Two guys in their early 30s are human guinea pigs for a testing facility known as Testico. As they try to live their lives as normally as possible, they have to deal with the potential side... See full summary »
As a big Kenny vs Spenny fan I might have been expecting a bit much here- Spenny finally gets his own show with a chance to shine, step up and show what he can do without chief antagonist Kenny there to foil all his well laid out plans. But what we actually get is something far different. Lots of Spenny's neurotic behavior just like we came to expect in the K vs S series, but without any real villain to play off of the plot attempts to go in a thousand different directions at once, but ultimately bogs down due to lack of any clear objective.
The whole premise of this show as far as I can tell is to explore the issues a mid-forties man-child has with the various woman in his life. One of the issues with the main character is he's supposed to be a socially inept nerd due to the love he never received as a child from his mother (played very well I might add by Debra McGrath). Of course simply building on that premise is not enough for our intrepid hero as he eventually pushes the character over the top into full retard mode with brilliant lines such as: "mommy said to wash my hands after making a duty" and who can ever forget that memorable scene in the park where a jovial Spenny cuts loose on the balance beam and kiddie slide...classic stuff!
Spenny, if you're reading this what I'd like to know is if you're afraid of getting type cast from the whole K vs S thing then why are you still doing a another variation on the Spenny theme? Why not flesh out a whole new character and take it in a completely different direction. Personally I think you'd be great as some sort of action super hero fighting the forces of evil on a weekly basis. What makes your character unique could be the way he acquires his super powers, such as injecting frozen semen...call him Captain Canada or even Cockman if you can slip it by the censors.
Of course an encore season of K vs S might also work for all us die-hard fans...Cheers!
