One of the Greatest Shows of All Time
2 November 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I don't think there was a single episode of this show yet that i didn't like. Children's hospital has that goofy screwball humor that is one part spoof and one part just complete ridiculousness. It makes fun of pretty much every hospital show as well as other genres of television, featuring random people who just start making out at the randomest times, comically pedestrian ideas about modern medicine and plays on just about every movie cliché ever. Its like a batshît crazy ode to really really bad television and all the hilariously idiotic things it brings. They break the 4th wall in the most entertaining way and this is literally a TV show within a TV show, Rob Coddry plays Cutter Spindell who plays Blake Downs. The show alludes to the fact that its shot in Brazil or Japan making no effort to hide that its shot in Los Angeles. They even use the famous Korean bell of friendship in San Pedro as B roll to make it seem like they've moved across the seas. I think pretty much every one of the characters has died at least once only to be brought back in the most elaborately confusing way possible, everyone in the cast has screwed everyone else at least once, sometimes all in the same episode. They open each episode with "previously on children's hospital" referencing irrelevant events that never actually happened on the show and frequently draw attention to their intentional mistakes in storytelling, like the fact that they have an OBGYN in a children's hospital or a fake "live show" that totally ends in a train wreck.

This show is pure comedy gold and i suggest everyone in the world watches it. Its probably the only show in the world that made a fake spin off as a joke that actually get it picked up as a full series. Make that TWO shows. NTSF::SD:SUV is absolutely hilarious especially in its recent seasons, however, the Newsreaders spin off is more just a ripoff of onion news and they try way too hard.

If you're still not convinced, just watch this scene and you'll understand. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cG8RksCfxcw
