  • The trial of R Kelly

    This has to be one of the funniest episodes of any show I have every seen. The timing was great. Some, if not most, of the characterizations were dead on. The one-liners were great and the dialogue seemed to fit well. There isnt much to not like about a show that takes one of the day's headlines and skewers it much like a sketch comedy does. That doesnt cheapen the experience any though cause this whole show's premise is one that has a man-on-the-street level of story-telling and it's those sensibilities that bring out the best in this episode. The exchanges between the main/central characters (Grandpa, Huey, Riley) come off as very believeable (especially considering my personal family experience). The only downside (if it can be called that) is seeing another celeb get out of trouble, serious trouble just because they're famous. It's sickening, but I suppose that's how the cookie crumbles. It's also possibly why we watch................
