Raunchy and in Bad Taste for the Sake of it.
This is honestly the worst show I've seen on Comedy Central. Another reviewer on IMDb called this show "The Nutshack for black people." He's not wrong.
After watching the first few episodes of this show, I went online and checked the reviews. The few I found said this show was pretty average. While they thought the first episodes weren't very funny, they compared it to South Park and The Simpsons, which both didn't become great until a season or two in.
Once you see the first few minutes of any episode, you will realize why that comparison doesn't work.
I do agree that The Simpsons and South Park didn't hit their stride until the second season. The classic episodes of The Simpsons started being made in the second season, and South Park in season four. But there's one big difference between this show and those two.
SOUTH PARK AND THE SIMPSONS WERE ACTUALLY GOOD.
Both shows were funny from the start, and even if you don't think that, you really can't deny that they were both groundbreaking (The Simpsons for being one of the first adult animated shows, and South Park for saying the B word).
This show isn't funny. None of the jokes are particularly clever, relying mostly on stereotype humor and saying the N word. It's raunchy and in bad taste for the sake of being raunchy and in bad taste. It's closer comparison, South Park, usually uses its raunchiness to illustrate a point. South Park is satirical. This show is not.
Another reason I think this is the closer comparison to South Park is that it's art style is purposefully bad. But unlike South Park, which uses it's art style to have a unique, stop-animation feel and to get episodes out quicker, this show looks like it was drawn by a toddler with sharpies and is so dated that it could be put out anytime within the next thirty years and still be equally as timely.
This show might have been ground-breaking if it had come out before South Park, but it still probably wouldn't have the same appeal. I will say that you don't need to be original or groundbreaking to be good, you just need to be funny.
And that's the problem. It's just not funny.
