Not silly. Not stoner humor. Insipid, cheap, and lazy.
26 June 2007 | by See all my reviews

You know what, there's silly, dumb television and movies for when your brain is fried. I have no problems with that kind of junk food TV.

And then there is insipid. And insipid is never amusing. This show, along with its idiot sibling Drawn Together, is insipid.

The writing is lazy. The jokes are obvious and easy. Of all of the talented humorists and animators out there, it irritates me that shows like these are green-lit. Yeah, Cheney kind of mumbles. Ha ha. We get it. Yeah, no really, we get it. Okay, enough already.

This show is *cheap*. The humor is cheap. It is especially depressing when you compare it to something like The Daily Show, Colbert, or even South Park. And, incidentally, it's got nothing to do with your political opinion or how you feel about George Bush. It has to do with having your intelligence insulted.

At this point, Bush is an easy target. Watching dry, straight news from the major networks is itself a laugh riot if it doesn't make you cry. This show just riffs on the obvious. It adds nothing to the already fairly rich tradition of Bush Administration satire.

With this show, they're not even trying. I can really chalk up subjective differences of opinion when it comes to a lot of shows I don't like. I can usually abstractly understand why someone would like something I don't.

But I am at a loss as to why even those who like really lowbrow humor would like this. The show is simply poor. I'd really like to know who is asleep at the wheel at Comedy Central.

And to those who would defend it as "stoner humor" -- horse puckey. No amount of drugs or alcohol would make this funny. This is an insult to the intelligence of (even the wicked mad high) Comedy Central viewers, as well as an affront to talented writers who actually take some time to write decent satire.

And as for comments about the voice talent, well, this doesn't sound like a dead-on impression of George Bush. This sounds like a dead-on impression of someone else doing a George Bush impression.

Complete crap. Stare at the wall for a half hour instead; you'll laugh more. Pathetic.
