Tim and Eric's Awesome Show Great Job has most consistently elicited out loud fits of laughter from me when compared to the rest of the Adult Swim line-up. The others that I watch/care about have been a bit of let down in spots.

I love the Venture Bros., but this season was pretty hit or miss. I'm sure it'll all come together in the end and I do agree it's a pretty smart program when compared to all the other crap out there. I got faith in those guys. But some of those episodes suuuuuuuuuuuuuucked.

Now, I love me some Metal in my old age. But Metalocalypse is just plain painting itself into a corner. The recent songs have been ho-hum and all this world domination backplot stuff is getting stupid. And it may seem dumb, but I miss seeing the opening sequence in it's entirety before each episode. Need some plot? How about a simple friggin' tour for a plotline? Jeeze. Try harder.

Tim and Eric just seem to know what I like. Demented sound clips, ridiculous editing, after school special songs, highlighting the piss poor production of public access tv, and lots of Bob and David spots make me a happy clam. This show is definitely hit or miss throughout the episode, I'll concede that. Some of the crap they do is only funny to them. But when a bit hits, which is a guarantee in every episode, it hits. All I need is 5 seconds of some weird sound clip that they destroy or repeat 30 times and I'm sold. Just thinking about it later brings a smile to my face. Maybe I'm just a simpleton. I've embedded the best intro bit they've done thus far and the undeniable genius that is Pussy Doodles. Yeah.

They are definitely idiotic. But funny. The shrimp and wine thing last week was ridiculous. SHRIMPEEE! My favorite was the cheating wife and the dude with the crappy mullet. Classic.

have you watched the commercials they've made for absolut?

Rick Smith said...

Alright. I think that's my new favorite thing. EVAR.

One of my favorite Tim and Eric bits was a commercial with Ed Begley Jr. for a cell phone that can only be used for one outgoing call. The best was the soothing jell that the user has to put on their face due to the fact that the phone burns your skin. Also, I'm partial to the B'ougar commercial, the cougar - bear hybrid!

The burning face phone thing was quite dope. And the Beaver Boys. Hearing the good ol' Mac voice from simple text say "Beaver Bounce" makes my day.

I... uh... don't get it.

Is that really a surprise?

Peeing out your dining room/hot sister-in-law's bedroom window has definitely bumped your bumpkin factor to Threeve.

Jealous much?

I'm livin' the life!
