  1. Outrageous, bizarre, effortlessly hip and unsubtle in magically edgy ways.
  2. Alternately goofy and smartly satirical, ["Freak Show"] may be the best companion to "South Park" Comedy Central has come up with yet.
  3. There’s plenty to laugh at here.
  4. This superhero spoof's odd humor manages to distract from the shudders... but just barely. [6 Oct 2006, p.63]

    "Freak Show" aspires to be both infantile and yet politically and socially astute, and it falls short on the latter. The satire doesn't quite hit its marks.

    Each episode has been better than the next. The 2-part season finale was easily the best and has proven itself to be one of the funniest shows on tv today. Full Review »
