I'm in the Band - My Kids' Favorite Show
15 January 2010 | by tvcritictrustmeSee all my reviews

I'm an online TV critic and "I'm in the Band" is the funniest show I've seen in years. It made my son and daughter laugh out loud so hard we had to pause the show multiple times just so they could hear the next joke. And let me tell you -- that's rare.

I watch shows with them on Nickelodeon (iCarly), Cartoon Network (Ben 10), Disney Channel (Wizards, Hannah, Suite Life), Disney XD (Phineas & Ferb, Zeke & Luther) but "I'm in the Band" is easily their favorite, and has quickly become mine too. It's not trying to be a show for kids. It's smart, funny and outrageous while still managing to be a cool show that adults can enjoy as well.

Derek, Burger and Ash play that smart/dumb rocker comedy *perfectly* as the once famous rock band Iron Weasel, and Tripp is so much fun to watch, as is his best friend Izzy. I'm sure both will become huge stars overnight. Really fantastic acting on this show with high caliber talent.

Sure, there are fart jokes, but at least they are witty and hilarious fart jokes. A lot of shows talk down to kids and offer simple stories we've seen a hundred times with a bunch of puns but "I'm in the Band" is written so well, perfectly blending outrageous physical comedy and great jokes while still managing to be smart and original.

This show is Spinal Tap for a new generation, and my kids and their friends can't stop talking about it. I'm not a betting person, but I'll bet "I'm in the Band" is sure to be a hit for Disney XD. Finally, a show I'm happy to watch with my kids and their friends week after week.
