Frisky Dingo - Season 1

I wonder if F.D.'s creators were into Black Adder, by the way, because the former's wonderfully rich insults and exclamations remind me of the latter's steady stream of what seemed liked hundreds of outrageous phrases (e.g., "He's as thick as whale omelet" or "Death and gloom stalk our land like two big stalking things"). In Frisky Dingo, phrases like "Well, I know how to not let my son run off in a pair of robo pants with a fist full of knives!!" and "ok disembodied GPS lady" and "Once again the mall has become my Waterloo" give the show a wonderful rhythm and spice missing from the vast majority of comedy.
The writing for the gruff single-minded Stan, the American corporate executive running the Crews Corporation for its reckless heir, Xander Crews, is another example of the kind of rich writing I find extremely entertaining in Frisky Dingo. Exasperated at Xander Crews for nearly ruining his corporation, Stan utters the line, "for 250 years, from slavery and smallpox blankets to soft-core porn and semiconductors, this corporation has always made a profit..." [close paraphrase] My stomach hurt from laughing. Stan's awkward time-consuming mangled attempt to sound like a superhero before flying off in pilfered rocket boots also was brilliant and fit his character well.
The show's use of violence is interesting. Some characters react the way a real human would -- with shock, numbness and terror (e.g., the initial reactions of Valerie, aka Val, and Sin's reaction to her lover Riley getting throttled by Killface).Read more ›
There are so many great lines in this I cannot even begin to quote.
The only odd detail I'd like to mention is the DVD menus are a little weird and it's not totally obvious there's a 2nd page of episodes. I watched the first bunch, then skipped along to the second disc without realizing I'd left out a bunch. Anyway, the narrative discrepancy and "Previously, on Frisky Dingo" summary clued me in.

Very funny. Very strange. Made by the same people that make Archer. Not as good as Archer but it would be very difficult for anyone to reach that high mark.Published 2 months ago by Steven M Smith
