I respect the haters. This is actually good. I like the acting and stuff. This actually is good! Victory Van Tuyl is one of my favorite actors! Overall, well done show, and I like how the show is constructed. Great job Nick!\
Is this really rerunning on Teenick? I seen a few episodes of this show and I did not like it AT ALL. It's pretty much as everyone describes it. Annoying, stupid, nonsensical, disgusting and plain weird. It's very unrealistic too. How can Marvin be an alien and human at the same time? Are the creators smoking or something? It's also a rip off of many beloved movies such as . Not even the title is original, ever heard of Marvin Martin? There's pretty much a lack of originality in every aspect of this show. It also teaching kids that it's okay to be obnoxious and idiotic. Even Marvin's ears are located in his butt, seriously how is this humorous in the show? This show is really gross, I even saw the part where Marvin barfs froot loops into a bowl. To top it all off this show is a horrific abomination that should not be watched by anyone, and be forgotten.
The fact that Louis Cruikshank directed this doesn't even make it better.
Marvin Marvin is about an alien teenage boy that is adapting to human life. I swear I saw a movie with that plot like that elsewhere.
Also, he has alien powers. He can control temperature, shapeshift, levitate, talk to animals and such.
The plot episodes are, literally the same that they follow a certain plotline. See below, it's already mentioned.
The characters are exports from "ICarly" and that show's not even mile better. Bad actors, exaggerating dimwits, stereotypes are everywhere to find! Whoo!
The humor, is very childish, which is not right since this show is aimed for adolescent children and probably teens. If they're aiming at babies instead, they should move to Nick Jr. where they belong. But keep in mind that I won't give them the green light and I'll find the "Hi5!" more interesting. Also, another toilet humor, great.
This show is just plain unwatchable. I don't know anyone here, but Starvin Marvin from South Park is more of an interesting character than Marvin Marvin.
Every show on Nickelodeon has boys that are totally stupid. Marvin Marvin was its crowning achievement in stupidity. This show isn't toilet humor but cesspool humor. It is no wonder that it got cancelled with only a handful of episodes.
They try to make a funny show, but they failed so miserably. They thought if they invited fred he'd be great but fred basically fell down long time ago. Can we do a show that's funny? Instead of putting no effort at all.
EDIT~ well look at that, the creator of the show played smart and left nickelodeon.
It's like cancer made a show! And it's about an idiotic alien named Marvin! Whoever gives this show a rating higher than 1 or 0.5 (if you can, apparently you can if you have enough reviews) or disagrees with this review is completely out of their mind! Instead of watching this, I say go to Netflix and watch Gordy! Gordy's got people, unlike Marvin MORON! Yes, that's right, I just called this show Marvin Moron! That's what they SHOULD call it! Or The Idiotic Alien! Only completely brain-dead morons could like this show! Yes, it's a show only a MORON, NOT mother, could even like, let-alone love! Unlike Gordy, the talking pig who made it big! P. S. Nick, now that this show is cancelled, CANCEL SANJAY AND CRAIG TOO! THAT SHOW IS ALSO LIKE CANCER!
UPDATE ON SEPTEMBER 15: Sanjay and Craig ACTUALLY GOT GREENLIT FOR A SECOND SEASON! God help us all. What next? Rabbids Invasion AND The Haunted Hathaways get renewed for a second season too? Nick is officially dead. Oh well, AT LEAST they cancelled this show and FINALLY stopped doing reruns of it.
This show isn't good, but I don't think it's an abomination to mankind. (Maybe it's because I've seen uncle grandpa). The characters are bland, and the humor is your generic toilet humor. I also noticed this show has a plot formula they repeat often. (A couple episodes don't do this). Basicly the formula is Marvin wants to do something but the parents tell him he's not allowed to. So he goes to Henry (the little brother) to help do what he wants to do. Either the brother or the sister tells the parents that Marvin is having some type of issue with his alien body. Eventually Marvin gets caught and is punished. The End. This show is more lazy and mediocre at best than an abomination.
I seriously think people should learn to give Lucas Cruikshank a chance. To me, honestly, Lucas Cruikshank deserves to stay on the air. If you don't listen carefully, you might not hear how more normally Lucas' voice is spoken on this show. I can't believe some people just say this show is just so dumb. I do not think that at all. I wish your show could just come back.
I found it relatively amusing, didn't go out of my way to watch it however. But when I started to enjoy it a little, you guessed it, the series was cancelled. Despite everything, I have fond memories of the show; it is just not as bad as the comments on this website make it sound.
This show could have been decent, they just over did it with the characters like in a lot of live shows recently aired on disney and nick. For example the teenage girl, there is absolutely nothing interesting about her character. All she does is school work and regular teen things, there is nothing interesting about that, her black friend isn't any different. Next is the parents. These exactly the same as the parents in good luck charlie , bland and dreadful. Then theres the 12 year old brat who attempts to be funny but just makes me want to change the channel with his try hard annoying jokes, once again, just like in ;good luck charlie. The only character I find interesting is the grandpa, the only not copied character from another show. Maybe if they didn't overload on the characters, sure Its about a modern family with an un regular character who entered it, but hasn't that been done a thousand times. I also like marvin, his character reminds me of sheldon from the "big bang If you would have toned down on the characters it could have been ok.
oops I didn't get a review in before this piece of *** was canceled. Aww too bad .
I'm just surprised that this lame crap got on the air in the first place - the star of the show , Lucas Cruikshank is as funny as hemorrhoids and makes a toothache enjoyable by comparison.
He had his 15 minute on youtube and I can't believe that even Nickolodeon would sink so low as to put him on television. but then when Snookie, J Wow, Paulie D, the Kardashians, Storage Wars, American Pickers and other reality hillbillies get paid to crap all over our television screens I guess there are no depths to which the networks won't sink.
Marvin and his show are why people with cable would say "150 channels and not a damn thing worth watching"
By the year 2080, there will be many shows that would come out but I would not be suprised if Marvin Marvin still stayed at #1 for worst show. It was a missed opertunity for Lucas C. and Nick. When I first heard of this show, I thought that it would help Lucas turn his acting career around along with Nicks low quality but the piolet failed. Then, I hoped it would bounce back like Bobs Burgers, because I heard that show had a weak start but managed to turn it around. However, the show got so bad, Wikipedia has this show on the list of worst shows ever. I agree. The show is rarely funny, the acting is half-baked and the only good part of the show is when the closing credits for the last episode ended. i hope in the future, writers will learn that this is not how you make a good show. You messed up again Nickelodeon.
Lucas Cruikshank please notice the fact that no one likes you! No matter what show you play on, you'll always be remembered as "that Fred kid". Marvin Marvin, in my opinion, is even worse than Fred. Well nah I can't say that. There's nothing worse than Fred. This show is a mess. Its about a ***ed alien. As if I haven't seen that plot in many different shows. All in all, this show fucking blows. And that's a nice way of putting it.
Lets all take a moment to thank God that this show has been canceled. Now lets see what stupid show Nick will shit out with Lucas Cruikshank on it next.
It amazes me how much Nickelodeon continues to sink lower and lower. With stuff like iCarly, Victorious, and Fanboy and Chum Chum plaguing that channel, you think they can't get any worse. Well they seemed to have proved that they can sink lower in this so called comedy called Marvin Marvin.
The show centers around an alien played by Lucas Cruikshank, yes it's Fred, the so called internet celebrity. If that isn't enough to drive you from this show, I'm sure the storyline will. It centers around an alien named Marvin, who is forced to leave his planet due to a war and ends up on Earth. He disguises himself as a human and lives with a family while maintaining his secret and fitting in on Earth. Does this premise sound familiar to you? It should since it's a big rip off of the hit show, Mork and Mindy. Yes, it rips that show off and makes a complete mockery of it. The premise is very similar to that show with how Lucas looks like a human and fits in on Earth, lives with a family, and learns about how Earthlings act. Unlike Mork and Mindy where it was actually funny, had memorable characters, and was creative, this show is downright abysmal, unlikable characters, and has some of the worst jokes ever on TV.
The characters are all irritating and are completely stereotyped to the max. Marvin is just annoying and gets on everyone's nerves. The teachers are harsh and cold to their students and love to belittle them for no reason. The jocks are jerks for the sake of being jerks. Nobody has any characteristics to them, nor are they even memorable. All of them are just flat and lifeless characters who we care nothing for because they all act like idiots. The only exception is for Pop Pop since he seems to be the only decent character and I did get only two laughs out of him.
The acting is awful to say the least. While Pop Pop's character is okay, everyone else does such a poor job. They either underact most of the time, or overreact in some scenes. Lucas Cruikshank proves once more why he shouldn't be in the acting business at all. Although we are thankfully spared his chipmunk voice like in Fred, he still acts like a raving lunatic who thinks he's funny, but in reality, he's an irritating and obnoxious character who makes Johnny Test look good in comparison. Seriously, where is Duke Nukem when you need him so he can shoot this alien in the head?
The jokes aren't even that funny at all and some of them are disgusting. I have no problems with crude or disgusting stuff, but this is really going too far. Seeing Marvin puke out milk and cereal is NOT funny at all. It's disgusting for the sake of being disgusting. And having the dad talk to Marvin's butt is not any better either. The rest of the jokes are usually ones that are so predictable, you can see them coming a mile away. Like when the mom asks Marvin to a board game and asks him to spin first. And wouldn't you know it? He literally spins around. And then there's the laugh track that always plays at moments that aren't even funny at all. It's annoying to say the least.
I really implore that you stay away from Marvin Marvin. It's an irritating, obnoxious, unfunny, blatant ripoff that needs to be booted off the air as quickly as possible. The only semi-decent thing in this show had to be Pop Pop, but even he's not enough to save this show. If you want a good show involving an alien who looks like a human fitting in on Earth, go watch Mork and Mindy. You'll have more laughs from that show then from this so called comedy.
And it seems like our wish has come true. Nick has officially given this show the ax. Hopefully Marvin Marvin will be placed in a rocket and shot straight into the sun where he'll burn alive. So long Marvin Marvin and good f**king riddance.
I've just about HAD IT with Nickelodeon trying to squeeze any money from this little ass-ball. I thought his web-show "Fred" was stupid, but not at all dreadfully horrendous. But since his first appearance on "iCarly" something went wrong. His show was low on quality(not that it had much to begin with, but you and Nickelodeon, Disney, even Cartoon Network were trying to get as much publicity from him as possible. Nickelodeon I guess trotting along this trail of bull-shittery contracted him so that he may only appear on nickelodeon. This lead to his first movie(shit), a sequel(ass), and a third film(shit).
After this trilogy of obnoxiousness and fart gags, nickelodeon released "Fred the was then this show came along and just FUCKING WORSE. The characters are obnoxious, as well as the scenarios. The jokes are stupid, and at times disgusting( Marvin's ears are his and the fucking story isn't even original, it's rip-off Alf(more or less).
It's fucking stupid, and thanks god it's cancelled.
UPDATE: Straight from Wikipedia: On June 26, 2013, Lucas Cruikshank confirmed on twitter that Nickelodeon has canceled Marvin Marvin. (FIREWORKS AND CELEBRATION IN TIMES SQUARE ENSUES)
Nick you have hit a new low. 10 years ago you were just as high as Cartoon Network and Disney Channel, but now as those channels seem to be recovering a bit, Cartoon Network especially, you're still going south. CN is starting to recover from their low, CN Real, and Disney the same, recovering with Gravity Falls and Phineas and Ferb, but Nick has gone down further. I would say the start of their problems was after the Spongebob movie in 2004, because that is when Spongebob started going down and eventually everything else. Nick has failed to produce a good show since Drake and Josh ended in 2007, and this show, Marvin Marvin, changes nothing.
I'm judging this show from one episode I watched, "The Toothache". The show is terrible. You obviously have Marvin, the weirdest person I've ever seen on any show on Nick, played by Lucas Cruikshank, making him free to make up weird words that might pass as funny. You have the brother, who is also supposed to be the coolest and "funniest" kid on the block. The sister, who is a stereotypical teenage girl and pretty similar to people I've seen on, lets say, 5 other shows. The grandfather, who is supposed to bring humor by his insults to other characters. The fathers never there, so I can't comment on him. And finally, the mom, who thinks she is the "Good job! Fist pump. BOOM" type of mom.
The humor is also terrible. All of the humor is based off either the crazy antics of Marvin or bathroom jokes. For example, when the teenage girl is talking to her friend after explaining why she can't see Marvin after he gets "The Toothache"
Friend: What's your family doing? What's Marvin doing?
Girl: Their probably having a farting contest.
Exactly. I don't know why Nick is investing millions of dollars in an 19-year old kid who made a couple videos on YouTube. They've given him 3 movies and 2 TV shows over the course of two years, none of which have been successful. I can handle the Fred videos online, since they are a length of 2-5 minutes long. However, 21-22 minutes of Fred or Lucas is unbearable. Nick's influence in its current years have ruined Spongebob, the Fairly Oddparents, and Dan Schneider. Pretty soon, the whole network is going to be ruined.
I'e seen every single episode, and I cringed for almost most of the time. I wish that the cast members will not appear on the remake Figure it Out, they don't deserve to be. This show also displays the worst examples of using laugh tracks. It constantly uses gross jokes!!! Toilet humor can be funny, but not gross enough to make you frown. If that wasn't horrible enough, BTR had to guest star in an 1 hour episode, which was god-awful. Overall, Lucas Cruikshank should stick to YouTube.
What was Nickelodeon thinking when they made this huge @$$ load of crap?! This show needs to get cancelled NOW, Nickelodeon. Please cancel this terrible, horrible, awful, bad, stupid, boring, pointless, idiotic, show, Nickelodeon! By the way, why I gave this horrible show a 3.0 out of 10 is because it may be a bad show, but, unfortunately, it's still not as bad as Fanboy and Chum Chum in my opinion. I think this show is a little better than Fanboy and Chum Chum; Fanboy and Chum Chum is SUPER SUPER SUPER annoying and pointless, while this show is boring and pointless. But, overall, those shows are both boring and terrible at the same time. Anyways, this show is about an ailen named Marvin, who is really portrayed by Fred from Fred: The Movie (which was a disappointing movie), and this show is also about Marvin just doing stupid things on Earth, such as pretending Earth is Mars (Marvin is pretending to think that he is on Mars, not Earth, which is very stupid and pointless; Marvin is a Martian in this terrible show), and that's just a dumb idea. Even though I hate this show so much, I'd rather watch this over Fanboy and Chum Chum since this show is just boring and pointless, while *@%-boy and *** *** is just terrible, horrible, annoying, stupid, boring, pointless, idiotic, and even brain-dead! As a matter of fact, I think Fanboy and Chum Chum's Average Rating should definitely be changed to 1.0 out of 10 instead of a 2.4 out of 10 since Fanboy and Chum Chum sounds like the WORST, and I literally mean the WORST show that I have EVER seen in my ENTIRE life. But, both shows need to get cancelled forever and EVER! Anyways, I think this show is just boring and pointless, not abysmal. I don't think this should even be the worst show ever on I think Fanboy and Chum Chum needs to be the worst show ever on . In fact, Fanboy and Chum Chum definitely needs to ranked #1 of the Top 50 Worst Television Shows Of All Time, and Marvin Marvin needs to at least be ranked #2 of the Top 50 Worst Television Shows Of All Time as well. Well, overall, this show is just horrible, and needs to be cancelled for good.
It Is Not Funny And The Boringest Show Ever Because Marvin Is A Dork and NOT FUNNY. It Is Bulok Like A Junk Like Fred The Show. The Main Role Of This Both Junk Is Lucas Alan Cruikshank He Is A Dorkwald and A Dunce And A Dork And A Looser. Lucas Is A Violent People.
What has Nickelodeon been thinking letting this crap programming on their channel. This show is just plain-out terrible and the jokes are just stupid and the humor is forced. The other terrible thing about this show is that Fred has this little annoying computer generated voice that he's had since forever, and he's just so god damn annoying, how could anyone like this show, it's so atrocious, the characters are very weird and just unnecessary, they're very forgettable, their personalities are like robots, the plot is very weird, and tries to do an extraterrestrial comedy, yet they fail horribly at executing it by hiring horrible actors who can't act for shit and having some green alien that looks like shrek's penis with an annoying ass voice.
This show is a another example of how bad nick has gotten.
This is terrible I mean really terrible. It is not funny at all. I watched one episode and I never even chuckled once. The actors are not good and Marvin is so annoying, even Fred, bad as he was, was not this annoying. Marvin's real from is so obviously computer generated. I do not have a problem with computer generally however they do not go good with live action shows at all. I think that this should be cancelled right now, and judging from the other reviews I'd say that there are very few who would disagree with me.
I haven't seen this show, & I have zip to no plans on doing so. Just from the commercials, this show looks undeniably brain damaging. I have NOTHING against the guy who plays Fred, because his youtube videos are hilarious (yes, I said Fred was funny, suck it if you don't agree, because I don't give two shits of a cent if you don't agree), but whoever honestly told him that this show was a good idea must have had a serious mental disorder, & must have blackmailed Lucas & whoever runs Nick.
I recently read the script & plot to this show, & wow, just wow, I honestly NEVER thought Nickelodeon could have stooped this low on the stupidity level. The plot apparently ripped off some show I've never heard of called "Mork & Mindy", but even regardless of that, the plot itself isn't original, at all, because it's already been done before & much better (Invader Zim). The humor is just gross toilet humor that isn't even remotely funny. It's just disgusting. How is drinking a shake through your nose & the spitting it all out through your mouth later funny? I mean, it was bad enough when one of Disney Channel's old shows did the same by using an alien that ate using his ass & after he was done asked for a toothpick (ugh, my nerves still cringe thinking about that), but Nickelodeon doing such a thing? I never thought it would come to that. Oh, & apparently the writers also think that having Marvin's 'dad' talk to his ass is funny too. You know there is something really wrong with a show when the main character's hearing organs are located within his butthole.
Next we have the character, Marvin, who is even more annoying & obnoxious than you'd expect. Whatever you think of Fred the show or youtube videos will make you apologize to him when you meet Marvin. He is so painfully idiotic that is just HURTS thinking about it. He came from his planet to Earth due to some war that was going on, & I don't know, I didn't get it much after that. Sounds a lot like Chad from the "Fairly Odd Parents" who came to Earth to avoid being massacred by his babe wife-to-be. It also doesn't even make sense; because I have no idea how alien parents could allow a being like Marvin to live in the first place.
When it comes to Lucas himself, he is not a bad actor, really; his real problem is that he doesn't know how to pick his roles, & so as a result he ends up in stuff like this with terrible jokes, annoying characters, & poor execution. It's like Larry the Cable Guy (thought I can't stand him), he isn't a bad actor, his problem is that he is in bad movie choices with terrible jokes & can only be seen as what his niche is. If Lucas were to actually think things through & start making better choices for his roles he could be great. Don't get me wrong, of the two shows his been in (including his cameo in iCarly) he does what he's supposed to, but again they've been horrible decisions. Fred did not need a show, & if it did then it should have been done better. And people who are seriously trashing Lucas & wishing death upon a kid who clearly already stated that he made Fred out of boredom & didn't expect to get popular, & simply because you don't like what he does shows you idiocy. I don't care much for Lucas, but even with shit like Marvin Marvin you don't see me trashing him or saying he should never work on television again. Lucas doesn't care what you think of his character Fred, he already stated that Fred is a character people either like or hate, nothing more.
The rest of the show itself makes so little sense that it will hurt your brain just trying to make out any little logic it does not have. Trust me, it is not worth it. Save your brain cells serious straining. This show is surprisingly & almost unbelievably worse than Austin & Alley & almost anything Disney Channel has recently done. A word of advice to Nickelodeon & to ANY networks out there, it is a really, REALLY bad idea to compete against a network like Disney Channel, it really is (that's how bad the network is & by doing so it really shows that you're desperate).
Also, STOP saying iCarly sucks, because it doesn't. Do NOT compare iCarly to ANY of the shows that came after it, especially this one, because doing that is the equivalent of comparing Courage the Cowardly Dog to The Problem Solvers. iCarly is also completely irrelevant to this show, so i have no idea why people are unnecessarily bringing it up.
Sorry for giving this show a score even though I haven't seen it, but this site won't allow me to post a review that doesn't have a score on it.
It sucks and it knocked off one of the best shows Icarly get marvin marvin off the air right now noone i know likes it out of 100, 0/100 the star of the show gets 2 shows get one of them off Marvin Marvin or fred or get them both off please and get icarly and victorious back NICK SERIOUSLY NOW ALL I WANT TO DO IS TO CANCEL NICK IF THEY CANCELED SOME OF THE BEST SHOWS EVAR
