  1. The Life & Times of Tim--is flat-out brilliant and easily one of the funniest newcomers to television.
  2. Reviewed by: Troy Patterson
    The show gets under the skin, somehow, with its loose Web-clip vibe and looser philosophy of life.

    The Life & Times of Tim, their new, offbeat, animated series, is one that works like crazy--and no, it doesn't hurt to be crazy to love this show.
  4. Reviewed by: James Poniewozik
    The opening episodes are uneven but show a lot of potential.
  5. I didn't find much of it funny, but on a kind of purely analytical level I can see how the jokes are supposed to work, and might well work on some.
  6. 40
    This is sporadically funny, but Tim is too slight -- the back-to-back episodes are only 10 to 12 minutes long -- and relies way too much on the supposed shock value of cartoon characters uttering four-letter words to be consistently entertaining.
  7. 10
    The Life & Times of Tim isn't even as well written as that show, and it's far more amateurish and deeply, alarmingly stupid to boot.

    this show introduces a new kind of humor not seen to tv in a while, and succeeds beautifully. Tim's dry humor is hilarious and although different from family guy, the simpsons, or south park, is still just as funny, or even more so. Tim is a likeable character who is extremely nice, but has horribly poor judgement; which can land him in some very bad, and hilarious, situations. 10/10 Expand

    One of the best shows on TV right now. A mix between The Office and a little Family Guy.

    Refreshing alternative to Adult Swim shows, brilliantly written comedy that makes you cringe at times due to the sheer absurdity of the situations.

    The animation is unimaginative and lifeless. the stories were just boring.
