Titus

Show Summary

This half-hour comedy chronicles the hilarious world of Christopher Titus and his totally messed-up poor white trash family. Between his drunken father, his dimwitted brother, and his goody-goody best friend, it's amazing Titus is alive, let alone engaged to a "normal" girl. Titus adapted Christopher Titus' stand-up routine in a novel way: each episode is narrated by Titus from a black & white "Neutral Space," from which he comments on the events as they unfold, punctuated by short, surreal flashbacks to his childhood and adolescence. The hilarious interplay between these three levels of narrative is sometimes amazingly complex and even contradictory, highlighting the exceedingly black nature of the show's humor. Alas, the Fox network lived up to its history of commissioning innovative television and then sabotaging it; the third and blackest season was made particularly incoherent by showing the sequences out of logical order. Titus never made it to syndication, and is currently unavailable — a buried gem — until its release on DVD in September 2005.moreless

  • Totally disgraceful.

    1.3
    I saw several episodes of Titus, and I wish that I didn\\\'t. Christopher Titus should really be ashamed of himself for producing such a horrible show. Not only is it not the least bit funny, but it also tries to make fun of such serious subjects as child abuse, murder, and suicide as it fails miserably and tastelessly to get a laugh out of it. Titus even gives morals that are cynical and the exact opposite of how people should behave in each episode. It even has family members attacking and even trying to kill each other. What\\\'s so funny about that?moreless
  • Man i wish they would bring back this show. It's a long shot I know. But the series really ended on high. TV is missing out stuff like this.

    It's a long shot I know, but man i wish they would bring back this show. Talk about crisp storylines. The series really ended on high. Maybe stations like CBS or SciFi could pick it up. TV is missing out good stuff these days and something like titus coming back could really enliven it again. Seriously, they shouldnt have killed in the first place. It was so amazing. Someone somewhere surely should have the capacity to bring this back wouldnt they. Maybe go back to its orignal format before the changes that came and messed it up. Who knows, Titus can live again.moreless
  • An all time favorite

    10
    Titus is one of my all time favorite shows and definitely my favorite sitcom. The show was canceled most likely because it was a bit too edgy. Laughing about dysfunction and abuse is not for everyone. If you have or love anyone who has gone through an abusive childhood you will see the humor and the heart in this show. Sometimes the humor is the only thing holding you together. The humor is universal so that it with stands the test of time. A great show with great writing and a ridiculously funny cast. Do yourself a favor and rent the show if you have not already seen it.moreless
  • Undescribable; funny, witty, dark, and certainly brave.

    I started watching the TV series "Titus" after watching it's creator Christopher Titus in his stand-up comedy act "Norman Rockwell Is Bleeding". By the time I got through to the third episode of the first season, I found that I was bunking school to stay at home and sit through the half-hour-per-episode series. The show goes through certain dramatic and traumatizing incidents in Titus's personal life and manages to highlight both the light and the dark side of his ordeal. The show is hilarious while being therapeutic... the show was cancelled after the third season, partly due to the controversial nature of the show. The show dealt with incidents in Christopher's own life, including death, attempted and committed suicide, mental illness, multiple divorces, rape, alcoholism, and terrorism (especially in the last season). Irrespective of what you here from everyone else or what you read in other reviews, Titus is one of the most "different" and unique shows I have seen in a long time. Don't miss it.moreless
  • I SO LOVED THAT SHOW!

    10
    I just finished watching the entire series on DVD. I almost forgot how funny that show was. I was so disappointed when it was canned. Networks seem to not know what is great TV. Especially FOX! Would love to see a reunion. Let's face it, there is nothing that funny on TV now. Just reality shows, which are a complete waste of time and energy. "Titus" was all about making a disfuntional family look OK. Made my family look pretty normal. The cast was so well put together. Try finding a show that works so well and make you laugh the entire time it is on. Christopher Titus is an amazing comic. I love his stand up and he was so great on his show. FOX network never gives any of their shows a chance. Unless it is American Idol, which don't get me started on that. Miss ya Titus cast!moreless
