Hello, my name's Mia and I am big lover of comedy movies I have to admit, this tv series has several great moments. If you have seen other movies from this director then you will know the story behind this tv series. I agree that this tv series just isn't for everyone. Go for it, relax, play the tv series and let it move your mind. I don't really know enough about the original story behind screening. Basically the same concept as similar movies, but in reality, I'm Sorry is completely different. this director did excellent job, just as always. If you are either straight, gay, black, white or any other, you will like it as much as I do, I'm sure. Althought not as good as the book, still great as tv series.
