Discovery Shows Its Comedic Side
13 May 2007 | by See all my reviews

I have a tendency to like shows with good comedy, and I think this was one of them. Discovery wanted to loosen up a bit and decided to have America make fun of their shows, and you'd get $500 if Discovery thought it was crazy enough.

The first spoofs/parodies were the best in my opinion, mostly ones for Mythbusters and Future Weapons. Future Weapons had an awesome one called "Rejected Future Weapons", where the host made up a bunch of unrealistic and pointless (though hilarious) weapons, ending with the host being shot up in a jet pack, resulting in explosion. (Mike Rowe admitted that Discovery doesn't edit out explosions, they play them back in slow motion). The Mythbusters ones poked fun at the butter side down myth, Adam's hyperactive self and Jamie's dullness. (Adam and Jamie were both portrayed as dull in "Tesla's DETH Ray", which I had given a thumb's up to) Cash Cab was also funny, but the videos were very typical; host asks impossible questions and dumps them out. But I like the Cash Cab, so I laughed a bit.

Okay, you get me, I really liked this comedy attempt, which is one of the few attempts that actually worked.
