Trivia

After FOX passed on the pilot, another pilot was produced for MTV. This version was more to the cast's liking with raunchy, absurd skits and no studio audience. But MTV passed on the new pilot also. See more »

Exploding High-Five!
14 November 2006 | by (Frisco, Texas, United States) – See all my reviews

This is a funny pilot that was done for Fox but never aired since Fox rejected the concept. A search for the Awesometown video on Google or another search engine will lead you to 20 minutes of fun in this quirky show. It was apparently intended to be a 30 min show featuring the boys listed here. Their budding comic genius sparkles here in the perpetually perky and perfect every town, USA. The occasional introduction of reality into the sketches makes for great comic tension. It is certainly worth a look. You'll leave wanting more episodes and you will hum the Awesometown songs all day.

While the concepts are simple, the sketches are well done. Just Two Guys Having a Good Time and Castaways are memorable, but it's the theme that makes it great.
