Look. I can see where bits of it are coming from. I can taste the Brad Neely in it. It just pales in comparison to China, Il. Part of me knows that I shouldn't be judging the show based on its predecessor, but even comparing this to other sketch shows (notably Robot Chicken), it just doesn't work right. Brad Neely's got real talent, you can feel that in how quickly he characterises and the novelty of his songs. I think this show isn't his jam. Part of the problem is perhaps that the sketches are so fleeting - there's no joke to draw back on - nothing self-referential. If I may say one thing, though - I took the advice of another review and pushed ahead with the show. The later episodes compared to the start are a vast improvement - I didn't feel like I was forcing myself to watch it, so to speak. Maybe it has some hope, if it's tailored to fit. I'm not sure. Perhaps a better solution would be to revive China, Il.
