Robot Chicken, Not Squidbillies

Under advisement of a life long friend, I started watching Robot Chicken while riding the stationary bike, 2 episodes at a time. I've found it remarkably creative and amusing. My old friend also recommended Squidbillies... but after watching, or rather, wasting 30 minutes of my life today, seeing the very first episode where they explained Early Cuyler's origins, and a second episode where he is hired as the Dan Halen CEO, I found it at best slightly funny, and at worst, a chaotic mis-match that could only be written on while high and intoxicated. If a character gets killed, like the sheriff did in the origins episode, he should remain dead, for at least the episode. I know the Simpsons bring back dead characters in new episodes often, and it's funny - but killing off a character 2 or 3 times in the same episode, I don't truck with that.

Robot Chicken has a catchy theme song.. buck buck buck..... as the credits roll too! =)


  1. I have fun with Robot Chicken when my attention span is short. And you're right about Squidbillies...they almost try too hard.

    Aqua Teen Hunger Force, on the other hand, is often brilliant. Character-based humor at its best.
