I don't get how it ran for so long.
I've been binge watching it for 3 seasons, and I've laughed maybe 5 times. I challenged myself.
I get the awkward humor and what not, it's just a terrible show. It's like a terrible sitcom, but without the jokes.

I don't get the cult following. The boss is well intentioned but completely incapable of recognizing societal norms? So the boss is a retard, but it's funny because he's a retard and it's supposed to be relatable? It's not relatable. No one has ever had a boss that dumb. We've all had a bad boss, but this went beyond satire and into just nonsense. It's past absurdist humor, it's just absurd and dry.
