Fun Fact!

This show isn't any fun!

Perhaps earlier seasons of Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job! were decent, but season five is a comedy in name only because there is little laughter here.

As part of [adult swim] it is to be expected that not everything will be to everyone’s tastes. Most of Tim and Eric’s show, however, is quite vile and disgusting. From sketches about diarrhea dams to drinking pubic hair to jump start puberty, getting milk from men’s nipples and more (or perhaps I should say “less”).  It doesn’t help that everyone on the show, Tim and Eric and all of their players, are horrible actors.  Their performances ruin any chance of any joke being funny.

Occasionally their guests are funny.  Will Ferrell, John C. Reilly, Ben Stiller, Paul Rudd, Patrick Duffy, Jack McBrayer, Ted Danson and others make appearances, though most of the time they look as if they are on the show against their will, perhaps because they lost a bet or are being black mailed.

On the off chance you are a fan of the show, the DVD contains the 10 episodes of season cinco and a bunch of extras: extended scenes, outtakes, deleted scenes and more.

If I weren’t reviewing the DVD, I would have stopped after just one terrible episode, but I watched the whole season and I recommend that you should avoid my fate. I’ll be scrubbing the inside of brain with steel wool for days but I don’t think I’ll ever get some of these memories out.  They will haunt me until the end of my days. If I could build a time machine, I would use it to prevent myself from having ever see Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job! season five.
