I am a fan of the utterly bizzare in the entertainment industry , and yes The Pitts is one bizzare show...just like FOX's past sitcoms Get A Life with Chris Elliot and Family Guy..only difference THEY WERE FUNNY
The Pitts is a sitcom with one joke..and it's not even that funny...we've had the family with bad luck done so much better in Married With Children, Malcome In The Middle , The Simpsons , Family Guy , wait a minute isn't this a coicidence..these are all FOX sitcoms?
And the humor is over the top and weird..but it's more stupid than funny..like the mentioned sitcoms above..it requires at least a tv episode plot structure , not just rapid fire sequences of bad luck...so far it's only been 2 episodes..and i've kinda just sat looking embarrassed more than I laughed..actually this series reminds me of a 30 minute Saturday Night Live skit...thats all it is..a skit..stretched to 30 minutes..not a tv show
On the other hand...hey it's different..and we all know it will build somewhat of a cult status in the future..so I guess it's interesting..in that degree...but I doubt it will last long at all It probably would belong better on Comedy Central...they're more experienced in this type of ironic twisted humor
