Good and bad
27 October 2010 | by trinity-destlerSee all my reviews

The beginning and end of the episode were quick, funny, and genuinely sharp satire. The middle was bogged down with too much partisan mud-slinging and empty-headed rhetoric. This show really, really needs to stop preaching, because the comedy stops dead every time it does, it doesn't serve the issues it attempts to address even remotely competently and it's just not entertaining to watch. Either mock idiocy and extremism on both sides without lecturing the audience or stop harping on politics. Good satire needs to be egalitarian, if they're going to call themselves "equal opportunity offenders", they need to live up to it.

Overall, it was a an okay episode and was something of a step in the right direction, but seemed to take two steps back.
