I'm late coming to this (the recently release 3rd season is apparently its last) but I've watched the pilot and it's pretty good. It's funny, which is always good for a comedy. Also, the pilot plus at least the subsequent episode are directed by David Gordon Green. I just checked - he directed 6 eps total. It's an Amazon Prime exclusive. Trailer here:

Some people have a fear of snakes. That was a somewhat rational fear. And you could do something about it at least. Stay away from long grass and nature documentaries. Easy. Others have a fear of heights. That was manageable too. Avoid tall ladders. But how do you cope when your fear is something you can’t avoid? That you have no hope of staying away from? Being afraid of the sky, where are you going to go?

I enjoyed it--in a kind of light, frothy, doesn't-amount-to-much way.  I have zero nostalgia for the 80s, so that aspect was lost on me.   Perfectly pleasant, though.
