I love this show.
The plot to start with is very original. Then secondly, I LOVE the COLOR IN PARTICULAR. This is likely the only show that backed away from the technicolor and 3D and created its own color scheme. I also, liked to see Andy and Kevin fight. I remember one episode when Andy was beating Kevin with the picket stick becuase he felt he did something wrong. That was my favorite episode. I don't know what channel this show was on, but whoever cancelled it, they're cruel, evil, and just ignorant. There's nothing wrong with this show other than it wasnt family friendly, but hey, sure was funny as ever.moreless
A 24 year old man, Andy, who draws cartoon comics, but he appears to be lazy, in his apartment. Andy is told by his pairents that his nerdy little brother, Kevin, will be living with him.
Why did this show had to end? I actully like Mission Hill.
Mission Hill is about a 24 year old man, Andy, who draws cartoon comics, but he appears to be lazy, in his apartment. Other people live in the appartment like: a female who may be considred a hippie, two homosexual men who use to live in Los Angelus, a artistic father who has a wife and a newborn child, and etc. Andy is told by his pairents that his nerdy little brother, Kevin, will be living with him. Andy first couldn't handle Kevin but he soon got use to his little brother living with him...I think.
I liked how in some episodes, you got to learn something you havn't knew about a character. One example is learning that there was a never before shown season of "The Real World" in Mission Hill.
I can't really explane more on why I like Mission Hill, just go and watch it on [Adult Swim] or something.moreless
Annoying douchebags that aren't funny live together in Mission Hill.
What are you people talking about? I have given this show tons of chances, and I still think it really sucks. The character are all unlikeable and annoying, the plotlines are unoriginal, and the script has yet to make me laugh. I have watched several epiodes of this on adult swim in attempt to understand why everyone loves it so much, but I still don't get it. This show is trying too hard to be funny, and it fails miserably. The animation is interesting and it's better than an infomercial at 3 am when I can't sleep, but seriously, people, what is the deal?moreless
In the history of Prime-Time animated shows there are some that endear us with their characters & the myriad situations they get themselves in (e.g. The Simpsons & South Park) & then there are the shows that are so ghastly, one wonders just how they managed to appear on American TV at all.
Mission Hill just happens to be a prime example of a ghastly cartoon.
Just what is so funny about a melange of archetypical sitcom characters who are so repellent such as a burnt-out "flower child", a gay couple(how original) & of course some bespectacled geek who belongs in a circus side show who also happens to be the young brother of the main character, a slacker.
I am certain that the ONLY people who enjoy this effete cartoon are those who watch Kevin Smith films under the influence of illegal narcotics, no doubt.moreless
Bring it back one of the greatest shows that was animated. Why was it ever cancelled. I loved that show.
A great show has cutting edge comedy i couldn't stop laughing during the pilot. I don't get why it was cancelled i wish they would bring it back. I would start a petition if i knew how. That's how much i like the show. It's up there with futurama and family guy in funny. If it would of done more episodes and seasons people would have watched it more the only did 13 real episodes. I wish they would do a movie for this show it would be great. They could cast some really cool people. Overall it is a great show.moreless
A fantastic, funny show. Shouldn't have been taken off the air.
Combining blown-out-of-proportion, stereotypical characters, a wacky set up, and a unique visual art style consisting of bright colors, Mission Hill was one of the freshest ideas ever to make it on to television. Andy French, college graduate (Did somebody say Borchmore?!?), desires to be a cartoonist for the rest of his life. Unfortunately, his work doesn't seem to be going anywhere. He shares an apartment with his college bud Jim, and the strange, almost new-age hippie, Posey. All is normal until Andy's parents decide to move away and leave their younger son Kevin, to live with his older brother in the big city.
Kevin, being totally nerdy and uncool proceeds to "ruin" Andy's life.
Well, so maybe the show doesn't have the most interesting concept behind it. It's what else it throws at you to make it comedy gold. Sharing their apartment building are two gay lovers, as well a successful artist who is married to an "activist" of sorts.
Alright, so that still doesn't seem like it's very awesome. And that's why this show is so great. The vibe and attitude of this show is almost beyond words. The events that take place in each are bizarre, to say the least.
Here's a sandbox of things that take place in this series.
A man walks around with knife stuck in his head for almost an entire episode.
A store is nearly burned to the ground because somebody in the bathroom was "manipulating" themselves.
A danceclub is formed in a room that's only big enough to hold a couple of meters.
Probably doesn't make much sense does it? If it all intrigued or confused, give this show a try. Trust me, it just works.moreless
A unique show that followed the life of a mid 20s slacker in a hip city neighborhood. Great setting, good writing, and the best producers from the Simpsons. Whats not to love?
God bless this show. One of the reasons I love it so much is because very few people know about it, and it (like undergrads) remains a cult favorite. It never blew up like Family Guy and Futurama. I'm not sure how good this show would have been if they did more seasons, but what they did make was very good. They had a very colorful cast of characters, and they created a cool setting. Andy is more than just a partying slacker; he does have aspirations and has moments where he reveals that he is a pretty good person. Kevin is dorky, awkward, obnoxious, but likable. Gus, Wally, Posey, and Jim all have large roles, and are all well though out characters. Oakley and Weinstein sculpted a vibrant, hip setting in Mission Hill. The animation was cool, and everything has a yellowish tint to it. Bittersweet that there's only one season, but this is a solid show that I would recommend to anyone with a sense of humor.moreless
andy french and his younger brother kevin live in the big city they are complete opposites
I like the show it isnt as good as ATHF but good they should play this show earlier not at like 2AM and I think it would be a good idea to bring it back and make new episodes alot better then some shows on adult swim Im talking about tim and erick it just has alot of good humor and plot lines the two main characters andy and kevin are funny together but some episodes are a swing and miss but most of the episodes like when kevin gets a ferraro that was cool everyone that is a fan of Adult Swim should check this outmoreless
For a 2 AM show, I guess it works.
This show is really nothing special. The only reason I watch it is because I'm an insomniac who needs something to do at 2 in the morning. I do laugh a few times at each episode, but I don't crack up or anything like that. I can understand why it didn't last long, being on the WB. Also, animated comedies like The Simpsons, King of the Hill, and South Park were dominating at the time. Now about the show, I feel sorry for Andy. Kevin is such a dork, and it's ridiculous that his parents forced Andy to let Kevin move in. Andy is a grown man, and he just let his parents move Kevin in his apartment. For a 2 AM show, it's pretty good. Otherwise, there are many better animated comedies out there.moreless
A great show that got canceled way before its time.
This is one of the many shows that I feel got canceled before it needed to be. This is a good adult themed cartoon that I really connected to. Andy reminds me of me and Kevin is exactly like my brother so it was pretty easy to follow. It had alot of interesting characters in it. Andy was of course mine. Recently adult swim started airing mission hill on Sundays so I am pretty happy about that. But if I had the choice to bring back any show I wanted it would be this one. Its a great show that needs to be brought back.moreless
