    The animated comedy, which premieres on HBO tomorrow at 11 after Little Britain USA, is unnecessarily slow and slack.
  2. 30
    The animation is rudimentary and the jokes aren’t much better.
  3. 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.

    As hilarious as it is unknown. I was lucky enough to discover this hidden gem early on in season 1 & I've been hooked ever since. Tim is a guy you root for even though you know he is going to screw up at every possible turn. The beauty of the show is that it airs 2 15 minute episodes instead of 1 30 minute episode -- this essentially prevents them from dragging things out or needing filler. If you like Todd Margaret or The Office (the real one on the BBC, not the garbage American knock-off), Tim is a MUST WATCH show. Full Review »
