Dark, Edgy & Different
3 August 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

SLEDGE HAMMER was a favorite show in my house growing up. I read a recent review of the DVD that called it "the best television action comedy of its generation" and revisiting it showed it was much more sophisticated than I remembered. That show mixed action, slapstick, verbal puns, pointed satire and character comedy and continually broke the rules. The earnest right wing jingoism preceded Stephen Colbert by a few decades.

I wasn't sure what to expect from BULLET IN THE FACE coming from the same funny creator of SLEDGE HAMMER. It aired here in the states as a special event amongst a week of hardcore action flicks. Unlike SLEDGE HAMMER this show featured more graphic violence. It wasn't "Borsch Belt" humor, as another reviewer inaccurately claimed, but closer to a vivid graphic novel. This wasn't a parody of anything specific, but the writer's use of tropes was pretty cool. The plots kept me involved as well as the anarchist wit. One episode mocked organized religion. Another disparaged the energy drink industry. The final episode packed more story than I've seen in any other half hour.

For me, the standout performer was Eddie Izzard who really connected with the material. He was hilarious, but also menacing. This was one of the more original shows I've seen in many a moon and I could see why it made some people nervous, especially if they were conservative. People got shot in the face a lot and the blood flowed. This was a darker comedy than I was expecting and also featured one of the catchiest themes I've heard. Had this aired as a weekly series, it would have caught on more than it did. It was nice to see a comedy truly go out there. BULLET IN THE FACE isn't for everybody, but that seemed to be the point. The fact that it shocked some people made it even funnier.
