"The Awakening of Motti Wolkenbruch"…has anyone seen it?

If you came across it in Netflix or somewhere else, and watched it, did you also get inherently stereotypical vibes that crossed lines?

I’m not further than 10 minutes in and already find it to be how non-Jewish screenwriters imagine the Orthodox world works…including snide references to things like stereotypes about all guys being nerdy(main character) or fat (his father and other male characters), crazy mothers, ugly women, having money (his family works in insurance and in one of the earlier scenes his shidduch lists off his qualities including working in insurance and selling only to Jews).

Am I the only one that found it really tasteless attempt at what secular Jews already do tastelessly when portraying Judaism?
