  1. It's not surprising television writers would find television funny. It's gratifying they can make it funny for us, too.
  2. Neither as incisive as The Office, nor as over-the-top loony as Reno 911!, Dog ends up being too much bark and not quite enough bite. [9 Jun 2006, p.132]

    It's highly entertaining.

    There's no question that "Dog Bites Man"... scales heights of hilarity, more than one might have a right to expect. But there's a problem: Virtually all the characters are detestable in one way or another, and partly as a result, the show never seems grounded.
  5. Yes, this is more cover-your-eyes, cringe comedy -- the kind of funny that's hard to watch because it only works when innocent passersby, people like you, are manipulated and humiliated on camera.

    Improv techniques aside, I'd just settle for a funny script.

    This disappointing new series operates by one rule alone: When all else fails, refer to genitalia.
