  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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

After all we all are imature in one way shape or form. Please keep the show going Expand

Shame on the critics. This show is simply hilarious, so apparently you guys are rating based on things everyone is missing. It isn't supposed to be smart. It only fails in the writing, and yet not completely - enough for me to give it 8,5/10. Only because the episodes are not linked and sometimes we feel the stories could be more "real". But that's what makes Blue Mountain State funny: reality is not needed. Impossible situations make the series delightful to watch and every episode makes me laugh hard. Every.

    So, nobody should take the decision of don't watch or watch the show based on the critic. It's not fair at all. The show is completely hilarious and that's what it proposes.
