After months of teases and head-ups, FUBAR finally arrived on Netflix. The action comedy is already starting to pick up traction on the streaming giant. In three days, only the show has taken the first spot on the top 10 list, leaving the much-loved XO, Kitty behind. It’s no surprise, considering fans have waited long for this legendary actor’s return to the screen, since he has been rarely seen on stage in his post-Governator days.

You may be wondering now how the actor is celebrating this success. And if you know him well, you can expect something far more twisted and intriguing, as usual.

On the aggregate website Rotton Tomatoes, the comedy drama has received only 51% rating on tomatometer and 71% on audience score.
