Tenacious D Rocks
8 April 1999 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Tenacious D is a different kind of show. It revolves around a pair of guys who apparently have no jobs and whose lives revolve around going to the local bar on open mike night and playing together and calling themselves Tenacious D. I have no idea what that name means, though. A lot of the jokes are inside jokes between the two cast members (Kyle Gass and Jack Black). Although you kind of get the idea of what they mean by some of the made up words and phrases that they use (i.e. poops MgGee). The songs that they play have lyrics that are hilarious but also the songs have a great melody to them, not just some crap that sounds bad. It sounds GOOD and so does the vocals of Jack Black, who really has a great voice. So, if you like Mr. Show on HBO (Bob and Dave from Mr. Show produce this series), then there's a good chance that you'll like the offbeat humor that Tenacious D has.
