Skats the Clown,
I just watched the first episode of this show on Itunes and I have to say that although there is a bit more storyline than jokes, this show is HILARIOUS. The characters are far more mature than what is seen in typical Farelly brothers comedy, which actually makes the show far more appealing. I think that this first show played it safe as far as "edginess", and given the context of what this show's subject matter portrays, you can expect a lot more from this show in the coming weeks. I can't say this show will have a serious future like Friends or Seinfeld, but I can definitely see this show going for a while. I mean seriously, who hasn't secretly snickered at something COMPLETELY childish *ahem dumb and dumber*? It's a great comedy for the child in adults and I think it will definitely do well. Definitely can't wait to see more!
