| A new and refreshing level of demented lunacy
It's still hard to imagine how a network that serves up children's cartoons could ever spew a show like this out into a broadcast stream that has a potential global reach of many millions.

Yes, the Lynchian comparisons are inevitable. It's also like if the folks at Everything Is Terrible conjured up a southern Gothic comedy show. (Watch the last episode to see what I mean. Also the found footage stuff at the beginnings.) It's understandable that many people will be put off, since this is dredged up from the murkiest depths of the black comedy pond. Much of the humor consists of incest, bigotry, and all manner of violence and abuse. So this is not a show for people who get all huffy and puffy about...well, anything.

But much of the filthy stuff is just background filler; in normal people sitcoms, this would be akin to guys being bad at putting together IKEA furniture or working out too hard and straining themselves. It's really more about the world they built - and the meatier parts of the show showcase some of the most demented, bizarre and downright inventive ideas in surrealist comedy.

For example, the town's doctor discovers that a life support machine is malfunctioning, and discovers that it was made in China. He opens it up and finds a young Asian boy inside, cranking a wheel. Now, many shows would have been content to leave it at that. However, the doctor naturally decides to take advantage of the situation and starts giving the boy various chores to complete - from inside the cramped life support unit. The extra strain makes the child very sick, and since the doctor has (of course) fallen in love with his young Asian slave, he decides to stick the life support tube inside the machine, into the boy's mouth. As a result, the child is able to live on inside the box for ten generations, cranking his own life support wheel in perpetuity.

What, you'd rather have dicks and poop and farts and all that stuff? Well don't you worry, they'll have you covered. Kristen Shcaal - replaced by veteran skank channeler Amy Sedaris in the 2nd and 3rd seasons - plays perhaps the most wickedly filthy, wanton, and downright disgusting prostitute in (fictional) media. So there's something for everyone.

Highly recommended if you have the capacity to appreciate this sort of thing.
