Haven't laughed so hard at a first episode since Good Vibes!
As a 24 year old guy with an awesome sense of humour, well Betty White has always appealed to me, at least since seeing her wicked sense of humour in various marketing campaigns as well as other bits and pieces. I was half expecting the show to be about old people "off their rockers" and to my delight it's about old people pranking the more youthful, though it appears no one is too old to be pranked. The best part, at least so far, it doesn't appear the people being pranked are actually actors in on the joke.
I've watched the first episode and haven't laughed as hard or as much at a show since seeing the first episode of Good Vibes quite a few months back. While it may not be everyones cup of tea, well those with a true funnybone, those equipped with having viewed many hours of comedy TV shows and movies, from all genres, under their belts, well to say the least, you should get quite a laugh, at least from the first episode of Betty White's Off Their Rockers.
Having only watched the first episode so far, I can't accurately say whether it'll continue being as funny, but man, to those wanting something 'fresh' (even if some jokes are borrowed) then give this a go. If you don't laugh at least once during the first episode, then perhaps it's time to think about checking out of Hotel Earth... ;)
My idea of comedy? Well here's some other funny TV shows I enjoy/ed; Good Vibes, South Park, Crank Yankers, Bored To Death, Chuck, Fonejacker, That '70s Show, Wilfred, Robot Chicken, Workaholics, IT Crowd, Family Guy, Futurama, Boston Legal, Beavis and Butthead (new season) -- there's a ton more but that's a pretty diverse list of shows that have all, at one point or another, had me (quite literally) in tears laughing.
So take from this what you will, just don't go by the bogus reviews trolls/haters will be sure to leave.
