Creative genius in immature perfection

What a shame that re-runs of this show are dismissed so quickly by so many people. Lets be honest, nothing (besides air, food, and sex) are appealing to EVERYONE all the time, but don't be so quick to judge this show for being "terrible" or "brainless" before you really get an honest opinion. If you've seen Sarah Silverman, Brian Posehn, or Patton Oswald do stand-up and you've found it to be enjoyable, you're probably going to get a kick out of this show. However, if you prefer more realistic situational humor, you might not. The comedy is often tongue-in-cheek and most of the jokes shouldn't be quoted to strangers on a subway, but its self-aware immaturity and dark humor will definitely appeal to those that find pleasure in said humor stylings. I won't lie and say that every episode is a gem, but it's definitely more hit than miss in my opinion and lacks the slow start that often drowns out most of the real humor until latter portions of episodes. All in all, definitely a 9 of 10 for originality, lack of boundaries, and creative characters that avoid stereotypical molds that have been ripping off friends since its second season. Looking really hard at you here writers of "How I Met Your Mother". For shame.
