The Life & Times of Tim: The Complete First Season (DVD)
What happens when your girlfriend comes home before your hooker hasleft? 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 Budweiser advertising wunderkind Steve Dildarian.]]>
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

Tim is an office guy, gets into hijnx, Nick Kroll is a main character, Tim's Boss could be my favorite character. There is a priest with a drug, drinking, and prostitute problem. Oh and gambling addiction too.
Tim is often the scape goat or the patsy or the fall guy. However you want to say it. Lot of famous cameo voices throughout all 3 seasons.
I have a hard time finding solid, consistent humor. Most of the genre is dominated by outdated Adam Sandler pee in the pool jokes, Seth Rogan barf jokes, Workholics bathroom and morbid humor, and Seth McFarlane over the top.
Gone are the days of Peter Sellers. Until you buy this DVD. And the other two seasons.
this is not a review for the dvd, but for the show, will update if needed, but probably not
one of my most favorite shows. hbo has aired many of my absolute favorite, cant get out of my head shows: life and times of tim, six feet under, sex and the city. then they went and didnt renew tim. i dont have hbo anymore anyway, so i dont have hbo go, but i dont even think them hookers had it as an option to view on hbogo. anyway, this is one of the funniest, "wth" shows i've seen. the situations they come up with are funny enough, but the reactions and lines they wrote to support it just blow my mind. comedy writers like this amaze me. i hope these guys continue to work and provide people with their hilarity. steve dildarian and etc, not many people appreciated you, but you have a fan in me :)
