  1. The show is often so gross, one is tempted to suggest that our local arts schools should start steering its graduates toward more meaningful fields--such as automotive mechanics or doggy waste disposal. But Blue is also frequently funny in a raunchy “American Pie” way.

    While it's nice that Spike is seeking to widen its narrow unscripted profile, by hewing so closely to its formula, the net has simply made this too-blue Mountain into a comedic molehill.

    Alas, it’s an amateurish take that feels more like a string of failed “Funny or Die’’ sketches than a fully developed series with distinct characters.
  4. Blue Mountain State, a bawdy comedy about a fictional college football powerhouse that had a sneak-peek showing on Monday, is dumb even by frat-boy standards.

    Too bad there isn't going to be a season4, BMS is one of the very best, hilarious series present.

    Too bad there isn't going to be a season4, BMS is one of the very best, hilarious series present.

    Pro's: - Makes me laugh outloud. Very few shows do.
    - Girls. Loads of them. None of them ugly.
    - Steroid-guys making fun of themselves, with some seriously good acting skills from Thad (didn't know it was possible)
    - Never a dull moment
    - It's about American Football, but you hardly notice it :) (that's a good thing)

    Cons:
    - The critics are either old and grumpy, or desperately lack testosteron.
    - No season4, so there will be nothing like this anymore :(

    Yes, it's kind of dumb, yes it might occasionally offend you, but the fact is it never lay down any pretence of being the next Breaking Bad,Yes, it's kind of dumb, yes it might occasionally offend you, but the fact is it never lay down any pretence of being the next Breaking Bad, so why should we expect it to be a seriously written show that appeals to dullards and critics? (that's not a jibe at BB by the way, that is also a brilliant program just in a very different way!) Ultimately its just extremely entertaining, the situations grow increasingly ridiculous as the seasons go on and this is how it should be. The main protagonists are made to be likeable, the comedy is brilliantly done, and it's as close as some people will get to living out college fantasies. Brilliant show and if you think otherwise you should probably put out a search warrant for your sense of humour! Expand

    Yes, it's raunchy. Yes, it is juvenile. However, it gave me some good belly laughs.

I enjoy fart jokes and cursing as much as the next guy. But there comes a point in time when pure idiocy should not be put to film. There is not one single moment of genuine comedy in this entire series. Replacing clever writing and humor with crass and crude gags does not constitute a "show." There is a certain brand of stupid that comes with this show. The fact that multiple people get writing credit on this show is a tragedy in and of itself. Not to mention the sub-par acting. It's a shame that the American public grants shows like this screen time. And because of its popularity, there is now going to be a movie. Hoorah Expand
