ONN Grabs You By the Short & Curlies and Doesn't Let Go!
22 January 2011 | by (Florida) – See all my reviews

Take the funniest of The Onion's print stories and put them in a CNN/FOX NEWS tabloid show setting and you've got THE ONION NEWS NETWORK. It's not the kind of thing that would likely air on one of the big 4 networks during prime time...but it should.

In a lot of ways it reminded me of that great British TV comedy series called BRASS EYE (1997) in how far they go for a gag. Like BRASS EYE, the humor goes to dark places to produce some great laugh-out-loud moments and there are plenty.

It's not often that the first episode of a series captivates me enough to be on board for the long haul but ONN did. It's lightning fast pace and sharp, biting jokes grab you from minute one and they don't let up for a moment. I'm sold. The rest of the season can't get here quick enough.
