Original, Hilarious, Cerebral...Doomed
9 November 2013 | by hddu10-819-37458See all my reviews

One of the most creative sit-coms in existence; a cross-between the Wonder Years, Malcolm in the Middle and Family Guy (did you think Seth was in any way original with the cut-aways? Nah...he's just hoping we didn't notice). Not having a laugh-track and the dead-pan delivery of the characters seemed to underscore the comedic writing; sometimes the humor built and built until one final punch-line just made one bust-out hysterically. An example being one episode where Scott (Toby MacGuire) is in art-class fantasizing he's a sultan being showered with gifts of crafts from his "popular" class-mates, who now happen to now be subservient to his will; as the gifts get more and more outlandish and the entire situation builds to a point where we're expecting some huge ending; the entire sketch stops with us realizing it was all a feverish hallucination to his reaction to the clay. The unfortunate reality is, at in an era when toilet-humor and race-baiting was the norm for success on FOX, this show never had a chance for success-- and we as a society are all the poorer for it.
