So bad you have to leave your house and punch somebody!
I guess you already guessed my opinion on Popcultured is that it does not belong on TV.
To let you know who I am before reading the review I am 50+ and live in Toronto. I have 4 kids including 2 teens and 2 grandkids. I am retired and watch a lot of TV and mostly the comedy channel which is the channel that airs Popcultured.
I have seen a lot of Canadian comedy shows but Popcultured is definitely the worst I have ever seen. The Trouble With Tracy was really bad and Mike Bullard was so horrible I never thought it could be bested but Popcultured is far and above the worst show (worst COMEDY show) I have ever seen in my entire life. In my opinion.
The writing is so bad it borders "unbelievable". IT's like there is nobody there who is responsible for reading over the jokes or watching them before they get put on TV, like the writers just write the first thing that comes to mind and hand it in. The jokes seem to always seem either old and maybe even borrowed or stolen. Otherwise they are just plain bad!! The worst thing though has to be Elvira the host. She has no talent for hosting and no talent for comedy either so how does she get to host a comedy show? As a host she has no idea what she is doing or how to talk to the audience or interview guests.
The production values are also bad but I guess that most Canadian shows are like that nowadays. It doesn't take a lot to see that the show is also taken from The Daily Show.
The people being interviewed are also terrible and almost always it is somebody I haven't ever heard of anyway.
The other people on the show are also just annoying and don't belong on TV in my opinion. I haven't laughed once watching this show.
The director is terrible! It has to be at least a large part the fault of the director that everybody on the show is so bad and that the material is so bad that they put on TV.
This show is bad in every possible way in my mind which is the only way how it is worse than other such horrible shows as Mike Bullard and Trouble With Tracey.
If you want to watch something funny then watch the real The Daily Show or turn the channel when Popcultured is on or put in a tape or just turn off the TV and read the paper and make up your own jokes.
