    Fred Armisen and Maya Rudolph
    June and Oscar live a comfortable but very predictable wedded life when suddenly they find themselves in a completely unexpected situation, raising questions about love and marriage.

    I've watched the first 3 and it's pretty good. Subtle Armisen style like Portlandia with Rudolph doing her thing.
    A nice twist on what heaven and/or life after death is
    and the ties and twists that go along with it - whether you want it or them or not!

    Am about to watch this as a fan of those two and as it was created by a couple of Parks & Rec writers. Didn't exactly know that full premise, as wasn't revealed by Fred and Maya on recent promo interviews, so you might want to spoiler this ...

    They've been very specific about not revealing the premise until you watch it - I can kind of see why (there is a potential comparison to another show). But I think it really helps to not know what's coming.

    But I really liked it - it's from one of the same people who did Master of None, so there are some similarities with that tonewise. Particularly with episode six which is stand-out excellent - worth watching for that at least.

    Binged it in one weekend - and it's left me wanting more. I think they've barely scratched the surface with the premise, so I hope it's coming back.

    Six is good but a standalone oddity right up until to the end.
    I liked it overall but felt they kind of got hung up on the second place where not much happened for the story. They're clearly going for more with the ending and I'd look forward to see what they discovered and how it pans out..
