    Now, I thought Dads showed promise, it wasn't as tasteless as they made it out to be. But I like raunchy off color humor.

    Wouldn't...

    Why do they always get a "walky" actor to pretend to be in a wheelchair? Why don't they ever get a "wheelie" actor to pretend to walk?

    I tried pretending to walk before, you'd hafta use stop motion and splice between the falling.

    I thought Brooklyn 9-9 was pretty good. It comes from the Parks and Rec team so it's got a good pedigree as well.

    So you thought the "secret tie" and speed-o bit were good writing?

    I like Parks and Rec, this was just stupid.

    Didn't laugh at the secret tie, but did at the manscaping comment. Also laughed at the speedo bit at the end, so good writing or not, I thought it was funny.

    You didn't enjoy M*A*S*H then either? It's an old trope.

    Love MASH, this is no MASH.

    Hawkeye may have disobeyed orders etc, but he was never the fool in the throne room.

    Definitely not MASH, but you and I saw Hawkeye differently then. Depending on whose throne room it was, he could definitely be the fool. How many episodes did a superior officer want to string him up until they saw he was the best at what he did?

    Ok, he was never the fool, just to be the fool. from day one we knew how Hawkeye felt about where he was, the war. There was a reason behind his actions.
    This character is just a "look at me be a spaz" character, most likely due to the fact that Samberg has one character and no depth as an actor.

    In any case, the disrespectful clown that gets away with it because they are very good at their job isn't a huge stretch in television regardless of their motivation.

    Dads was horrible. That should be first to go, no question. Did not crack a smile at anything. Actually maybe there was one funny thing. But I've forgotten what it was.

    99 was not bad. It started out rocky but it picked up steam and that's a good sign.

    And this is why they actually have ratings. One man's ceiling is another man's floor.

    My wife & I just watched both. B99 was pretty funny, but neither of us are Andy Samberg fans. He's just too goofy silly. But the show is so funny, we'll stick with it.

    Dads? The unfunniest show I've ever seen. Forget the raunch, not an issue. It just wasn't funny. Ever. Ok, maybe a line or two. But the laugh track just kept roaring at lines that weren't even jokes, they were setup lines! The straight lines were said, and the laugh track blasted away.:thumbsdown::thumbsdown:

    The reviews for Dads have been abysmal, 0% on Rotten Tomatoes. On the other hand, B99 has received very good reviews, 90% on RT. Hard to lump those two shows together.

    The laugh track was so horrible, I started to wonder if they were deliberately mocking shows with horrible laugh tracks. But probably not...

    Other than that, I went into it with no expectations other than it being a pointless FOX style sitcom, which is all it was. And as such, it kinda amused me.

    And I think it's the kind of show FOX will keep around regardless, so I suspect it will outlive others in this thread, despite its ratings...
