I was not impressed with this one. I tried to like it but it was a little over done. They seemed to be trying to hard. It might make it but I have my doubts.

It wasn't bad. It was better than SNL at least.

I did like that the "uptight captain" remained stern and still put a few jokes in (manscaping, humiliation, etc.).

I'm worried that Terry Crews will be held back way too much in this series when he should be set free to be himself. He's great at physical comedy, and I didn't see that in the first episode. Felt like he had a leash on him the whole time.
