In a true testament to the program’s serialized nature, Kroll Show‘s characters change as the storylines progress (which is not to say that they all learn or grow). Bryan La Croix, the Canadian teen star who stars on “Wheels, Ontario,” has moved on to more “mature” music with a pop song about not wanting to go to bed early. Bobby Bottleservice, of “Gigolo House/Horse,” realizes that it might be time to settle down. Liz (Jenny Slate) from “PubLIZity” is now a mother, while other Liz (Nick Kroll) has a new surprise of her own, which is very silly but played so dramatically that I won’t dare spoil it here. Even the tuna pranksters George St. Geegland and Gil Gaizon from “Oh, Hello” are literally on the move for much of their appearances.
It isn’t often that you see characters develop and evolve within a sketch comedy show, but that’s what sets Kroll Show apart, and what has always made it such an engaging watch. In this final season of Kroll Show, it’s clear that Kroll is nudging the characters toward the end of their respective storylines, but the series is even funnier because of it.
