I'm an online TV critic and "I'm in the Band" is the funniest show I've
seen in years. It made my son and daughter laugh out loud so hard we
had to pause the show multiple times just so they could hear the next
joke. And let me tell you -- that's rare.
I watch shows with them on Nickelodeon (iCarly), Cartoon Network (Ben 10), Disney Channel (Wizards, Hannah, Suite Life), Disney XD (Phineas & Ferb, Zeke & Luther) but "I'm in the Band" is easily their favorite, and has quickly become mine too. It's not trying to be a show for kids. It's smart, funny and outrageous while still managing to be a cool show that adults can enjoy as well.
Derek, Burger and Ash play that smart/dumb rocker comedy *perfectly* as the once famous rock band Iron Weasel, and Tripp is so much fun to watch, as is his best friend Izzy. I'm sure both will become huge stars overnight. Really fantastic acting on this show with high caliber talent.
Sure, there are fart jokes, but at least they are witty and hilarious fart jokes. A lot of shows talk down to kids and offer simple stories we've seen a hundred times with a bunch of puns but "I'm in the Band" is written so well, perfectly blending outrageous physical comedy and great jokes while still managing to be smart and original.
This show is Spinal Tap for a new generation, and my kids and their friends can't stop talking about it. I'm not a betting person, but I'll bet "I'm in the Band" is sure to be a hit for Disney XD. Finally, a show I'm happy to watch with my kids and their friends week after week.
Saw this show for the first time tonight and must admit it did make me
laugh several times while watching. Sure it is a bit on the silly side
airing on the Disney Channel or Disney XD and the characters are a bit
over the top. But really aren't all the characters in sitcoms over the
top? Really the show is no more ridiculous than 2 1/2 men or the like
and certainly less idiotic than Family Guy and the like.
What it does offer is a show kids can watch and laugh at some of the really dumb stuff and older viewers can watch and enjoy with out a 30 minute stream of sex jokes and offensive humour. One episode I saw had a good deal of semi dark humour as a girls dad/ record producer was having a funeral for her cat "Hip Hop". The band members thought the producer was saying the music style was dead and they were there to celebrate and say how happy they were Hip Hop was dead. Throw in a missing dead cat and some serving trays and I thought it was the funniest funeral since Mary Tyler Moore.
Don't let the "kids Show" label dissuade you from giving this show a look.
THIS SHOW IS GOLD! It's better than all the other Disney crap they show
(Fanny Montana, Wizards of Waverly Losers, Jonas, etc) The humor is
fresh, the actors are actually extremely better than the actors on
Disney Channel. Really a great show. I'm am so glad I found a
astonishing comedy. (After Drake and Josh lost touch)
So ignore all those haters, because they are obviously brainwashed by todays music, and never knew how great Heavy Metal was. And, the name of the band in this show is absolutely funny. "Iron Weasel." Spoof for "Iron Maiden." Gradually a show that needs to obtain an orange blimp on The Kids Choice Awards.
I don't understand how some people are talking about it being totally
unrealistic and then they start bringing up Hannah Montanah. Talk about
unrealistic. First of all, it's nothing alike (This is funny, that
sucks), but second of all, I don't really see the big deal here. It's a
Disney show. It's meant for kids. Why should it be realistic? It's a
lot better than a lot of other kids' shows I've seen (Hannah Montanah,
Zack & Cody, iCarly etc)
That said, I just think it's a really funny show. I'm 17 years old right now and I just about cried because I was laughing so loud. It's not some stupid show just for kids, it's really funny. Yeah, some of the jokes are a bit lame, but that all depends on what you like. I think it's great. The characters are really funny, with the three dumb (well, two dumb and one even dumber) rockers and the one smart teenager. The jokes might be a bit easy, but they're just so random that I can't stop laughing about it.
So, taken all that into account, I think this show is great! I wouldn't mind watching it again.

First off associating metal with this show is an insult to metal these characters are just functionally retarded and play to the stereotype of the stupid dunder headed metal musician. Secondly there is no real metal to be found here despite promises to the contrary mind you this isn't at all surprising considering this is a Disney show but they could have done a better job than poorly imitating hair rock (nope that wasn't metal) a lousy genre to begin with. I can't speak for the actors because i haven't seen most of them anywhere else caitlyn taylor love is cute and steve valentine who is kinda funny i've seen in a few other things but that's all i've got on that. I will give one compliment and say the hip hop is dead episode was pretty funny though.

From viewing the pilot episode, all I can say is: What? Unrealistic.
Honestly, even though this is a Disney show, it's still unrealistic. A teen (an ugly one, at that) wants to play and perform in his favorite rock band, Iron Weasel. (Seriously? Iron Weasel?) Tripp wins a radio contest and gets to have dinner with the members of Iron Weasel. (My guess is that Tripp was the only one that actually entered, seeing that Iron Weasel SUCKS.) Then, the members of Iron Weasel are looking for a place to live, (because the idiot hobos live in their VAN) and when Tripp offers up his house, they grab it at the spot. (Greedy little hobos...XD) Oh, but guess what? In order for us viewers to give Tripp a little sympathy, his mom is divorced. And his friend, Izzy, is a girl that likes to eat half-eaten churros out of the garbage. (Can you say disgusting?) Unoriginal.
Basically, "I'm in the Band" is just a version of Hannah Montanna with a boy as the main character and a 'metal' (I seriously feel the need to break something) sound instead of teenybopper mediocre music. Except, NOBDOY likes Iron Weasel at Tripp's school, until they magically become great and everyone shouts 'encore'.
Fart jokes. Idiotic adult supervision. Anit-climatic plots and ugly characters. In short, this is the worst Disney show.
And I'm not saying that kindly.
This is Hanna Montana except with a rock band, this is a piece of junk
from the people and the company brought us that terrible show, A Teen
wants to revive a rock band called Iron Weasel to make them become
famous again, good grief, this show is just junk throughout, the
performances are really bad, two completely wasted talents (Greg Baker
& Steve Valentine)who been so good in other TV shows in the late 90 and
early 2000's, blandy, unfunny subplots, terrible episodes and dull
teleplay, this show is not only a disgrace to the true nature of metal
scene, but music as a whole, this is just truly shameful, this piece of
trash is top of the heap, hapless garbage and it's a shame that crap
like this is still on, this is just like the crappy reality shows and
other trends, all style and certainly no substance and we haters hate
this one, because it's a disgrace, this is really the top candidate for
the worst TV show of 2010 and it shows how television has really gone
to crap after this.
This is trendy, state of the art, hopeless enterprise.
If you want better TV shows from Greg baker and Steve valentine, I Suggest you watch Sports Night on DVD and Crossing Jordan.
This is possibly the worst show associated with music since homeboys from outer space.
