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:
