To get the show you must get Busey.
23 July 2004 | by (Houston, TX, USA) – See all my reviews

'I'm with Busey' was momentous.

I felt that this show was not about how funny these two were together but how entertaining they are. Whether it be comedic brilliance or stupid the entire show was entertaining. To enjoy this show you must know that Busey is not your average cliché actor in the business. He does things his way and whether or not it is funny is up to the viewer. To get the show you must get Busey.

For a complete stranger who bothered enough to follow his greatest fan and try to really get to know him has never been done before. The only time that this was even tried was some reality show where celebrities were stranded on an island together.

The show to be was about a fan (Pena) realizing that his idol (Busey) was not the same person after all and the show took a twist. The show turned into Pena trying to tolerate Busey through obstacles such as Busey as a cross dresser and Busey in the wilderness.

During the final episodes of the show Pena started to bond with Busey. The episode where the show started to show some body was when Pena and Andy Dick were together for a brief time and Pena really missed Busey.

I personally feel that this show was very entertaining and I hope the second season will come soon.
