Since I don’t do Netfilx, I figure I do a recommendation of my own from Amazon:
What if I told you that Jean-Claude Van Damme – yes, THAT Jean-Claude Van Damme – was, in fact, a secret agent? That his entire film career was built solely as a front for his black ops? Would you believe me? No? Well then that’s egg on your face because that’s what this show is about.
It is a huge parody of himself, the whole genre he worked on and has absolutely zero social value. In other words, it is a totally silly and enjoyable show to watch knowing that you will get a knowingly “washed out” actor playing a washed out actor who is really some washed out secret agent trying to recapture his former awesomeness. Even the constant references to Time Cop do not get old and you get to know there is some sort of “feud” between fans of that movie and fans of Looper.
Oh, I almost forgot: Plenty of pokes to many current and past affairs. The movie he is making and that serves as cover for his black ops is based on Mark Twain’s Adventures of Huckleberry Finn but politically correct. So we have the black character N-Word Jim who gets wrote out of the movie because “N-word” is offensive. Not the word “nigger” mind you, but the expression N-word on itself is racially offensive. The new actor is Asian and just called Jim.
There are many other small pokes at different things and people, but the number one target of the general mocking is Jean Claude Van Damne himself. So, if you feel like watching something absolutely silly, with no redeeming value and no teaching moments, Jean-Claude Van Johnson is the one you need.
PS: Yes, the splits are there but it is the first thing it gets mocked.
