I Think You Should Leave with Tim Robinson Season 1 Review
April 30, 2019 at 4:31am
This is a Netflix Original Series that provides a series of comedic sketches. They’re short in length, making this a rather easy binge. They’re aimed at providing laughs, and for the most part they’re generally decent. I didn’t find anything too hilariously ground breaking, but you’ll get some value out of viewing it. Just don’t expect anything too cutting edge. Some of the scenes stand out more than others, but it’s generally a meld after viewing everything here.
Tim Robinson takes point here as he’s front and center in the various sketches playing some sort of part. He can be rather funny, yet at others times perhaps be more of an annoyance in what’s going. There was some fun during the whole hot dog costume situation, during an interview and also the game show attempt. Other episodes had some more strange setups, I didn’t care for the social media posting segment, or the one at the party despite it having brief moments of laughs.
There was a church scene that I wasn’t blown away by and a number of other scenes that could have been better in their delivery. I just generally felt that they could have done more with the extra talent involved here.
You get to see the likes of Will Forte, Steven Yeun and Andy Samberg. Some are used to their full potential, other guests don’t have the most exciting of situations. The funeral one was particularly weak despite the thrills of a special guest there. I’m not trying to be too negative here, it had some solid moments of comedy.
I just didn’t find it to be anything too engaging and with the limited episode numbers in combination with short run times it goes by quickly. You’ll most likely watch it and then move on with little remembrance of what happened. When I reflect on comedy sketches, I tend to remember some very fondly and I’m not sure any of these will really stick in terms of longevity.
I Think You Should Leave with Tim Robinson Season 1 brings some laughs and a number of solid sketches to enjoy. I certainly did laugh a number of times, but not all of these sketches were winners and came across as background noise. Robinson never held back which was great, but at the same time perhaps not so.
I think some of these would have benefitted from having someone else take over the lead on the sketches and having him be there more for support. I found him funny for sure, just a thought on the perspective of bringing the laughs from less of a lead at times would have suited some of these sketches better. There’s a good variety here and things go by fairly quick. Some of the sketches are longer than others, but they don’t really linger unless that’s part of the laugh.
There was an interview door issue and that one needed to delay to really deliver, or well nail home the point on it. Some of these were strange setups, others provided some neat commentary on regular things. The more wild some of them were, the more funny they became. I’m sure the initial baby contest will be a hit, Sam Richardson was amazing in that.
