A poor excuse for a TV show...dull, badly written, crappy animation...
24 January 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I watched a few of these episodes, and this is a mightily awful show. The animation is very poor, and if this was a deliberate choice on the part of the creators to be "ironic", they're even bigger idiots that I thought. Since when do you go out of your way to make deliberately bad animation for an entire series? Another reviewer put it as "smart comedy in the disguise of complete shat", as if it that's incredibly subversive (which it isn't) to make a really bad show. Ed Wood used to do that all the time, but his stuff was funnier than this show. And this isn't smart; it's the usual smug Gen X comedy.

The dialog is overly political, shrill, and is really preaching to the choir. While you may agree with much of it (ironically, I do), it's nothing we haven't heard before from Air America Radio, Margaret Cho, Patton Oswalt, or Janeane Garofalo (who does the voice of the bearded clam here). The dialog is rendered in a lackadaisical fashion, almost as if the cast was asleep, or maybe it's another stab at so-called "irony", or being deliberately bad. The show seems like another parody of Superfriends, a Gen X obsession that really needs to go away. The show has been canceled (mercifully so) by Comedy Central. Let's keep it that way...
