Storyline

Bill, Brian, John, and Joel Murray provide a comedic look at the game of golf in this documentary travelogue of the foursome playing golf courses while spoofing the whole sport. It should be noted that the brothers are devout players of the game, but their comedic skills simply enter their play. A fifth brother, Ed, also makes an occasional appearance.

Very funny, but without some shallow spots...
3 April 2002 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I caught the pilot of this new series last night, it's first airing. I have to say, I was impressed. I love Bill and Bryan-Doyle Murray, and I've been introduced to 2 new brothers in this show who are also pretty funny. The problem with this show is that it carries that goofy, obnoxious, dumb feel that most Comedy Central original series' do (i.e. Upright Citizens Brigade, Strangers With Candy, Strip Mall.) But that is easily overlooked and not very hard to forget about, due to the Murray brothers being so funny. Also since there is no real plot to it, it leaves you to enjoy the comedy and not have to try and decipher the dumb storyline, like in the above listed shows. Overall, this is a pretty good series, and I'm looking forward to watching it for however long it may run, hopefully a long time. Heres to hoping Bill decides to do Ghostbusters III while enjoying himself golfing.
