User Reviews

 
One of the funniest TV parodies since SNL.
20 August 2005 | by ianoflcccSee all my reviews

If you're a fan of comedy, and a fan of television, and especially a fan of "The Fairly Odd Parents", then "Channel Chasers" is for you. This special 90-minute episode of "The Fairly Odd Parents" is one of my favorite episodes of the entire series, largely because of the television spoofs. It also gives a little lesson on the facts of life (and no, I'm not talking about the Norman Lear sitcom), but I can't tell you exactly what happens; you'll have to see it for yourself. And more likely than not, you'll enjoy it, especially if you enjoy seeing television being spoofed, and the shows were spoofed real well, something rivaled only by Saturday Night Live.
