Oliver Beene is a hilarious series that follows the life of a 11-year-old boy struggling to find his way to normalcy despite his eccentric family and his offbeat personaility. Oliver Beene is a classical underground, under appreciated series that shouldn't never been on Fox at the time. It should have been on at least NBC. This show is hilarious and I thought I outgrown it a long time ago but here I am trying to find whatever episodes I can find of it. It should be on Nick at Nite at the very least!
Though the main character makes offbeat faces and probably couldn't act to save his life, this actually helps to establish the character as well as the fast-paced comedy style. I enjoy the narrator. He doesn't just state the undertones but he does so with wry and witty humor adding it full of wondrous personality. I sometimes look at the credits of this show and the people who work on this show went on to create. Carter and Thomas worked on this show created "How I Met Your Mother." Steven Levitan went to create "Modern Family. This show had the talent and potential to be a smash sensation.
The situations Oliver and his friend gets into are simply hilarious. Even though this was canceled and I haven't seen this show in a long while, I still managed to fall in love with this show. I wish they would bring this show but it probably wouldn't be same as I ever so fondly reminiscence.
