Review this tv show
Oct 24, 2013I've been a big fan of this show, and absolutely love seasons 1-4. I've watched them over countless times.
I have to say though, season 5 has been just awful in comparison. I haven't really laughed yet. The amount of "Andre is gay" jokes becomes excessive, and honestly desperate at times.
Additionally, the end of the episodes have been notably anti-climactic. The show has a trademark where they make some kind of hilariously shocking joke and bring up the end credits (with the theme song) abruptly to end the show on a great note. They've always managed to do this well. The ends of each episode this season have been so uninteresting that I cringe when they try to do that now.
I keep watching each episode waiting for it to get good again, but it literally hasn't done that yet at all. The jokes are actually getting progressively worse, along with the writing in general. I love this show, so I'm going to keep watching, but I wish they'd step it up.… Expand
Some jokes land mildly on their feet, but creators Jeff Schaffer and Jackie Marcus Schaffer routinely allow potentially interesting punchlines to slip through their fingers unfulfilled.
