Newlyweds Rio and Mike make the decision to move from New York to rural Nebraska. After dropping everything to make the move, they soon realise that the simpler life isn’t as easy as they planned.

Married couple Rio (Lake Bell, who also created the show) and Mike (Dax Shepard) leave the hustle and bustle of the big city behind for farm life. But it’s not what they expected!

Their inherited farm is nothing like the photo – it’s run down, and as Mike says, “This will be a fun challenge”, they fall through the floor into the basement. And that’s just the start. Nothing will prepare you for the trouble they get themselves into.

The humour is dry. The script is smart. The six episodes rush by and you’ll be shouting, “More! Give me more!” And the cast has a couple of gems beside Dax and Lake. Pam Grier is her usual in-your-face loud as the local storekeeper and town sheriff, while Ed Begley Jr plays hilariously senile neighbour Rudy.
