  • Tosh redeems Brian Atene, that ridiculous "actor" who tried out for Full Metal Jacket

    I honestly had never heard of Brian Atene before this, but boy, what a great original video. I don't know whether or not to take that audition video serious or not, but it's a pretty cool story to see him getting a job on Cougar Town for a quick guest-star role. And compared to the Web Redemption last week, this one was awesome. Not only does it give idiots a chance to explain themselves, it gives Tosh a chance to flex his comedic muscles and show he can write some ridiculously stupid yet entertaining skits.

    If anything, this episode is switched from last week. I loved the introductory videos from last week more than this week and I liked the Web Redemption last week less than this week. However, I do admit that the video of the woman throwing herself off of the building in Russia was pretty funny, if only because it's so insane. Now that I think of it, none of those intro videos were great except for the horrifying "Video Breakdown" one where the two guys breakdance naked and do horrible things to each other's naughty parts. Very strange indeed.

    Also, the whole "black twitter" thing was great and gave Tosh a good chance to show some of his racially insensitive humor.

    Much better episode than the premiere, but I do have one recommendation: get rid of the viewer video. It's funnier to watch videos that aren't intentionally supposed to be funny instead of ones where people try too hard to be funny.moreless
