Dumbed Down Version of the Web Cartoon
5 April 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Unfortunate.

The problem is that this show could be really good. If you were a fan of the old Professor Brothers web videos that Brad Neely put out, and then transitioned into the show, you'll notice it lacks the smartness and wit that probably got it put on television to begin with.

I was extremely excited that one of my favorite online sources of entertainment finally got lifted out of obscurity and projected to a larger audience. But all the things I liked about the web cartoons were missing from the television show.

The Professor Brothers web cartoons were smart. Funny. Especially the parts where Frank was lecturing (The story of Lot, Helen Keller) - not to mention the multi part Funeral episodes were in my opinion were not only smart but profound. Another thing I liked about the web show that I thought was refreshing is that it was a cartoon that didn't involve characters exploding, or other non possible surreal things that is so prevalent on adult swim. It was a smart cartoon, that was hilarious, and sometimes moving when it brought up certain aspects of this world we live in.

Then it went on TV, and boy was it way different. No more smartness, no more profoundness. The disappointment was great. It was just another surreal, ridiculous thing I'd seen before. The web episodes were different. They were special, they had a quality and rarity you couldn't find anywhere else online or on TV.

Basically my point is Neely totally sold out, bro.
