Accidentally funny
28 February 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I watched the first 5 minutes of the first show and was immediately turned off, which I literally did to the channel. I changed it! This show appears to be vaguely modeled on Dharma and Greg, which was funny, until the producers added a baby to the plot and ruined that show.

The acting is TERRIBLE. The writing is plain stupid, and the characters' delivery of the dialog is strained. I hear the actors' minds saying, "I'm trying so hard to be funny. I hope the audience thinks I am." I have forced myself to watch the show a couple more times. Was just a stupid as the first. The lady with the fake accent is retarded. The roommates are a waste of space and should be blacklisted, so they don't act on any other shows.

It appears my suffering will be over soon. I've seen ads for "Rules of Engagement" (which IS funny) in the same time slot as this idiotic "sitcom." I thought "What about Joan" was a bad as a sitcom can get. Congratulations for the producers of Accidentally on Purpose to prove me wrong!
