    It's a strange show and I'm sure some people won't find it funny at all. But if you have just enough of a cracked sense of humor, it's worth giving Jon Benjamin Has a Van a try.

    These guys come up with twisted shorts and one longer and even more twisted feature per episode, some of them actual man-on-the-street interviews, some of them scripted, and most of them funny.

    Overall, though, Jon Benjamin Has a Van isn't the next obvious step for Benjamin conquering TV comedy. It's a misfire that mainly made me sad we won't have full new seasons of either "Archer" or "Bob's Burgers" until 2012.

    It is filled with weak attempts at sketch comedy, resulting in a few funny moments here and there, but not enough.

    Standout installment not only benefits from guest appearances by Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim but also channels their uniquely off-kilter humor in a trippy sci-fi storyline that sustains its length. Too often, though, Van lends credence to the theory that TV sketch comedy's primary usefulness isn't in appointment viewing, but in feeding the voracious appetite for viral videos online.

    Honestly, This is a seriously underrated show by critics. It's hilarious, The first episode alone had me laughting my a$$ off. Check it out on Netflix, It's more then worth the watch. I would highly recommend it and I will be tuning in should they make a second season. Expand
