Yeah, I don't know exactly how this one made it on; it was probably me. It's one of those titles that came up on instant so we started it and then we just wanted to be done with it before it got to the house. But it's twenty-four episodes which ended up being about twenty-one fillers of 20-minute gaps in the schedule.
Comedy is more personal than drama, and for me this became much more of an intellectual pursuit than a humorous one. There were too many places where I found myself appreciating the premise of a joke but not laughing at it. We got some good actual laughs when the jokes hit home, but those were too few and far between.
i wasn't really a fan of this when i was in high school. i was way more of a "kids in the hall" fan. i thought i would give it another shot because i guess there is room for two sketch comedy shows to be liked. there were some funny things, but there was way more unfunny things. my opinion has not changed. "kids in the hall" were and are funnier. i guess there just isn't room in my heart for two after all.
we both kind of just dug our heels in, gritted our teeth and watched them all refusing to give up. it's taken several months, but we did it. knock one more off the queue.
