And Now For Something Completely Awful
28 June 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

There used to be a channel called the Independent Film Channel that would show independent films. You could discover new filmmakers, new voices, see movies that never reached your local multiplexes especially if there wasn't an art house or specialty cinema in your hood.

Sadly that wasn't good enough so the Independent Film Channel, which called itself IFC, had to switch over to an ad supported model. They still showed independent films, interrupted by commercials. Even though they were billed as uncut the films were tarnished by advertising, their rhythms destroyed, their running times elongated.

After that they started adding studio comedies, Hollywood blockbusters and other fare that had nothing to with the original purpose of the channel. Then they started adding repeats of sitcoms including shows you could watch anywhere else like MALCOM IN THE MIDDLE. They showed THE LARRY SANDERS SHOW with commercials and cut it for time, unlike the way it was first shown on HBO.

And then IFC started adding original programming, half hour sketch "comedies" that looked awfully cheap to produce. They said they were no longer the Independent Film Channel, just IFC, and joked how "it stands for nothing" and backed it up by airing a show like this, THE BIRTHDAY BOYS, a lame sketch comedy where a bunch of indistinguishable YouTube comedians frolicked about while trying to keep to a theme. Bob Odenkirk occasionally sticks his toe in the water and appears, instantly shaming the newbies by being a more polished performer. I thought Broken Lizard formed a talent challenged troop with no decent personalities emerging, but this pack is far worse. Their combined presences are a blur of unfunny.

Seriously? Why is this even on? No one talks about it. I heard the "network" trying to compare it to MONTY PYTHON which is the ultimate blasphemy.
