I still don't think chair pants were given a fair chants.

🚨 Warning: Jury Duty spoilers ahead! 🚨

If you haven’t seen Jury Duty yet, here’s a quick rundown of the premise: a group of actors portraying jurors evaluate a made-up trial while being captured by cameras…

Only, there’s a catch — one juror, Ronald Gladden, is a non-actor who is aware he’s being filmed but has no idea that he’s surrounded by performers and semi-scripted situations.

The show is hands down one of the funniest releases in years. James Marsden plays a fictionalized, hilarious version of himself, and other actors like Mekki Leeper and Edy Modica are also amazing in the series. Another enjoyable element is how Ronald proves himself to be a likable contributor as he remains kind, even-keeled, and supportive toward his fellow jurors, no matter how crazy things get.
