From R. Lackie of The Signal:
- Dan For Mayor, â€œA Rink by Any Other Nameâ€ and â€œThe Trash Compactâ€ (2.01/2.02)
Though Dan For Mayor is still about as funny as it was last year (which is, sad to say, not very much), itâ€™s improved very much in another sense: the show is finally as charming as its lead actor. Fred Ewanuick was always winning as Dan, even when the writing made him a purposeless doofus, but we never had a significant reason to root for him. While running for mayor, he never really wanted it, and was completely unqualified, so his journey was not something I wanted to watch. His lack of self awareness also bugged, because he doesnâ€™t work as a Michael Scott-type character. Read more.
