I didn't think anyone else in the world ever saw this show...
15 January 2005 | by See all my reviews

I've been telling people about this TV show i watched when i was like 14 for years, i really didn't think anyone else had ever seen this show. I would always tell people about the show Stephen Dorff was on before anyone knew who he was, i just couldn't believe that someone really made a show about a talking dummy. But i do have to admit that i watched the show a lot. Although i do not think that i ever actually enjoyed it, I'm not sure why i watched it. It is kinda of like a car wreck you just have to watch. I'm not sure i can even think of a show that was worse than this show, although i have seen a lot of really bad shows that were only on for maybe half a season. But i would have to say this is one of the worst ideas for a TV show. There are some runner ups in this contest, Alf being one of them. It made perfect sense when i found out the guy that created Alf was on drugs, who would have guessed. I'm sure i could go on and on about this subject, but I'm going to bring this to an end for now. Id also have to recommend Hey,Dude for this contest even though i really did love that show.
