Storyline

Da Genius Show
27 May 2003 | by LoudMouthSee all my reviews

This guy is brilliant. The show is absolutely hysterical and keeps your attention the entire time. I have seen a variety of TV shows that were ahead of it's time and this is one of them. I wouldn't doubt it if HBO kept this around for another few years before dumping it. Shows such as, "Mr. Show," and "The Ben Stiller Show," were just too much for TV in its era. The Ali G Show is the same, it's ahead of it's time. It takes total normality, throws in politics and to top it all of, adds a twisted sense of wannabe urban culture. Ali G is an original idea that is making it in the underground culture so far and hopefully spreading to mainstream society. The only problem I see is that it may be too much for standard America to handle. Some uptights might get offended seeing a guy sporting a yellow jumpsuit interviewing Newt Gingrich and obviously making him look like a fool. But who cares, it's entertainment, take it for the value or just plain laughter. And always remember, "It's not T.V., it's HBO."
