If You Liked This, You Might Like...
This was easily the best comedy of 2014. The cast was really balanced, and while everyone is an idiot, they're all idiots in different ways. You end up with a cast where everyone can act as a foil to everyone else, and everyone gets time in the spotlight. It's well written, charming, and only one character isn't in the running for best character (although everyone knows it's really Seo).
