too "inside"
15 October 2006 | by See all my reviews

Looking at the cast of writers and voices, there are a lot of veterans of independent and underground type comedy. This show is probably more fun for them to make, than for us to watch.

The animation is crappy but that doesn't get in the way of funny. Trying to hang all the comedy on just being odd and different is what gets in the way of funny.

There's also a whiff of a mean little vibe like "you're not cool enough to realize how funny this show is". There have been plenty of comedy routines that are more about making people squirm in confusion than laugh out loud, and this might be another one.

Maybe it's just too early in the run, but if it doesn't get less "inside" soon, it's history.
