    This show cuts clean with a razor sharp dark and satirical humor that's like a diamond bladed scalpel being used to slit someone's throat a humor most Americans don't find funny but, this show has done just that for Americans made this dark humor so funny that it makes you feel like it's impaling you with a shiv.

  1. Not only is it funnier than its lead-in, it’s improved on its impressive (and sadly truncated) first season on ABC.
  2. The droll office comedy Better Off Ted could have quickly turned into a one-joke bore. Instead, it sails into its second season tonight as one of the best sitcoms on television.
  3. With this cast, and the writing of Fresco and company, I expect Ted season two to again hit the heights of that first season. But these two episodes are a reminder of how hard it is to pull that off.
