  1. IFC's new 10-episode, late-night original comedy Z Rock is effortlessly, genuinely hilarious.

    The absurdity of watching the band engage in an escalating feud with a rival trio of kid performers is genuinely chuckleworthy, and the series' rough edges seem well suited to its latenight IFC berth.
  3. There's definitely some amusing moments but the show will have limited appeal.
  4. Their TV show, which might make the band more famous than its music, is lightweight, sometimes flat and sometimes embarrassing, with none of the deadpan brilliance of "Flight of the Conchords" or the sophisticated sitcomedy of the late “The Chris Isaak Show.”

    The band is gold as far as kiddie parties go, but more like copper on the after-dark circuit. The same can be said for the concept vs. the execution here.

    The semi-improvised Z Rock has its moments, none of which can be described adequately here.

    Some amusing bits, but for every one of those, there are 10 misfires.

    Best Show on TV, if the networks allowed the content the show would be number 1.
