This review is from: Drawn Together - Season One (Uncensored) (DVD)
There are so many animated comedies out there and a lot of them seem to follow the formula laid down so brilliantly in 'The Simpsons'. It was high time somebody came along and shook up the ideas a little bit and presented us with something fresh and alternatively funny.
'Drawn Together' is not the sort of show you would watch with a refined aunt or grandmother. Its humour is crude, offensive, grotesque and incredibly funny.
Eight characters from the cartoon world are living together in a 'Big Brother' style reality show. Some times they get on, sometimes they kill each other and occasionally the producers throw in a twist to stir things up. It's a great parody of the state of reality TV shows today.
This first season boxset (one originally intended first episode is held back for season two due to some rather unfortunate timing with real-life events) is seven episodes of shocking comedy which doesn't fall down at any moment.
The wonderful thing about non-politically correct humour is its sense of irony and post-modernism. Anyone who becomes offended through watching it is obviously missing the point. As mentioned in one of the commentaries, the racism portrayed in the show is mocking stupidity about race.
This is a two disc set of great humour with a smattering of special features including some clips of other Comedy Central shows.
Each episode is complete and uncut and there are karaoke and singalong versions of the songs too.
Despite loving this series, I have only given the set four stars because it falls down in one department; the commentaries are headache inducing! It doesn't seem that anyone is there as a moderator and everyone shouting at each other at once is awful to listen to.
Apart from that... a wonderful purchase.
Bring on season two!
