Darker and weirder than The League
2 January 2015 | by Bento_de_EspinosaSee all my reviews

Maybe it's not as funny as The League, but it's brilliant! If you really are a fan of dark comedy, then nothing can please you more than Psychoville. It's the darkest and weirdest comedy I have ever seen! It never gets boring, since it's full of surprises. You never know what is going to happen next. So, apart from being funny, it's suspenseful as well. Amazing how many ideas two comedians can have. Rece's and Steve's abilities to play different characters are amazing. I bet most actors can't change that much.

Production values are very high, it's movie quality. Pity it lasted only two seasons.
