What do you think? Do you like the Avenue 5 TV series on HBO? Should it be cancelled or renewed for a second season?
*2/13/20 update: HBO has renewed the Avenue 5 TV show for a second season.
Maybe because I never watched Veep, I couldn’t get into a show where everyone was a moron. I tried to think of it as a prequel to Idiocracy. It’s a shame because I actually like many of the actors on the show. The finale was finally funny.
I found it very entertaining and I think anyone that liked VEEP would enjoy this. Of course I’m not in the demo range, but I hope it continues.
