  • A fun and entertaining guilty pleasure

    I first saw this at a point in my life where I was working all day and treating myself to random TV before bed each night - and along with various cartoons that had no business being on TV so late at night, Rick & Steve became an instant favorite. The characters were relatable, funny, and because I was a naive kid, relatively, the total taboo-ness of this show made it all the more fascinating. Much of the humor was crude compared to the life I'd been raised in, with religious parents, and maybe R&S was my "big escape" from what I knew and the *real* beginning of adulthood.



    The characters are realistic, although I can only guess that most of the situations were not. If I remember right, the baby had psychic powers, or telekinetic powers...and while the characters were fun, colorful, and I could relate to them despite having almost nothing in common with them, aside from not really fitting in sometimes - I think this show is awesome! The Lego-style is fun, the humor was excellent, and from what I remember, the plots were cool, too. I can't believe there are so few reviews and yet so many votes to the show - it deserves more! I love it, and I definitely count it as "worth watching"!moreless
  • A fun, non-preachy, animated parody of the gay lifestyle. Brilliant!

    I cannot believe I saw this show for the first time today. How long has it been on? I generally don't turn into Logo for any reason because it's so full of second-rate, politically correct, watch-us-or-you're-not-really-gay type of cable network fare. This little gem is awesome though. So happy I discovered it. They seemed to have been running a marathon this morning, and I was settled in on the couch and laughing my ass off. The characters look like animated Fisher Price people with their boobs and ab muscles drawn on in exaggerated fashion, so you know within five seconds you didn't accidentally stumble on something from Nickelodeon. The ensemble is mostly gay couple stereotypes, poking fun at all the gay clichés we've seen so many times both in the media and in real life. It's done so in such a way that makes fun but without having an agenda. It's jut hilarious. You laugh at these characters, but you are also endeared to them, because as silly as they are, you recognize yourself and your friends, because it's entirely comprised of aspects of truth.



    Extremely well done, just the right amount of cutting edge offensiveness (the kind I love). I am totally loving it and adding it to my DVR so I can see every episode right away!moreless
