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.

Another Bad Comedy Network Show
8 October 2009 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This show is just bad, unfortunately there is no other way to say it. I know what they were going for and it was a good and interesting idea, take what has worked on other new shows like Robot Chicken and Tim and Eric Awesome show and try to do that. Have very quick, short, fast sketches one after another so that if it is bad no big deal because you are moving on to another sketch very soon. The problem is that every single sketch I have seen on this show has just been awful, I mean really awful. They have a french toast hawk who keeps attacking the same two guys in animated scenes when they eat their french toast, viciously attacking them, then a narrator saying "the french toast board says eat more french toast", seriously they have this in every episode and it is not nearly as funny as it sounds to read that description of it. The acting is terrible but the main problem is that the writing is either terrible on non-existent. The show was probably written by potheads for potheads but I don't think anybody likes this show at all, I'm sure there are people who do but I have never met one myself, just people who either haven't heard of this show or saw it but hate it like me. The only sketches I saw that were funny at all were ones that totally come from other shows, for example they have a couple decently funny sketches that are series of still shots but this idea is lifted right from the show Tom Goes To The Mayor or whatever that show was called. Anyone who watches Tim and Eric Awesome Show will recognize a lot of similar ideas here but they are weaker written and not as funny in presentation. This is a really bad show all the way around, frankly I don't see how The Comedy Network is still on the air after all the awful shows they have produced over the years. Other than Puppets Who Kill and Jon Dore's Show they have never had anything worth watching to offer.
