Idiotsitter: Season 1
March 20, 2016 12:29 PM - Season 1 (Full Season) - Subscribe

When wild child Gene (Workaholics' Jillian Bell) is put under house arrest in her family's mansion, her parents hire buttoned-up nanny Billie (Charlotte Newhouse) to look after her. Trapped in each other’s company, the two strike up an unlikely friendship and cause all sorts of trouble. It's an odd-couple story that reaches new depths of depravity.

Thoroughly enjoyed. Jillian Bell and Charlotte Newhouse are insanely funny individuals and, despite a strange premise, put together an amazing show. And Stephen Root continues to be a goddamn National Treasure.

Honestly this show is funnier than the past season or two of workaholics despite being somewhat conceptually similar with the setup of the jokes. Jillian is basically Adam Demamp, and Charlotte is Anders, but if anything played even more "straight".

I will not be at all surprised if the two series' exist in the same universe and crossover at some point.

I absolutely loved this show. IMO it was just as funny as Broad City. Billie started out normal (as she appeared to us) but she is just as weird and messed up as Gene. I hope they don't change anything too much for the next season.

We usually don't watch the Wednesday and Thursday comedies until Friday, so there's quite a few to choose from. Hands down my husband will pick Idiotsitter and Broad City before anything else. Just some anecdotal evidence that men will watch women and think they are funny.
