Ultra conservative comedy
1 August 2006 | by (Texas, USA) – See all my reviews

"Monty" marked a come-back for Henry Winkler to comedy television, in front of the camera. The "Fonze" was all grown up! We were also introduced to David Schwimmer who was even less likable in "Monty" than in "Friends". Still, we liked not liking him.

The show was incredibly funny. The jokes were unapologetically conservative and therefore much of the humor was lost on liberal audiences. Most people who saw it either loved or hated the show. I suspect that those in the latter group voiced their opinions loudly. Sadly, the series was canceled after just a few episodes.

Many successful conservative programs first met with initial resistance that eventually wore down. Who knows? Maybe Monty may have succeeded if it had been allowed to persist beyond this difficult initial stage.
