Great addition to prime time animation.
9 May 2012 | by zachbernheiselSee all my reviews

Dan Vs. is a very good show. It is better than anything Seth MacFarlane could come up with. Seriously, Family Guy is a has-been, American Dad! is a never-was, and The Cleveland Show is just plain pathetic/racist. Dan Vs. reminds me of the great turn of the century animated series. This includes Duckman, Dr. Katz, early Family Guy, Dilbert, Mission Hill, Father of the Pride, Pinky and the Brain, The Critic, Stressed Eric, Clerks, Home Movies, Game Over, The Oblongs, Baby Blues, etc. It is curious that it is on The HUB, which mainly targets children. I guess it is one of those shows like Eeerie, Indiana. They appear to be kids shows, but if you watch it, you will know they are definitely not. Curtis Armstrong is a star on the rise, and Dave Foley and Paget Brewster are already household names. There is plenty of dark humor, as well as subtle socio-political commentary. Mandel and Pearson obviously know their stuff. Great job guys!
