    we (the fans) need more clone high we don't care if it's adult swim, teletoon, or comedy we just need more.
  • Historical Accuracy!

    I stumbled upon Clone High recently after hearing tidbits about it from fans of Scrubs and random interviews by the directors of Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs (Whom created the show). So I found the pilot online and literally almost hurt myself laughing.



    Rarely do comedies contain such clever hybrid concepts, all the while maintaining hilarity, genuinely likeable characters and a blistering pace now standard in most comedy shows.

    The show excels the most with its odd ball humor seemingly poking fun at sitcom and teenage drama cliches. Both of these are most present when the show jabs at the "A very special episode", "Previously on" or "Next time" narrated segments, often to episode highlight degree.



    However, I never really felt they managed to top the pilot in the laughs department and with EVERY single episode featuring something tying into Joan constantly pining over Abe, the plot, in my opinion, never explored its genius concept in any huge way. In short, I've never wanted straight filler so bad in my life.



    But with that being said, its short life span didn't really let the show grow and that maybe the biggest sin of omission it committed. Being to darn original to stick around.moreless

  • I watched an episode once, and I loved it. It was too bad that lawyers killed it.

    I loved the show, and like Time Warp Trio and Time Squad, you can easily point out the inaccuracies; sometimes my favorite thing to do is look up the information they had to see if it was right. I liked the Gandhi character, and despite the fact he was portrayed rather negatively, I still liked him. Curse the lawyers, and parent-friendly suing!



    "JFK: Nothing bad ever happens to the Kennedys!" * his car crashes and he loses* I have to admit, it was offending, but they knew for a fact it was going to be, if it's on MTV anyway.moreless
  • He's an up and coming rapper with street smarts and skills to pay the bills, she's a lovably canceled television program... And they're on a collision course for hilarity and a wholesomely good time! But can they make it work? The yes's and no's as 2.5 bamoreless

    Have you ever been enveloped in one of those awful comedy romance movies and had no way to escape? I'm not just talking about being trapped in the cinema floor itself, ushers aggressively sashaying you into submission, but inside the movie. For the outsider it may be cringe inducing, but deep down they’ll suppress the realization that it’s cute in a way not dissimilar to your parents still making out.



    At first glance, Clone High was an adversary fit to be loathed. My past relationships with these betty’s had been exponentially disappointing and abusive. Commercial-wise, I glowered contemptuously at its coquettish posturing toward the target demographic and imagined foibles. Unconsciously I had decided not to ogle it’s sumptuously glossed curves and plump, undulating haunches of creativity the networks impartial voiceover showcased. “Don’t get drawn in champ, it’s either gonna be a twofaced know-it-all

    like Sarah Southpark, or a drunken waste case like Sally Simpsons or you’ll wind up in bed with the second Pamela (Peter) Popetown and realize it’s another man.”



    But as the movie genre dictates, I inevitably came around. By chance or fate, I flipped the love box on just as Clone High premiered. It was like that girl you had met earlier stopped taking your seat on the bus, grabbing the last candy bar out of the machine and punching you in the face just long enough to smile. And boy what a smile. I didn’t need to truly appreciate the premise of the show or the characters; that came later. I was even so blind as to not capture the play off other teen melodramas, and in the midst of rapture I was briefly taken aback that the show which had been incalculably funny so far would employ such a lame decision making climax. However, the first date was surprisingly hot, and I eagerly awaited next weeks.



    Just succinctly I’ll detail a few of Clone High’s features which entailed the fiery attraction I hope you’ll experience atleast once in your life.

    It is my opinion that it is inarguably funny, I don’t care if you’re the white witch who is made of stone, has no mouth and finds the idea convoluted; your sure to crack a giggle. The writers portion of the ten million didn’t go to corn nuts, and it shows.

    The theme and rebellious parody allocates the teens more strata’s of psychological relevance and power than any self respecting drama, I cannot even begin to fathom the strength to dissect the endless potential for teenage conflict with the railsplitter as a clone father. They are able to agonize and hambone their petty plights but hurdle monotonous angst with gag lines and hysterics. Furthermore, I do identify with the characters, but it isn’t required to enjoy the program.

    Complementing this, the pace is frantic and never preachy, and the minimalist background artwork is audacious and intrinsically appealing. But before berets are slung into the ring and a noxious smog of pretension chokes the crowd, I’ll stop diluting the symphony by putting it in words. Maybe you can get a superficial feel with some of these clips: http://www.clonehighusa.com/downloads/clips/_qt/new_pix_web/index.htm



    I learned early on that this was the one. I mean that in every stereotypical, high flown flowery and pink lace gilded sense. I was going to hold her hands to the grave, and it’s rather sad that she was wrestled still breathing into it, before we all got a chance to know her. I wouldn’t say our comedy romance ended as a tradgedy; she wouldn’t like that. But there’s nothing funny about ending great things like this without a punchline.
