I signed up on imdb just so I could let people know the reviews for Going To California are wrong. There is finally a show that actually plays with the television formula. This is one of very few experimental tv programs out there. The other reviewers just cant seem to stray from their laugh track, clean cut, half hour sitcoms. This show maintains what it means to be a television show, while trying some very new things. First of all, the preceding reviewers seem only to have watched one episode, this will not do. While each show stands on its own, like other tv shows, the characters are very serial. To really understand why Ungalow, and Space are the way they are, you have to watch many episodes. This is what makes it perfect for TV, with a show that has a constant change in environment, you need something constant. GTC also has some of the best cinematography I have ever seen on a tv show, the director really knows how to use the came ra as part of the story.
The one problem is the unreality of the storylines, sometimes Hank and Ung really get themselves into rather unrealistic situations. That is part of the charm of the show, it takes experiences one might encounter on the road, and intensifies them 10 times. It allows you to understand there is special forces at work, Space and Ung's trip has to do with fate, and a search for meaning...that kinda stuff.
Overall, the dialog, and how it is acted out is just so perfect. Sam Tremmell, and Brad Henke really let you become their third buddy on the road. They have the perfect on screen friendship. The two of them are just hilarious together. I can't praise this show enough, I only wish it was on HBO, so then the whole world would give some attention to GTC. Trust me, commit yourself and watch for a few weeks, then you will fully embrace the charm of this great show.
