Worst Television Show that I have ever seen
I am sure there are worse television shows out there, but of the limited amount of television shows that I have seen, this one is the worst. The first reason is obvious, and can be seen by any person who is not tickled by boring, predictable, slapstick humour, or by any person who does not laugh at psychotic ducks. The show has made laugh out loud once. I forget the circumstances, but it did. I hate to admit it, but it must be said. The second reason is because of its racism and negative stereotypes. African-Americans are portrayed as being, cool, slang spewing, hip-hop lovers. White people are portrayed as being nerdy, ugly people who are "wannabes". They try to be cool, or should I say "off the hizzy" (or however you say it), but ultimately are treated like crap by others. Asian-Americans are portrayed as being people who are obsessed with working hard, and learning karate. Latin-Americans are portrayed as being rich and full of themselves. I live in Toronto, which I think is a fairly multi-cultural city, and I do not know ANYONE who talks using slang terms like "off the heezy" or "in the hiz-ouse", black or white. Also portrayed by negative stereotypes are males, and fathers in particular. The fathers are portrayed as being incompetent, self- centred idiots who watch football all the time they can, and have zero respect from there children. Other males in the show are portrayed as being sex-maniacs, wimps, or arrogant losers who think they can beat anyone at anything (but always end up losing to females). The one homosexual character is portrayed as a loser who has been excluded by everyone, except the girls who use him as a fashion designer, and treat him like crap anyway. I probably would not be so annoyed/angry if this show was not a kids show. i once watched the show with my sister, and she said "I never knew that I was supposed to be wearing glasses". I also would not be as annoyed/angry if they put in some new characters who actually WEREN'T obsessed with hip-hop, or had some Asian-American who hung was "cool". This is the worst show I have ever seen.
