Soul & The Demons !
30 June 2010 | by elshikh4See all my reviews

The strangest thing happened while watching this. Believe it or not, I was predicting all the lines before saying them, preceding the cast 2 seconds earlier. In fact, I could predict everything in here. Maybe I'm a psychic? Or maybe I just watched too many easy shows!!

Yes, this is a well meaning show, however completely tacky. The characters are so not new. The storytelling is deadly the same, as if we have dumb minds, or no minds at all. Even the house of the lead character assures that the American houses in the American sitcoms look the same since 50 years!

Now this show got me admiring another 2 sitcoms I do hate. One is (Grounded for Life) simply because it had a flashback technique to narrate. And the other is (Everybody Hates Chris) for using a voice-over. As you see, "different", even slightly, got nothing to do with this show!

I want to ask the laughing audience how do you sleep at night?! With shows like this, the recurrent, outrageously fake, laughing makes me feel how this is an indirect nasty propaganda for lying! Yes, it is like so exposed subliminal message to transform you into a perfect idiot who lies on himself, saying all the time as a robot: "This is funny. This is good" while it's obviously NOT! And they said that only the communist nations used media to brainwash their people?!, well, at least communism is gone, but not these systems!

Save the cute (Alexa Vega), the cast is what hell will be in the other life. (David Cassidy)??? What ever happened to his face?!! This is freaky. He looks like someone wearing a Halloween mask. The rest is killing me. The worst thing I can say about them is that they all look like creatures that came from usual, foolish, sitcom (How Horrible!!).

I wanted something NOT TRITE, to find a factor, rather an antique shop, for all the sitcoms' triteness. It got me imagining a sitcom by the title of (Soul & The Demons), where a kind guy named (Soul) gets to live with an evil family named (The Demons) that forces him to watch American sitcoms!

P.S: I wish from God to have a sitcom where the door of the house is on the right side of the screen, not the left. Just to feel a change!
