Dopetown
1 August 2005 | by eddie3429See all my reviews

before we start off i luv animation. Simpson's to the tick, I'm not to by est but this show really disappointed me. it actually was a gr8 idea a cartoon about the pope, the word pope is funny by itself. but after i saw the first three episodes i was gravely mistaken. this was a painful show to watch. the creators kept trying to be funny so hard yet trying not to offend anyone at the same time. it is so smooth my Irish grandmother who thinks noughts and crosses is sacrilegious wouldn't find the show offensive. i have to compare this show to south park, which tho offensive often raise important issue while being edgy or funny. popetown offers none of this. and apart from story character designs are horrible, and ruby wax may have a face for voice over but she doesn't have the talent. spend this half an hour at a fun areal u'll laugh a lot harder
