Zombie skateboarders, Thai food and more in Real Estate's 'Crime' video

15 April 2014 2:49 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Some parodies work because they are just the slightest exaggeration with how it seems to work in real life. Such is the case with Real Estate’s “Crime” video, which debuted on Funny or Die. Playing fictionalized director Tom Scharpling  (or “auteur,” as he prefers to be known), Comedy Central’s Andy Daly explains that he is broke and, therefore, he’s sold the creative direction of the video to three different people and, therefore, they determine the script. Their collective mandate is to have a video that features undead sports enthusiasts, use of the various ceramic figurines made by one of the new video owners, and an overall theme that supports core values of the good old days.  To make a little more dough, Scharpling received $200 from the local Thai restaurant and some money from the Westboro Baptist Church. Additionally, he needs to shoehorn in a celebrity appearance (by »

The Stealthy Genius of Andy Daly's New Comedy Central Series 'Review'

21 March 2014 10:32 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

There's no gap between Comedy Central's new series "Review" and the show-within-a-show on which it's focused, "Review with Forrest MacNeil." Everything that Forrest MacNeil, played by Andy Daly ("Eastbound & Down," "Delocated"), is shown doing is part of the fictional series he's hosting, one in which he reviews life experiences at the request of his viewers. "Life... it's literally all we have. But is it any good?" he thunders in the introduction, before taking on and then rating things like "stealing," "prom" and "eating 15 pancakes" on a five-star scale. That the show-within-a-show is all we see is part of the stealthy genius of "Review," which aired its third, funniest and darkest episode last night. "Review" takes place in sketch-like shorter chunks, but Forrest doesn't go unscathed by his experiences. A request that he review "addiction" in the first episode leads him to reluctantly dabble in cocaine use ("Some people simply »

A review of the funniest 'Review' yet

20 March 2014 7:30 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A few weeks ago, I sang the praises of Comedy Central's "Review," starring Andy Daly as an amiable but sheltered Wasp who has different life experiences at the request of his viewers. In particular, I singled out tonight's episode as an early frontrunner for funniest half-hour of 2014, and thus wanted to do a second post for people who had now seen it. A few thoughts coming up just as soon as this post could be my penicillin... On the one hand, the title of "Pancakes, Divorce, Pancakes" gives away some of the better jokes of the episode. On the other, Daly's initial reaction to each assignment is so perfect and funny that the lack of surprise ultimately didn't matter. We go from his understandable disgust and dismay at having to eat what he describes as "an upsetting number of pancakes" (complete with encouragement from both the waitress and his producer, »

Seitz on Comedy Central’s Review: Like Jackass in Pleats

20 March 2014 4:06 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

It's hard to know quite what to make of Review, and that's part of its fascination. Adapted by Eastbound & Down's Andy Daly from the similarly slippery Australian series Review with Myles Barlow, it's one of those shows you have to take figuratively, not literally. Its hero is a critic named Forrest MacNeil (Daly), who reviews experiences and sensations rather than books, films, music, and the like. Viewers of Forrest's TV show write in to suggest new subjects, and he promptly leaves the soundstage and embarks upon a mission to learn what it feels like to be a racist or an armed robber, or to make a sex tape, or to sleep with a celebrity.That might sound like the description of a series that's willing to do anything for a laugh, and Review does hover on the edge of shamelessness at all times, as if creating a more buttoned-down, scripted »

'Broad City' Gets Paid to a Drake Track

19 March 2014 7:10 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Remember Hype Williams' crazy, fisheye-lensed music video for Missy Elliott's "The Rain (Supa Dupa Fly)"? Broad City's Ilana Glazer and Abbi Jacobson do, and they've gleefully paid homage in the opening of their latest episode. Depositing a check for "eight f**king thousand dollars," Glazer and Jacobson strut into their local bank branch as Drake's "Started From the Bottom" plays, instantly turning the lobby into a slo-mo bumpin' and grindin' party. (The teller freaking the window is a nice touch.) The best part? Glazer is done up »

Up for 'Review': See a Clip From Comedy Central's Wild New Show

7 March 2014 7:05 AM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

"I'm a reviewer, but I don't review food, books or movies," says Forest MacNeil. "I review life itself!" MacNeil is the creation of comedian Andy Daly and the main character of Comedy Central's latest show Review (which premiered last night at 10 p.m. Est), an everyman who gives star ratings to first-person experiences involving eating pancakes, racism and anything else his TV audience throws at him. Stealing, for example, only gets two stars; cocaine gets "a million stars!"

Review: Comedy Central's 'Review with Forrest MacNeil'

6 March 2014 9:34 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Sketch comedy shows don't usually have story arcs, even when they feature recurring characters. The Target Lady on "SNL" didn't go on a complex character journey over multiple seasons. Jordan Peele's character in the "Key & Peele" soul food sketch didn't reappear a few episodes later having turned cannibal after enjoying a human foot with his cellar door and stork ankles. Comedy Central's new series "Review with Forrest MacNeil" (it premieres tonight at 10, and the first episode is already online) is sketch-y in structure, but following the same main character each time: Andy Daly's chipper title character, a "reviewer of life" who will undergo any experience his viewers request — say, going to the prom, or becoming a thief — and then assign a rating to it on a five-star scale. As a series of isolated vignettes about a spectacularly dull, whitebread guy being a surrogate for his audience's fantasies, »

Review With Forrest MacNeil Review: Andy Daly’s Intriguing New Series Takes Criticism to the Extreme

6 March 2014 8:27 AM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

When watching Andy Daly's (Eastbound & Down) new dark Comedy Central series Review, with Forrest MacNeil, based on the Australian mockumentary series Review, with Myles Barlow, viewers must be struck by how this isn't an actual reality show.  Daly's out of touch, nerdy Forrest is the presenter of a show where he is a "life reviewer," because "life: it's literally all we have. But the question is, is it any good?"  Forrest's kind of critical review is for the experience of life itself.  The fake show's viewers send in videos, emails and texts asking Forrest to review things like addiction, going to a high school prom, being a racist, hunting, and more.  Nothing is too big or too trivial for Forrest, but it soon begins to take its toll.  Hit the jump for more. It's clear in Review's first episode that the show's humor skews dark.  Forrest's inaugural review is of stealing, »

TV Review: Comedy Central’s ‘Review’

5 March 2014 9:30 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Aside from offering a field day in terms of puns – how does one review a show titled “Review?” – Comedy Central’s latest pre-“Daily Show” series nibbles around the edges of something really interesting, but doesn’t quite get there. Ostensibly about a critic who reviews “life itself,” the semi-serialized program stars Andy Daly as Forrest MacNeil, a TV personality who agrees to engage in any activity suggested by viewers, then “review” it on a 1-to-5-star scale. Alas, the nature of the tasks – from stealing to racism, drug addiction to divorce – risk ruining his life. Daly’s cheerful naivete makes “Review” watchable, but its lack of focus puts it more in the 2.5-star range.

There’s an underlying social commentary in the fundamental premise, but it’s one that never gets even remotely explained. So the meta aspects of a series that could provide a not-so-subtle indictment of reality »

‘Eastbound & Down’ Star Andy Daly Turns Racist for New Comedy Central Series (Video)

20 February 2014 3:23 PM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

With “Eastbound & Down” wound down, Andy Daly has a new gig on Comedy Central that requires transforming himself into a overt racist — among other equally horrible and hilarious things. “Review,” which premieres on March 6, is a mock newsmagazine show starring Daly as “life critic” Forrest MacNeil, who takes on challenges from viewers interested in what it’s like to eat 15 pancakes, sleep with a celebrity, or in this case, be a racist. It’s like Morgan Spurlock’s “Inside Man” on black-market steroids. Also read: Dumb Starbucks Brewed Up by Nathan Fielder’s Comedy Central Show ‘Nathan for You’ “You and your ladylike. »

Catch A Clip Of Comedy Central’s New Show ‘Review’ With Andy Daly… And Pancakes

20 February 2014 11:59 AM, PST | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

photo credit: Michael Yarish

Comedy Central is launching a new show on March 6th, and it may be your new favorite show. Cleverly titled Review, the show stars Andy Daly as critic Forrest MacNeil. Not just any critic, Forrest reviews life experiences, and he’ll take on any challenge that his viewers care to put before him.

Though some of the “Reviews” start off a little slow, like the ones on stealing and addiction, they take off after a bit of intro, and they’re pretty hilarious. The combination of Daly’s almost deadpan, nerdy character and the variety of challenges is comedy gold.

By the way, as of right now you can check out the full episode – ‘Stealing, Addiction, Prom’ – online.

Just to get you started, check out the clip below that shows you what happens when Forrest takes on the especially bizarre challenge of relating what it’s like to eat 15 pancakes. »

Talkback: 'Enlisted' - 'Rear D Day'

7 February 2014 6:30 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A busy day today means I don't have time to write about tonight's "Enlisted" — notable for the guest appearance by Andy Daly as dorky dad Rodney, for being yet another out-of-order episode (Derrick says it's only been two weeks since Pete punched the colonel in Afghanistan) and for a good Jill/Sgt. Major Cody subplot — but since you guys seem to be really enjoying the show so far, I figured I'd give you a chance to discuss "Rear D Day."  Have at it. »
