DAN GOODSELL certified reviewer June 03, 2018
I really enjoyed the show. The show deals with the serious issue of homelessness but comes at it from a comedic direction. So you are not hit over the head with the message but the message is also not diminshed by the comedic approach. The direction is interesting and engaging.

While I respect wanting to shine a light on what a serious problem homelessness is, this show mishandled the message it tried to impart. It wants to be ridiculous fun, it wants to be meaningful, but was ultimately neither.... full review

So clever and insightful - a great look into the homeless issue in our country, tied with the social media issue in our country. Very funny, yet also touching. ... full review

New Kid on the Block definitely needs to be filmed as a three camera sit com. The premise is genius, funny, touching, and sad. Plenty of stories to make a season!... full review

A poignant comedy about the forgotten people we see every day, and look past. Also a biting satire about the nature of sudden internet fame, and its ultimate lack of value. ... full review
