Storyline

Hotbox is a show about a glowing hot metal box from outer space that crashes to earth and is retrieved by a group of scientists. As the scientists examine the box in their top secret facilities, viewers are zoomed in to the different weird symbols that line the outside of the strange alien artifact. What's going on inside the box is the real show! A wonderfully absurd world of sketches, cartoons, commercial parodies, puppets, fake movie trailers like: Dinner in Space, commercials starring Robocop, Flaunty Flour Festival, Festival of Whips, Salty's Gym, Cthulu and Jim, and a lawyer named Hot Garbage.

Not Funny

Okay, first I want to clear something up from one of the earlier comments that only Pot Heads would like this show. And just from them saying that I can tell they haven't so much as had a hit. I am an admitted pot head, and I found this show god awful. I was high when I first watched it, and nothing. Smoking pot doesn't mean you think ANYTHING is funny, and can mindlessly laugh at anything. We're not mindless. We have a conscious mind when we're under the influence. Sure, you might laugh a bit more at funny things. But, they still have to be funny. So, don't speak for us unless you've walked in our shoes, please. Thank you.

Anyways, this show is awful. I don't see how it got to the pilot stage. I want to personally go to the Comedy Network and just tell the person in charge of Canadian talent what a shitty job they're doing. This? Tim & Eric? Running old episodes of Royal Canadian Air Farce, This Hour has 22 Minutes and Red Green? WTF? They had a little something with Jon Dore in the first season, but watching the second one I don't know what's happening. Just for Laughs has had tons of Canadian Comedians that were hilarious over the years. Unless they've just been turning down the Comedy Network for a chance at their own shows all these years, they should be picking some of them up. Do they want people to think this is what ALL Canadians think is funny? Do they want Canadian viewers to look at it compared to American Comedy shows (not the chubby husband, hot wife kind) and think "why don't we have something like this?" Hell, Fox has canceled better shows than most of the Canadian shows that run for more than 10 years.

The sketches look like they've had about 5 minutes of work put into them. If they're going to be that lazy about it, they should at least take some improv classes. I'm not going to support a show that lets sketches like "Music Pants", "Basketball Cops", that Cream thing pass as regular sketches. What ever they're paying these actors, writers, etc. It's too much...
