Disjointed, ill-conceived, and 15% funny at best
17 August 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In short, Big Lake won't last more than one season. What struck me most about the first two episodes of the series is the the show's terrible plot progression. I don't think the show's progression makes sense even on a laugh track sitcom level.

The premise of the show is good enough and unique, but the execution is lacking, and the main character's situation could have led to a much more compelling show.

I was constantly asking myself what the main characters were trying to accomplish in relation to the premise of the show. I was also struggling to remember any of the main characters' names. None of the characters are memorable, save for the history teacher (Chris Parnell) and maybe the main character's (Chris Gethard?) little brother.

I don't think I've ever seen such horrible story progression in a single episode, even in a sitcom.

Finally, Chris Gethard is the most un-funny, annoying character on the show and he's the main character. Who approved this show?

Good parts of the show: Some of Chris Parnell's jokes. A bum history teacher is definitely a great role for him. Um...Horatio Sanz's weight loss? I would rather watch this than George Lopez. Overall, the show isn't George Lopez.

Comedy Central has never really been able to produce a decent live action show (not based on stand up or sketch comedy) and the trend hasn't changed with Big Lake. I don't see a laugh-track sitcom reaching Comedy Central's demographic.
