It's great. Really funny/has an entertaining personality to it - and visually sweeping. Although at times it feels Sorrentino is coming up with scenes on an individual basis instead of having one large, cohesive vision. If it was released as a mini-series with three 47 minute segments, it would've played just fine. Whether that counts as a criticism or not.
