I liked it in the beginning, but it went far downhill.
I'm one of the very few people who are willing to admit I enjoyed Fred's first few episodes. I didn't love them, but I felt entertained. Then it felt like the show just got worse with time. I think there are three main reasons for this. One is the fact that it got way to monotonous. It kept on doing the same formula over a billion times. The fact is Fred's act gets annoying after a while. Reason number two is the fact that it became to kid friendly. When the Fred franchise got involved with Nickoldeon it lost a lot of dirty humor. They stopped focusing on stuff like Fred's alcoholic hoar mother, and tried to get more into Fred unpopularity with the other kids. This just made the show start to feel like I was watching one of those Disney Channel or Nick live action TV shows about teenagers in school. It got to a point where I felt like Miley Cirus was going to jump onto the screen, and start making my ears bleed. Third is how the show became a flat out cash cow. When the guy who made these videos realized he could make money off it he started George Lucasing it. He constantly advertised Fred products, and put in-show advertisements. I stayed with the show hoping that it would make a comeback, but eventually I had to click the unsubscribe button. I recommend the first few episodes, but other than that I can't recommend.
