Ok... So there was Nick making a fucking full-TV-show of an Internet-short-video series starring an intentionally obnoxious boy doing daily stuff... funny as an internet series, BULLSHIT as a TV show... And then Nick decided to use THAT ACTOR for another show in which he stars as a freakin' alien... doing generic repetitive stuff... how did that end up? Worse, fucking worse. And again, all I can think when watching it is... "wat"... I mean, "WAT?"
Nope... nothin' else to say...
All I can tell you is this: If you want to know how it feels like to get your IQ points slowly dropped, watch a full episode of this show. I barely survived it guys... but only because I did not spend one second just thinking about this show.
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
My favorite show on nick is marvin marvin. I watched it when you where making the episode calm palm. i know the person who plays pop pop and he is funny. It was realy cool because at the end my brother and i got to take a pictcher with the cast.
I can't believe I watched this crap. This is one of the worst Nickelodeon shows I have ever seen. No, wait. It's THE worst Nickelodeon show I have ever seen. It's even worse than Fanboy & ChumChum! Yes, I know it's hard to believe, but there's actually something out there that's worse than Fanboy & ChumChum. Let me tell you the story of Marvin Marvin.
This show centers around a teenage alien named Marvin. He's played by none other than Lucas Cruikshank. You know, Fred? I can't believe this guy is still on Nickelodeon, and who's bright idea was it for him to have two shows anyway? Thank god he doesn't have that annoying chipmunked voice in this show. Anyway back to the story, Marvin has to leave his home planet due to a war and ends up on our home planet, Earth. He disguises himself as a human and ends up living with a family while maintaining his secret and trying to fit on Earth. Now, let's talk about the characters. All of the characters are not funny and are unlikeable. The only character that is likable in this show is Terry, the teenage girl. Marvin is so dang annoying you just wish you could reach into the TV and choke him to death. The Mom is a typical goofy mom. The Dad is better than the mom, but he is sill not funny. The little boy is just as fucking annoying and stupid as Marvin. Why? Because in one part of the first episode he said "That was an epic walk! Murray peed on 5 trees, 2 bushes, and a squashed raccoon" What the heck? That's not an epic walk, that's disgusting. The Grandfather is such a dick. He's greedy, spoiled, disrespectful, and more. Speaking of which, why are the teachers such big jerks to the students? These teachers need to be fired at once. The episodes are predictable and disgusting. There was this one part in the first episode where Marvin pukes out cereal and milk for Terry. Now, tell me, is that supposed to be funny? No. It's not. It's frigging disgusting. Speaking of which, the laugh track in this show is spammed.
When Marvin was barfed out the cereal and milk, the audience laughed. Why?
Also, this show is a rip-off of Mork & Mindy, which is a much better show. Why? Because in Mork & Mindy, the characters are likeable and the stories are good. Not to mention they were funny! But Iin this show, most of the characters aren't likeable, the stories suck, and it's not funny at all!
If I see a Top 10 Best Nickelodeon Shows, and I see Marvin Marvin on it, I'm seriously going to dislike a leave a rude comment.
Yes Nick, cancel ICarly and Victorious, the only good shows that were left on Nick after SpongeBob went down (see my review on it for details), but keep airing this monstrosity that should have been cancelled after the pilot. I'll be honest, I've never actually watched an episode. But that's because I don't have to to know that it's a piece of crap! The commercial that really sealed the deal for me was the one where he says, "If you're going to whisper to me, please speak to my hearing organs! They're located in what you humans refer to as, THE BUTT. *points to his ass*" Nobody except immature 5 year old boys would find that funny. But no! Nick insists it's their greatest idea since the last show they made (which they insist is amazing)! I'd personally rather watch Fanboy and Chum Chum than this abomination Nick calls comedy. I can tell that it sucks, and judging by the other reviews I've read, actual viewers agree. Don't watch this. Go do something useful with your life.
Remember that quote "Don't judge a book by its cover"? Well this time you don't even need to follow that quote once you hear about this show. And this is one of those shows (Dear God) that should have never aired Marvin Marvin is about a teenage alien named Marvin with special powers and is sent to Planet Earth to protect them when humans invade their planet. Now this show is a ripoff of not only Mork & Mandy, but Ben 10 and Invader ZIM, it rips off Ben 10 mostly because the way Marvin looks without his human disguise is similar to one of the aliens of Ben 10. Speaking of Marvin, He tries to act like a normal cool teenager. But is just an idiot. Helping him navigate Earth's unfamiliar social customs are Marvin's human siblings. Now it sounds bad at 1st. But when you see it for like after 15 seconds, you'll soon change the channel quickly. Its disgusting humor! I mean, using your nose to drink a milkshake and squirting it out! Bring us more humor writers! I know he's just an alien. But I can't stand looking at something so disgusting like that! Its also just fart jokes and other toilet humor. I swear I never laughed once! I know I'm cool with iCarly's laugh track since it went off less in the newer seasons before it ended and this trash came on! But the worst character is the younger brother. I don't even wanna get started with him. All characters are unlikable pretty much. Its ratings are even worse than Fanboy and Chum Chum's ratings! The plot is stupid too, Its been used like tons of times and it is kinda similar to Fairly OddParents I suppose. Overall terrible humor, lame jokes, terrible plots, unlikable characters, awful music! This is one of the worst shows Nick has ever made! I am sure this is going to get the boot early that's for sure. When I'm all sad iCarly is over, now this show is here to make me even sadder and make things worse for Nickelodeon now. And I hope it gets canceled soon ASAP. And please stay as far away from this show as you can and let it be canceled like I'm sure it will after a couple of episodes. Overall Grade: (-infinety/10) --F-----
As much as people like to crap on this show, I think it's being trashed unnecessarily. I'll admit it. When I first heard of the show, I wondered how low Nickelodeon could get after this. But after watching the "Toothache" episode, I became a fan. Lucas Cruikshank's FRED character was just God-awful, so he needed something new, something better. And guys, he's an alien. He's going to do weird things. And damn me to Hell if this isn't true, but at times it's more watchable than Victorious. As that show begins to slip further and further into formulaic crap, Marvin Marvin picks up the bones by being funny and putting me in a good mood. I mean, the other day I watched the worst Victorious episode ever. It was 100% nonsensical, and whatever they thought was funny was just pathetic and shameful. Then I watch Marvin Marvin and I feel good again. Nickelodeon, for the first time in a very long time, and I say this through gritted teeth, you have a winner on Saturday nights.
The show sucks a little bit now. I don't like Teri that much and Henry's becoming more of an arrogant asshole that sees Marvin like Teri does, but other than that, this show is good. And a lot of you need to stop posting that the show sucks. Someone who likes it might become discouraged by all this hate and stop liking the show. We get it already!!! The major consensus is that it's the worst show ever so just leave it alone and do something better with your lives than just getting cheap likes!!! And I'm sick and tired of hearing the show's humor is disgusting. This is disgusting? No, what they do on South Park and what they did on The Ren & Stimpy Show is disgusting. This is tame and domesticated compared to that. And I bet when Marvin Marvin is eventually cancelled, you'll still be crapping all over it.
Bad show with bad actors. Like How to rock it's unentertaining, unfunny, humiliating and boring. This is also what we describe Lucas Cruikshank, YouTube is where he belongs. Acting is not his thing and never will be. I would give this show about a few more months before it ends. good.
Nick has honestly gone downhill ever since they started featuring Lucas Cruikshank as one of their regulars. First with Fred, now this? He has never been funny, and never will be. The only alien named Marvin I will ever approve of is Marvin the Martian. Get it together, Nickelodeon.
I never planned to review this show because it would obviously be the same damn opinion as the other users reviewing this crap but a fellow user named NintendoFanboy9 requested me to review this show so here goes my review and enjoy the your request NintendoFanboy9. Nickelodeon has really gone the lowest of the low. Some people crap on "Supah Ninjas" but in my opinion, that show is watchable and decent and I rather watch that than this horrible and disgusting crap called Marvin Marvin. The idea just sounds like something we've already seen done a lot of times before and it's very UNoriginal too. Pop Pop is basically the only character I like while I don't give a crap about the other characters and that includes Marvin Marvin. I never laugh at this show and even if I were to get a laugh or two for each episode, it would be just from Pop Pop. The good news is that Lucas Cruikshank's previous show "FRED: The Show" was canceled and doesn't do the annoying little girl voice (happy dance) but the bad news is that he immediately does another show called "Marvin Marvin" (stopping happy dance) and while it's good to not hear that voice anymore... the premiere for this show was almost as bad as FRED: The Show. Seriously??? when an alien's hearing organ is placed in the butt then you know it's just bad news. Who comes up with stuff like that? writers who have senseless and UNgenuine sense of humor. I know aliens are meant to be weird but Marvin Marvin (Lucas Cruikshank) just does things so wrong and says annoying things too that it feels forced, not funny at all, and makes you wanna bang yourself in the head. I can't stand one minute of this show. I saw like 5 episodes of this show (I gave it 5 chances but I'm a nice guy) and it was all horrendous indeed. I really hope Marvin Marvin will be canceled and that Lucas Cruikshank gets the message that no one wants him on a TV Show ever. The guy can do something better and I'm sure he's better than this. I hope the staff of this show are getting chocolate puddings out of their mouths and and get the message that no one likes this show. I know kids watch this show but Nickelodeon needs to understand that some older viewers will watch this too. I know a good show (in my opinion) when I see one. I'm not hating this show so I can follow the crowd. I actually go by my own honest opinion and MARVIN MARVIN is one of the biggest failures to ever hit, not just Nickelodeon, but in children's program history. It feels like Nickelodeon is insulting the kids too like I know kids can get a laugh at actual great and fresh humor. Just don't waste your time on this show everyone!!! it is an atrocity that needs to be put Rest In Peace. Nickelodeon is really going down the toilet as the only live-action show I'll watch now is "Big Time Rush" because that's actually an enjoyable show. Once again, avoid Marvin Marvin and hope it will be canceled as soon as possible. 1/10
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.
This show is terrible. I wish that you could give it nothing! Sadly the lowest is 1.0 I would give it a -8!
I'm not kidding, this is probably one of the worse shows to ever air on Nick!
Lucas Cruikshank already ruptured our hearing with his ''Fred: The It is about a teenage alien sent to Earth disguised as a teenage boy and trying to act normal. Is it me or does this story sound strangely familiar? That's right! It's a rip off of Jhonen Vazquez's Invader ZIM! I'm not being a fantard or anything but it's true. Except of course the jokes aren't funny and it makes no bloody sense. I want to be a cartoonist when I grow up. (I'm And I bet that I could make a cartoon funnier than this piece of crap!
The plots are bland and boring. Since when is hearing organs in your butt funny? The little kid is the worse out of all of them. You know the part when Marvin is trying to learn American slang? He says: ''Marvin, you're Way to stay in character. The audience laughs over nothing, I bet they're not even watching it. I bet it's just a recording of them laughing at something which is actually funny. NICKELODEON, STOP IT. Do not watch this show. It will probably give you the same symptoms as Lavender Town syndrome. I would rather watch a 10 times scarier than this.
I'm not kidding when I say this is quite possibly the worst show to have ever aired on Nickelodeon, and quite possibly the face of television. (Except for like Mr. Meaty, but that's from like 2003). First of all, does anyone like Lucas Cruikshank? Of course not, so why create one, let alone two shows and like three movies about him, Nickelodeon? Marvin Marvin is about a "teenage alien" sent to Earth or something and disguised as a teenage boy. I'm not kidding when I say the show has the oldest and stupidest jokes, worst acting, and most disgusting and stupid visuals I've ever seen. Half of it makes no sense. Hearing organs (pretty sure there's no such thing; correct me if I'm wrong) in your butt, steam coming out of your belly button... Also, it has the worst actors and oldest and stupidest jokes. The little boy is the worst. One line was Marvin trying to say "American slang" (from like 1996 I might add), and the little boy says: "Marvin, you're hilarious". Way to stay in character (even though it wasn't funny). Also, an episode where Marvin tries to be cool, involves "cool kids" on skateboards, and Marvin making gecko noises. Nickelodeon, STAHP. Do not watch the abomination that is this show. It is quite possibly the worst show ever created. This makes Buket and Skinner's Epic Adventures look like an Emmy contender. Nickelodeon, why do all of your shows SUCK now?
The show is horrrible. Everything about it characters are bland, the plots are bad and boring, the humor is gross and incompetent, the concept is unoriginal, this show makes fanboy and chum chum look masterful. I feel sorry for people growing up with Nick nowadays, shows like these on I've given up on the channel. I really have writers block, yep the show's that bad. THAT IS ALL.
This show is so stupid I sure hope this show ends man this makes Fred the show look better then this nick can do better then this I hope nick let's us have a 24 hour days of the good old shows do you agree this show should die?
WHO THE HELL IS MAKING LIVE-ACTION SHOWS ON NICKELODEON THESE DAYS? THIS SHOW IS WORST THAN EVERY SINGLE BAD SHOW ON TV!!!! I'D RATHER WATCH BARNEY, FANBOY & CHUMCHUM, AND SECRET MOUNTAIN FORT AWESOME!!!! I DON'T EVEN WANT TO TALK ABOUT THIS SHOW.
I think I have to consult a doctor now, I may have brain cancer along with 100 points of my IQ lost. Don't bother watching this show. it's is terrible. it's no where close to funny. the guy is played by the guy who does Fred, and Fred is terrible. like this one episode showed that ***ed alien pouring himself a glass of chocolate milk from his nose and he drank it, then a girl said "that was disgusting......... LY AWESOME!!!!! What? That was no awesome, that was weird and disgusting, period. In about 5 years i'm gonna ask someone "Hey, do you remember that alien show on Nick?" and if the answer's not Invader Zim, i'm gonna have to do something about that. I would rather sit down and watch an episode of Hannah Montana than this piece of shit. Nick is seriously dead now. there are no more good shows on it left.
I have nothing else to say that hasn't been stated before. The government should issue a warning that watching this garbage is the equivalent of bathing in a vat of toxic waste. Please do not watch if you cherish life. You've been warned.
***Edit (1/15/13): Apparently there is a new episode coming out. If you don't know how bad this show is, check out the synopsis I got from the Marvin Marvin wikia: "When Liz forbids Marvin and Henry from seeing a scary movie, they disobey her and watch it anyway. They go to a movie house and watch the scary movie, an after that, it affects Marvin and he starts to act strange around the house. He even stinks up so much from his belly making it
That's right. Marvin gets scared and his BELLYBUTTON starts making a weird smell? That's disgusting and NOT funny. I've seen the promo for the episode, and there was STEAM coming out of his belly button.
The Worst Alien Related Show on the Face of the Planet, maybe just maybe even the Universe. Marvin Marvin is a ***ed alien who barfs things out of his mouth and makes the most pathetic Jokes on the face of the universe! No one is likeable; except maybe the Teenaged Girl (Don't know her name). The Mother is just a bland t typical goofy mother, but is never funny! The Father is not as bad, but never funny anyway. The little kid is just an Unlikeable Troublemaker, yes Bart Simpson is also a Troublemaker as well, but at least he is likeable and doesn't like getting into trouble. The little kid on the other hand believe it or not likes getting into Trouble and he thinks he is awesome but in reality is just annoying, The Grandfather is just a Greedy, Self Centered, Arrogant, Rude, Disrespectful, Pretentious and Spoiled man; did I also happen to mention that the Teachers at the School act like Assholes to the Students yeah some School Spirit, huh. The Episodes are Predictable and Bland, The Jokes revolve mostly on Toilet Humor and the Show just isn't anything new, we've already seen an alien disguised as a human, sent to Earth for a Mission, In fact it was on the same exact channel years ago when this channel was great and likeable, but got banned in Season 2! (You all know what Show I am Talkin' about. XP) but back to this Garbage, It is just so Pathetic, even worse than Fred. I hate Lucas C. he is such a sellout, to think that he was once the most famous Youtube Partner and had the most Subscribers on the website itself. but now he has just put himself into a spiraling flushed Toilet which he can not escape, way to go Luca, way to go. If you want to watch a good Alien show watch "Invader Zim" a show that was 1 million times better than this Abomination. Invader Zim was Disturbing on all good levels! X) And Marvin Marvin is Disturbing on all bad levels! -_-
