Mel and Sue just don't seem to be acting.

Most of the guest actors fail to transcend their stock characters, which means being stuck for 20 or so minutes with a sketch-comedy conceit that refuses to deepen into anything more layered or nuanced.

It's amusing alone to see [Giedroyc and Perkins] here as neurotic daytime killers, even if their comic scenarios here can be big misses or big hits.

They may play killers, but the kind who keep the actors well within the brand they've built over their 32-year friendship and professional partnership.

The pieces are there for a really fun dark comedy. But things just may need time to come together.

The series isn't great, but it's just fine. It coasts entirely on the charm of these two, and whether or not you are watching specifically for them.
