by | January 29, 2015 | 138 Comments
This show is pretty ridiculous, but it’s also fun, especially when our hero’s alter ego starts actively messing with his life. Some would call it “fixing” his life, but good luck convincing an uptight control-freak that adding complications is a good thing. But even the bossypants with a stick up his butt has his moments—they... More »
