growing inequalities. Brought about mostly by, you guessed it, billionaires.
Good job, Apple. This is a bland, superficial series that couldn't reel me in. Each episode was a feeble attempt to draw out joy from a viewer. A lead character so messed up I came close to not watching the 3rd episode.
Please, don't watch this. Maya Rudolph is an excellent comedic actress (and likely beyond), but she has sold out. Her talent is wasted on this ghastliness.Loot is a vom-inducing exploration of the life of the 'super-rich' from the point of view of a poor 'run-of-the-mill-man'. Who commissioned this?Stultifying, and bad for the soul.Don't watch. Just don't do it.
