Watched Troop Zero on Prime...

and could barely finish. I expected much more since it featured Alison Janney, Viola Davis and Jim Gaffigan. I guess I was expecting a sort of Bad News Bears but with girl scouts.

And then it hit me.

Maybe it's meant to be viewed by kids ages 10 to 13? My husband is always reminding me we aren't the target audience for much these days. Maybe it would be seen as something funny or poignant to an 11 year old. It's rated PG13 and has some good underlying messages woven in but the actual story is not much of anything.

Anyone see it?

1. Yes, and I had the same reaction as you.

There's not much "there" there, but, as you say, I'm not the target audience. However, anything with Alison Janney or Viola Davis in it is worth checking out, so I don't count the time viewing it as wasted.

2. It was sweet but kind of lame.

Hope it's not part of a series.

3. I bailed about 1/3 of the way in. Maybe it is for kids, I was expecting some

fun adult humor, too.

Watch Space Force on Netflix! Subtle and hilarious!

4. Saw it ...

and I agree. IMO Netflix needs to step-up their game a bit. Quality over quantity.
