Very funny!
11 August 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

To me, this is one of the funniest new shows on television. The sight gags and characters, story lines, situations - everything - just comes together and makes for a very amusing and entertaining program format.

I have actually worked in an auto body shop and, let me tell you, some of this stuff is pretty close to reality! The employees and the beautiful receptionist are right on target. The owner is not the usual sleazy character that is usually associated with these kinds of operations, which is a nice departure from the norm. He ends up being more at the mercy of his employees rather than the slave-driving overlord.

The writers surely have some inside experience in the world of auto body repair or they must know someone who does.

Comedy Central has a winner here - if they don't screw it up!
