show is spectacular in the sphere it operates in...no pun intended.
5 December 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Children's Hospital, Rob Corddry's ridiculous brain child, is not going to be every person's cup of tea. The comedy and subsequent dynamic of the show is so backwards and frivolous that it takes a certain kind of sense of humor, one could say a versatile one, in order to truly enjoy it. I like to believe that certain kinds of comedy, Children's Hospital for example, are not found funny for two reasons: one, it may actually miss the mark and not be funny, or, second, this is most common, people do not find things funny because they do not actually have a sense of humor.

There are countless things in Children's Hospital that people can write off as stupid, moronic, dumb, or contrived, but what else are you looking for from a comedy? This is not Frasier, this is not a comedy that has set out to reinvent the wheel and adapt a doctoral parody into the most clever and brilliant show in existence, and it is imperative that the audience understands that. This is Rob Corddry and Rob Huebel we are talking about, both hysterical actors with impeccable timing and comedic talents, but neither of which will be accepting an Oscar any time soon. Each show, movie, film, or other piece of performance art is relative in its own right. Children's Hospital is no different. If I want to thoroughly enjoy myself, belly laugh at length, and follow some of the most ludicrously bumbling characters I've come across, I watch this show. When I want something with depth, drama, and consistent cleverness I watch Modern Family or Parks and Recreation.

This show is spectacular in the sphere it operates in...no pun intended.
