Something to watch when nothing else is on type shows.

Basically it, the show usually airs very late at night due to it's mature subject matter, just when all the other channels are plugging in re-runs. How does this show compare to the other late-night cartoon comedies(like Adult swim, Toon at Night, etc.)? Pretty hit and miss.

The show is about Mark Dexler chilling with his 2 roomies Woody and VJ and gal pal Sam, and their quests for getting drunk and chasing tail. With such a simple story base it allows writers to be very creative with hijinks and the story, with a very anything can happen nature. And the art style is done well and suits the subject matter. Although it still has it's flaws: It aimless story idea that allows for a lot of creativity but despite it's strong efforts just doesn't make the mark(heh). The jokes and episodes never push the envelope and you'll probably guess how it ends correctly by the first couple of minutes. The characters are very vain and mean spirited just for the fun of it(but not in a "glorious bastard" or "loveable villain" way) making it hard to relate or cheer them on. And the views on race and gender sort of reinforce negative stereotypes(just slightly) rather than parody media and the general public way of thinking. The episodes that are funny or involve celebrity appearances(Russel Peters) are more pleasant surprises than anything else.

Overall The Dating Guy is an OK show.
