This show has a few funny moments but it's mostly fucking terrible.

Like, worse than Family Guy terrible.

It's a major blight on the otherwise solid Adult Swim lineup.

The depression part is wicked cringy, but otherwise I love this one.

^that's good

I know there were some Peanuts parodies on here that got some kind of strong reaction out of me but I don't remember if they were negative or positive

Yeah that's a good one, a few of the skits from the earlier episodes were funny, like this one.



That's one example where the dark humor pays off, but like Family Guy this show is just needlessly mean-spirited most of the time, it's the most lazy kind of shock humor without any punchline to it at all, shit like this.

whoa, this is actually pretty great:


I mean it does kind of perpetuate the mythos of the tv shows over the comics, but that's totally understandable. it really works well on its own terms.

I've laughed at everything in this thread so far. Even the Dora one is pretty funny. That groan on the couch is hysterical. And what she does to the map. :lol: Just because it doesn't have a punchline doesn't mean it isn't funny.

Ok the Dora one started out funny, like the groan and the whole map bit but I thought most of the jokes after that were terrible, especially the "Swiper fucks an ugly chick" joke and the "Boots goes on a rampage and gets shot cuz that's a thing that actually happened" joke, and the ending just came off as disturbing and not funny at all.

Ok that crabs joke was hilarious, didn't care for the rest of that sketch though.

Maybe I'm being too hard on this show, it's just really hit and miss for me and the newer episodes have gotten progressively worse.
