Gets old very quickly as simply one gag with a writing staff that sucks
1 January 2016 | by (Ft. Lauderdale, FL) – See all my reviews

Fist I read I review I find actually more humorous than the show as it inferred that in between the humor you may learn something about history. My guess is the shows creators would also find that funny as hell. One the other hand assuming the comment was serious you really have to wonder about this shows target market. Personally I love Adult Swim, the Cartoon Network and adult humor. I have watched a few of these shows and personally don't find them funny at all (maybe the first 10 minutes of the first show, after that every episode seems sort of based on the same gag. If the writing was better this could be a great show in terms of intellectual humor. Instead it seems more slapstick as the more the actor talks the more absurd the humor becomes , if you can find humor in it. Besides the writing the acting really is pretty bad. Acting drunk is likely not easy while at the same time having to recite lines that I guess are meant to become lamer by the minute. I feel embarrassed frankly for those involved and once again the premise of drunken distortion of history gets old quickly when the writing sucks. Finally the entire concept of making light of those loosing control while drinking and trying, and not succeeding, to get people to laugh at the drunk just strikes me wrong for some reason. And just to make clear I not a religious person so comments coming from that angle, I admit I am likely older than the target audience (55 and a professional) but I have none the less never been accused of being overly mature.

I am typically a big fan of humor which pushes the limit and sets new standards (I am the type who see shows such as the Simpsons as funny but tame in the sense of not wanting to push the limits so as not to offend anyone and retain a broad audience. I totally understand the reasoning and it has generated a ton of money no two ways about it. However I think shows like Rick and Morty, South Park and canceled shows such as Brickellberry to be much more entertaining. I thought God, The Devil and Bob, Firsky Dingo and others that pushed the bounds as funny. I know this show is not a cartoon so to compare more apples to apples the humor and writing skills ranks up there with the old Benny Hill show.
