Yeah it’s not that bad. I haven’t finished the season but I think they should have just gone completely balls deep on making it ludicrous.I didn't hate it that much and thought it had some funny moments, but ultimately was a massive waste of potential. Like you said, the premise was fertile ground for comedy, but it was just executed really poorly. I'm not sure how many episodes we got through, but won't bother going back to it.
It seemed to hold itself back and go “safe” with some shitty drama - like, I couldn’t give a crap about his daughter’s whole plot line.
It’s at its best when it’s stupidly absurd, like at times during that war games ep.
They needed to just go all in on that crap imo.
