The Pentaverate is probably best saved for a very specific crowd: people who grew up quoting So I Married an Axe Murderer. In fact, it’s essentially one long Easter Egg for arguably the most quotable scene of that movie, which is a pretty thin premise on which to base a series. Save for Jeremy Irons’ ever-changing opening monologue, which is consistently hilarious, the other humorous bits fade away as the series progresses. It simply can’t sustain the initial nostalgic charm for all six episodes. It’s not a total waste of time, but it’s never as funny as the scene on which it’s based either.
