    Martin is not amusing. He finds himself much funnier than he is, and that is insanely bothersome to me.

    I thought the show was boring. Martin was not funny and the show seemed to just drag on.

  1. As is the case with nearly all sketch-comedy series, this one from "The Daily Show" alum Demetri Martin--and produced by Jon Stewart's Busboy Prods.--is very much hit-and-miss, with the misses outnumbering the hits in the first installment and the hits predominating in the second.
  2. Important Things is inconsistent--the sketches are on the whole less funny than the stand-up, but they have their moments, and the show is on the whole worthwhile.

    You'll find an important (and rare) thing: an off-kilter show that's at once smart, outlandish and very funny.
