A promising start. I didn’t know exactly what to expect from this show. Maybe I was thinking of something more directed to kids since the main character does that as a living. However, this show is not for kids at all. It actually deals with some adult problems, drugs, sex, grief, sadness and more. It is the story of a man who lived his life creating this false sense of happiness in his show, and I think he begins to understand that. After losing his son in an accident, he starts seeing his show as an opportunity to teach kids something more than just the childish entertainment that he was accustomed to. But, I don’t even think that is the main purpose of this series. It is too early to say anything about it, but Kidding deals with characters and their different approaches to the grieving process (at least it is was what I got from the first two episodes). Nevertheless, the point of most tv series is to entertain, I think Kidding managed to do that so far. I will continue watching it as the characters are compelling enough and the plot seems to be moving somewhere, which cannot be said of some other shows.
