  • Just as bad a Shuriken School

    2.0
    Ever since 2006 when Hurl Boy, I mean, Squirrel Boy came which is the worst show in history. CN hasn't even been trying anymore. Now going to 2009. We have a new crappy cartoon just as bad as Squirrle. This show is so horrible Who even know what its?! It got cancelled on it's run on ABC and Comerdy Central took in intrest and brought it back. WHAT??! What's cute about this pile of crap? This ChalkZone, This Just In and Shuriken School won't let a Viacom owned Network air Oggy and The Cockroaches, MegaMan: NT Warrior, Kirby: Right Back at Ya! and Mr. Bean: The Animated Series because actually like those junkie shows. If it weren't for removing This Just In, Yakkity Yak, Shuriken School and Tak and The Power of Juju and this on Viacom networks, they would still be full of crap. First of all Not only do the characters look ugly, they act stupid, annoying, idiotic, childish, immature, and creepy! Gerold is the leader of the family, and is just annoying, he has probably the personality in history, his also too sissy. probably the ugliest hippy in history. Helen is supposed to be smart, but actually acts like a complete moron. Plus she looks hot. Mr. only the worst of the antagonist, but one of the worst of the show. Seriously he sounds like he's being choked to death and The angry cop is kinda a ripoff of Kongo from Monkey Magic. And his personlity are actually even worse than Gerold'z. Plus he gets mad every time he's bored. Charlie shouldn't even be the leader of the group, he's just a jerk-face. The Humor is just gross-out Jokes and poorly written movie parodies. You should never laughed once in this crap! Don't even laugh by how stupid this show is! The actors weren't even trying on this show. The acting is just soooo pathetic. Don't even get me started with the animation! Everybody walks too stiff, the lip syncs are off, its too colorful and bright, everybody looks ugly (Especially in that episode Gerold's Way or The High-Way), almost everything about the animation sucks! Everything in the show sucks too! I'm sorry but there's nothing good about it!





    And if you like this show... YOUR THE REASON WHY TELEVISION SUCKS SO MUCH THESE DAYS!







    Please stay away from this show and let it be banned in america like it should have right after the 1st episode when it really should have never aired. Overall Grade: (-infinity/10).moreless
  • What Was This Trash?

    1.5
    Mike Judge apparently wanted to concentrate on doing other animation work when he learned that FOX would be cancelling his long-running series, "King of the Hill". However, Judge's successor series, "The Goode Family", is nothing more than a liberal counterpart that likely would have found its way on Air America Television, if the short-lived radio network would have been successful enough to go into the video spectrum. The only memorable character is the housewife, who looks like Meredith Vieira in her younger days (and probably should have been voiced by Vieira). It was amazing that a short-order season run of 13 episodes was completed and its reruns began airing on Comedy Central. There is virtually nothing to recommend here--the show's only redeeming quality is that it is free of the offensive humor found in more abysmal fare such as Fanboy and Chum Chum.moreless
  • This show is horrible! it's a bad recycle job of King Of The Hill. Why do they keep giving Mike Judge work?

    1.0
    Spin off from King of the hill? you will recognize the voices from K.O.T.H., even some of the characters look similar. So what's the difference from K.O.T.H.? Both unfunny, both drawn poorly. Goode Family main characters are tree hugging, vegetarian, hippies. Hank Hill disliked those types of people, so I guess that's the difference. I'm not sure what age group they were trying to appeal to with this show. There's not enough low brow, crude humor to appeal to the college crowd, and the political correctness will disgust the older generations. This show won't last long. Nothing new here. Don't waste your time.moreless
  • Just Not Good(e)

    2.5
    This is the PERFECT summer show! It makes you want to go outside as soon as it comes on. The animation is atrocious (far worse than K.O.T.H.), and it's just nothing close to funny. What's with the formula of stupid loser son and preppy disinterested daughter? Not only is there nothing original about this show, but it's just tedious to watch. Some of the writing hasn't been too bad, and there are a few sight gags, but everything is just so predictable and... Boring!



    13 episodes, just enough to carry thru summer, then the new fall lineup will come out and this one will get kicked to the garbage, errr, recycling pile.



    Goode riddance.moreless
  • Mike Judge, you're better than this.

    1.5
    Mike Judge is a great writer and to see him come out with this "comedy" is just horrible. A very obvious KOTH flip from semi-conservative to fanatical liberals but it's done poorly. Some parts of the show were borderline funny, especially the bits with their dog. Okay that was the only part really.



    My opinion on the show has nothing to do with my political stance (because I know many people will try to make that fit in to the reviews here), the bottom line is "The Goode Family" just isn't all that good. Nothing was comical in this show, it was preachy and bland. Maybe epis. 2 will go better but I doubt it.moreless
