Collect Only if You LOVE Weird Al!
on October 30, 2009
I am a huge Weird Al fan (from the 80s), but the reviews are right... These shows are horrible. In fact, I own it just as a novelty item.
What's wrong with it?
-Being a kid's show, it has nothing Weird Al fans can relate to. He himself admits dumbing down the skits in order to meet CBS broadcasting needs.
What's good about it?
Al's acting is superb, he really gave it his all, but the humor is seriously lacking. It's a weird (no pun intended) combination of Al's goofy persona mixed with education inducing skits. It's not easy to sit & watch through as an adult. All in all, the special feature - commentary is worth it! Al is kind enough to provide full length feedback for every single episode. Often times his commentary is more engaging than anything on screen.
Again- great novelty item for "Weird Al" Yankovic fans, but this is not UHF style humor.
(*Neat little note for wrestling fans- Macho Man Randy Savage guest starred in the last episode.)
