Audience Reviews for Man vs. Bee: Season 1
14h agoIt's possible to see Man vs Bee as yet another not-very-funny series by Atkinson, who seems to be more of a dedicated trooper than a brilliant comedian. But there is something deeper here. The deeply furrowed face and dire social predicament of the protagonist rings true with people who have passed their sixtieth birthday and find they are without home and family, no one rings them on the phone and they have to work in jobs that are below their intelligence. It seems that instead of taking it easy and playing with the grandkids, people are starting a second mindblowingly boring career as guards, cleaners, housesitters... sign of the times or just a good premise for a mediocre plot?
1d agoWell Trevor just lacked any depth. We just know he has a family, he's divorced and doesn't have a home. The comedy was there but its not funny because we don't know why Trevor acts the way he acts. He's like Mr Bean but with a lot less depth. Honestly it should have just been Mr Bean vs Bee. Thats how it was written but instead they created a new character without proper insight to who he is.
2d agoHysterically funny! Surprised that both the critics & audience gave it such a low score. Rowan Atkinson brings his A Game, and it's the best work he's done since Mr. Bean.
2d agoNothing changed with mr Bean, same old paroy of a life, every joke is too predictable, Rowan Atkinson is a hell of an actor but is too demential.
3d agoThe humour was the same as in every movie and show with Rowan Atkinson, but the implementation was not good. Everything except Atkinson himself felt like a CGI animation, and the bee wasn't anymore a necessary motive for the plot after the first episode.
3d agoComplete waste of time. Useless. No plot. Not funny. Nothing.
4d agoThe beginning and ending were a bit underwhelming but all the middle stuff just proves that Rowan Atkinson is still one of the greatest.
5d agoThere are only two good things about this series: Rowan Atkinson's acting and the decoration of the house.
5d agoI've grown up as many others watching Mr. Bean, and I always admired the physical comedy that Rowan Atkinsons threw at us, while this type of comedy gets a bad reputation of being basic or easy "digestible", it takes a huge amount of talent to make people laugh without a single word coming out of your mouth and to this day if done right it continues to take laughs out of me. So this is why I decided to give this very small series a go, first it has the length of a movie if you sum up the episodes, it's an interesting approach having 10 minute episodes I didn't see this approach before on a linear storyline but somehow it makes it not seem so long. The plot is very basic, a man who is tasked with house sitting a big mansion for a rich couple, makes a complete mess while fixating on a random and stubborn bee refuses to leave him at peace. It's entertaining, not at all at a Mr. Bean level if that's your expectation but it managed to make me laugh here an there. For the most part it's just focusing on Rowan trying to get the bee and it ends with a slightly farfetched yet entertaining twist - it's one of those TV shows made to just sit back and relax on a Sunday afternoon. I have to say I am a bit skeptical as to why they seem to be planning for a second season, usually if it was a 1 season show it would be marked as mini-series but on IMDB the date indicates there's a possibility for a future installment although I don't see how or why.
5d agoIt's literally reminded in Tom and jerry , it was fast , funny and was Better than most of series this days
