Bland and lacking in every aspect
21 May 2012 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Anyone comparing this show to the immaturity and off kilter humor of shows like Family Guy or The Simpsons needs to understand what comedy is. This show isn't funny, regardless of who it's target audience is. The jokes are more sterile then an emergency room during rush hour, the plot lines are dumb and pointless, and has already gone the way of Allen Gregory, which in itself was an absolutely horrible show that lacked in the funny department. You see, the vast majority of people who like animated comedies, like the immaturity of the jokes, not trying to fill the plot with social awkwardness. Napoleon Dynamite tries to take everything that was marginally decent about the movie and make it into an animated show. Guess what one thing animated shows have the live action films don't? The ability to go beyond the sense of logic and maturity in order to stretch the bounds of comedy. Whatever panel at FOX (and Global for us Canadians), approved this show, needs to get their funny senses fixed, as animated comedies should all be funnier then this bland show. Seth MacFarlane and Matt Groening got it right with their shows, the geniuses who wrote this garbage took what was a decent movie and bastardized a one time hit by trying to make an animated comedy out of it.
