      This. Also seems like the last show that was allowed to take any meaningful shots at the left. Not to say it was a comedy gold mine though.

        It was literally every "lol HIPPIES XD" joke from King of the Hill and Beavis and Butt-Head. King of the Hill had much more more relevant jokes about "the left" that fit in the modern context.

          it's sad how everyone dogpiled on a half-hearted attempt at "we make fun of everybody" south park type humor (with maybe 2% of the edge), while south park.. gave in and started supporting the left and their mainstream narrative.

            South Park jumped the shark when Cartman was beaten by the PC Principal. That was the episode where they declared they lost the culture war and bent the knee.

              naw it was before that.
              they had one chance to call out the media circus of a couple elections ago, the fact that the people running the debates had openly disqualified any candidates who wouldn't clown around and dance for them, resulting in a democrat actor playing the part of a clownish strawman republican.. they could have commented on that, exposed it, gotten people to vote third party for the first time in history, but no. they just made an episode about hillary winning, then hastily rewrote it.

      While that's true, the show still isn't terribly funny. Though to be honest, I don't know how you would make a funny show about modern leftism, given how depressing it is to watch in action.

        I enjoyed it, granted it wasn’t Ha Ha funny, except with the dog scenes. It was very chuckle worthy of a show similar to king of the hill, not the same but similar. I really think if you re ran the show it would get more of a cult following similar to what happened when Zoomers found the original clone high.

        I'm guessing they were hoping for the nostalgia audience. Napoleon Dynamite was a fun movie, but it was really only popular for a certain age group of people for a certain period of time. They might quote it and have affinity for it, but I don't imagine many actually rewatch it, and I don't imagine many zoomers have bothered to watch it at all and only think about it when they make a "why did this movie make boomers piss and shit and cum in their pants???"

      Only thing I remember from this was the bit about the father making 1 ply tp rolls from a 2 ply roll

      This was both decently funny and also completely unneccesary and way, WAY too late.
      I remember a clip from TMZ where they talked a little with the one of the og actors and mentioned it, he just laughed and said it came 8 years too late.

      haha yes, it was actually amazing. Though I'm not sure if it really had legs, it might have only worked for 3-4 seasons.. but it definitely had at least a little potential. and the humor was on point.

      that one was also shockingly good.

      He's South African, the whole bit is they adopted an African child thinking the obvious and didn't realize the baby would be white. Then they just never changed course because they want him in touch with roots but don't actually know what African cultures are to boot.

      and best of all, they named him Ubuntu

        I like the black neighbor who is actually post-racial and doesn't understand why they're upset when they wanted and got an African and they're not secure enough to tell him the truth.

        I also like when they're listening to one of those lame NPR donor CDs of a news host singing Black spirituals and he's like "So I can't watch Buckwheat, a comedic genius, but this is okay?"

      I think he wanted to do the liberal version of king of the hill but in all honesty liberals are just fundamentally worse people because the views are entirely reaction based.

        yeah he was trying to depict at least one guy who genuinely cares, and how he's just clueless, but there's kinda more limits to what can be done with that. The best the show could turn into is.. well, kind of what KotH ended up being, where Hank is really the only genuine conservative around and everyone else is just a jerk. if uh, Mr. Goode (I forget his name) would have a series of conflicts with turbo militant reactionary liberals, and he was the evening-out factor.. that could work.

          Phil Hartman talked about it a bit in an interview on Tom Snyder where he said that when they would do political sketches on SNL they’d have all the fun in the world lampooning the republicans because they disagreed with them but when it came to democrats they would just end up making fun of the person because as “good liberals” they pretty much agreed with their policies. I think it’s the same here where it’s people who agree with what they’re saying so they can only exaggerate them rather than have a central person be the sounding board to discuss the issue. You’re right the show desperately needed a Hank to be someone who actually reacted to the things around him somewhat reasonably

            I'm not surprised about SNL's bias given that Norm MacDoland got fired for joking about OJ Simpson getting away with murder, because one of the bigwigs was friends with him. Like, your loyalty is admirable, maybe try being loyal to your employees.

              He was the follow to letterman in the 90s but I believe his career dates back to the 70s. Craig Ferguson tried to go back to his one on one style of talk show for a bit but it didn’t stick

                I’m not sure I just remember him through a few things, I’m not actually old enough to have watched him since I watched Conan at that time when they would’ve been competitors,

            You know, this got me thinking that the Goodes may have worked better as a supporting family rather than the main family. What we got ended up being the progressive equivalent of a KotH that focused on Dale Gribble and his family. Just replace the guns-nuttery and conspiracy theories with anti-racism and veganism

        I think the Goodes just aren't as relatable as the Hills. Everyone knows people like the ones we see on King of the Hill, but the ones on The Goode Family just seem way too outlandish unless you live in an extremely left-wing area.

        anon they are absolutely obligate carnivores, as sure as we are. They're just not the -extreme- obligate carnivores that -cats- are. where if they don't get meat, they will flat-out run out of energy. They can consume other food to get energy and shit, but they can't make their own proteins without animal food sources.

          Dogs and humans are obligate carnivores as we both need nutrients that we can acquire from eating other animals but cannot produce ourselves via herbivory. We are not hypercarnivores (animals whose diets consist of ≥70% meat), however, unlike wolves or cats.

            Hypercarnivore and obligate carnivore are different terms for the same exact thing. Humans and dogs are omnivores.

          Kinda, so as a one off gag yes that’s better, but this was a reoccurring gag, so it makes more sense to use a dog since they can live without meat not well but they can, while a cat will legit die.

    I didn't like how cartoony it was (like leaving dust clouds when running away) but I liked that it was the reverse King of the Hill. The point was how bullshit liberalism is and how not awakened anyone actually is. I mean, their adopted son is African but he's an Afrikaner and they're disappointed he isn't black but they say they don't see color. The NPR episode was awesome because they called them out for what they are: commercial radio that wouldn't exist if ratings mattered for them.

    It wasn't a bad show but it was on a bad network for animation (ABC.) When CC got the reruns over AS, I knew it was going to the comedy graveyard and yep, I was right.
