What's wrong with this review?

Let us know why you think this review is inappropriate.

To just say this show is awesome does not begin to cover it.
Do not expect a show about heroes in the way that we are used to. They are misfits, rejects, anty-heroes that do not even like themselves. They fight everyday problems just like everybody else. What makes them special is that they fight! Their stories are wonderfully told. There is so much attention to detail in those stories. They unfold slowly and you are with them every step of the way. The actors are great and Diane Guerrero is sublime. They ARE the characters that they are portraying. They are perfect in their imperfection.

This show is a crazy mix of therapy sessions at a seriously freaked out psych facility and everybody's favorite comedy. It finds the perfect balance of those two in every damn episode. You cannot help but root for them. It makes you laugh, it makes you cry, it makes you shake your head and wonder what you have gotten yourself into. But it is freaking awesome!
