And after a Family Guy that took itself too seriously, we run into the opposite end of the spectrum. This week's Cleveland Show just felt boring.
Surprisingly, I was more into the B-plot, just because the Twilight series is ALWAYS ripe for the mocking. It wasn't great, but I was into it more than Cleveland and Rallo scare-rivalry...even if I got a laugh out of Cleveland jamming himself in the dickens.
What a crappy night for animated comedy. Can't wait for American Dad to come back next week.
Donna: See you in the morning! If you survive...BOOHWAHWAHWAHWAHWAHWA! Junior: Yeah, then maybe we'll all get brunch...BOOHWAHWAHWAHWAHWAHWA!
Nobody* said anything about this show on twitter. I think that sums up this overall show quite well. It’s settled into the ‘inoffensive enough’ bracket. The show is into its third season so conceivably inoffensive enough is probably going to be about the peak achieved.
Rallo and Kendra are my favourite characters from this show so I’m always looking to them for my chuckles. This episode didn’t have Kendra and the Rallo story was a bit forced, so I was much surprised that the Roberta story ended up providing my funny.
I’m always up for piss taking of the Twilight franchise and the sexual vampire fascination in general. This is because I don’t understand and feel threatened by what the young people are so passionate about, and openly mocking it makes me feel better about my own life’s passions and that me and my friends used to make Bill and Ted guitar noises in public when we were about the same age.
* When I say nobody, what I actually mean is nobody that I’m actually following. I’m sure there were people somewhere tweeting something about it. It may have even been a trending topic at one point. I make myself avoid browsing trending topics as the majority of tweets about such tend to make me weep for the future of humanity, not to mention making my brain hurt. I wonder how far away we are from a cause of death being officially described as brain aneurism brought on by prolonged exposure to YouTube comments.
I'd think the "locked up in Arkham" idea would be the way to go. Even having a shot inside Arkham of a shadowy figure sitting on the floor with a straight jacket on and "Joker" on the door would be a good enough callback scene.
