First of all, this is a silly, and irreverent show that obviously does not take itself seriously. Therefore, neither should the viewer.
It is the absolute pinnacle of "low-brow" humor ... which is exactly what it is aiming for. It's a real shame this show did not survive more than one and a half seasons ... fortunately it's preserved in one DVD set to be enjoyed over and over.
Bruce Campbell is at his best, and he's surrounded by a supporting cast that plays well to the far-fetched, hokey scripts. This is definitely not for those who expect to be enlightened or "challenged" by their television. This is pure, unadulterated fun.
It should also be noted that this show has, quite possibly, the catchiest 'theme song' in television history.
