    I’ve tried watching Lowdown twice now, and I still for the life of me cannot figure out how it is supposed to be funny. Every aspect of comedy (characters, situations, dialogue, jokes) has been stripped out of it. How did we end up in the situation where this show is considered so funny it deserves an award?

    Richly deserved.
