Storyline

Jeff, aka Mr. Pickles, is an icon of children's television, a beacon of kindness and wisdom to America's impressionable young minds and the parents who grew up with him - who also anchors a multimillion-dollar branding empire. But when this beloved personality's family - wife, two sons, sister and father - begins to implode, Jeff finds no fairy tale or fable or puppet will guide him through the crisis, which advances faster than his means to cope. The result: a kind man in a cruel world faces a slow leak of sanity as hilarious as it is heartbreaking. Written by Showtime

Heartbreaking but AMAZING
9 September 2018 | by sammiesoonjSee all my reviews

Jim's portrayal of Mr. Pickles is wonderful. He is so pure and loving, but is going through so much pain. Witnessing the breaks in that demeanor is very real and touching. Seeing someone who strives to be a role model for kids react in such a human way. A reaction that is so opposite of the on screen Mr. Pickles. I cannot wait for more episodes. I don't believe I've ever wanted to write a review for a tv show as badly as I did for this one.

Honestly, I feel as though I need this show. Strange how a piece of entertainment can feel therapeutic. I very much look forward to his continued development. Most people in his situation would crumble. I wonder what roads he will choose!
