Editorial Reviews

Creator Steve Dildarian animates HBO's The Life & Times of Tim in the flat, simplistic style of Beavis & Butthead, but that's where the comparison ends. Tim (Dildarian) may act like a child, but he's still an adult. The deadpan New Yorker lives with his exasperated girlfriend, Amy (M.J. Otto), and works at Omnicorp with the manly Rodney (Matt Johnson), the droll Stu (Nick Kroll), and the unnamed Boss (Peter Giles). In the pilot, Amy and her parents catch Tim with a hooker--having a conversation. When he refuses to pay for services non-rendered, Debbie (Bob Morrow) gives her pimp a call, but Tim outsmarts the guy by playing dumb. That unique combination of idiocy and quick wits distinguishes the rest of the 10 episodes, which walk the line between clever and crude (and they're definitely not for kids). During the first season, Tim lies to protect Rodney's rowdy rep, calls a baby a name, gropes a grandmother, insults an old codger, and sneaks into a deaf coworker's birthday party for the free cake.

Much like Curb Your Enthusiasm, Dildarian takes aim at political correctness run amok, except Tim's every problem begins with his inability to decline the most inane requests, whereas Larry David is more like a bull in a china shop. The good news: The Life & Times of Tim is just as funny. The bad news: the humor might make you feel queasy. (There's a reason Dildarian chose "I'll Never Get Out of This World Alive" as the show's theme song.) Guest voices include Cheri Oteri as the super's daughter, Jeff Garlin as Stu's dad, and Phylicia Rashad as the Boss's wife, while the bonus feature adds 10 promotional shorts. --Kathleen C. Fennessy

Product Description

What happens when your girlfriend comes home before your hooker has left? How do you convince the police you weren't really raped by a bum during a bachelor's party? What do you do when a priest asks you to object to a wedding, as a prank? What happens when your boss orders you to change your ethnicity in order to meet his corporate quotas? Meet Tim: an ordinary guy who makes a habit out of misunderstanding in The Life & Times of Tim a hilarious, new, adult animated series from HBO.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant December 11, 2008
This could be the funniest show on TV. I would love to know how they create this show. Do they start with "endpoints" (crazy scenarios) and figure out how Tim would wind up in them in the first place? Or do they say, "What if Tim fought an old man?" and go from there. Either way, this is a freaking hysterical show,

5.0 out of 5 stars Love Tim! March 11, 2010
By kjcheek
Life and Times of Tim is one funny show. Not much to report DVD wise since it's a crudely drawn animated show but the discs are layed out nice with 10 mini episodes apiece. Video is clean and the audio sounds great. There are 10 short scenes featured as extras. I would have liked to seen a behind the scenes bonus...sort of a "making of" scenario but that's OK. It's still worth the price. Looking forward to Season 2.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must have!!!! August 4, 2009
This is the funniest shows on TV... Tim always gets himself in trouble... The best part is seeing him have an answer for everything... I've been waiting for the dvd to come out for months... HBO keeps pushing it back... anyone know why?.. and when does season 2 start?

5.0 out of 5 stars *More* Tim! Funniest Show On HBO! March 3, 2010
THE LIFE AND TIMES OF TIM: FIRST SEASON DVD is a must have for fans of shows like Seinfeld - Seasons 1 & 2 and South Park - The Complete Second Season where the humor is satirical and pokes fun at everything.

Tim is a New Yorker who is cool without even knowing it. He gets himself into these crazy, awkward situations and yet he manages to stay calm and collected. He's surrounded by equally funny characters like his best friend and co-worker "Stu," who's only aim in life is to score with girls, though they don't want him, and eat ice cream cake, and "Debbie," the local chain-smoking hooker who gives Tim advice on everything from relationships to whatever. And she shows up wearing the most inappropriate outfits like a bikini in church that will keep you rolling in stitches.

If you haven't checked out the show yet, the second season just started on HBO as of this writing, you should. It's hilarious.

Extras on the DVD:

***10 BONUS SHORTS- combined run time 8:17-minutes-"selection" or "play-all" function
Here are some additional funny situations that Tim finds himself in.

5.0 out of 5 stars WHY DID THIS NOT COME OUT????? March 25, 2009
By Fat Kid
It was once listed as being released on 03/24/09. That date was removed from Amazon about 3 weeks ago. There was an insert for THE LIFE AND TIMES OF TIM saying that it would be released in MARCH 2009, inside of the SUMMER HEIGHTS HIGH (which is an awsome show) dvd. Does anyone know when this set is going to be released. Other sources also said that THE LIFE AND TIMES OF TIM would be released this week. (Entertainment Weekly had it as coming out this week and EW is a publication under the GIANT unmbrella that is TIME WARNER which also happens to own HBO on which THIS show plays) DOES ANYONE HAVE A FREAKIN' CLUE?

Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
to any supposed deities that inflames the passions of any religious fundamentalists. This show needs to be banned because watching it might be harmful to your health. You might ACTUALLY die laughing. They should have a Surgeon General sticker on the DVD stating " Watching Tim trying to weasel his way out of explaining how he won 10 grand at the race track because he bet on a horse that had a name that reminded him of his girlfriend Amy might cause you to stop breathing because it is funnier than anything you have ever seen in your life". But that warning will be on the second season DVD since that episode just aired recently. Hopefully you will live long enough after watching the first season to get the second season DVD. So go and enjoy the first season but have a defibrillator nearby. The thing about this show is that the delivery and the dialog is so well crafted and the comic timing is so brilliant that you are literally in awe before you just begin very loud uncontrollable laughter that will have your neighbors complaining.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hilarious and Sarcastic Fun!! March 4, 2010
The first time I saw this show on HBO I laughed so hard I almost cried! This is one of the funniest, most original, and just far out there cartoons on TV. If you enjoy randomness, sarcasm, and just overall hilarity you will love this show. See everything from Tim beating up an old man, to biting a woman on the elevator, or even getting raped by a bum (you just have to watch to find out!!). The low budget animation is just the icing on the cake because it fits Tim's personality perfectly!

Netflix it if you don't believe me, but I had to wait 11 months from the original release date to buy this on DVD and watched the pilot 20 times to try and satisfy my need for Life and Times of Tim. It was worth the wait!!

why did this not come out?
I was wondering the same thing. I ordered this for my brother's birthday back in March, then, when the date was pushed back, told him he'd have to wait until June. Now it's June and I have no idea when it will be released. I think I'm going to go ahead and cancel my order now, since there's no... Read More
