    B99 is so slight & mild (in a bad way) and wastes the talents of its very talented but totally misused cast. I can't help feeling that it would be so much funnier with Bill Hader instead of Andy Samberg (who is certainly funny in other things) & different writers and showrunners. A decent concept, but just zzzzzzzzzz can't wait for the next phone commercial to come on.
