    There is so much wrong with this ABYSMAL excuse for a show that it's almost impossible to sum it all up in a few paragraphs so let's start with some keywords: boring, asinine, bitchy, slow, ***ed, uninspiring, pathetic, depressing, distressing, embarrassing, and of course, COMPLETE SHIT. I feel like this show was made only to literally piss me off. Other shows are bad you know, Annoying Orange, Fanboy and Chum Chum, Teen Titans Go (on some occasions), hell even the dumb reality shows on VH-1. But this sorry ass piece of work is one of the main reasons why I have limited faith in humanity sometimes. Here we go:

    For one, this show is missing the most important thing about a good tv show.............. PLOT, UNDERSTANDING, REASON FOR EXISTENCE, and pretty much ALMOST ANYTHING in general.

    The show is extremely mediocre at best. I absolutely hate how people actually LIKE this show. The show makes no sense whatsoever. After watching the first 3 minutes, I wanted it to end just as it started and saw no desire to go any further. Then there's the humor. The humor on this show SUUCKS!!! It's not funny, it's boring! It has no flow! I find it ridiculously impossible to laugh, smile, hell, even think happy thoughts when this garbage is in my presence. The jokes, humor, comedy, everything on this show seems so FORCED. It's like they can't come up with anything original or likeable and relies HEAVILY on visual gags and slapstick humor. Wow, a SIMPLE EMBARRASSMENT. It takes FOREVER for an actual plot to show up because this show is drowning in horrible jokes, characters, and animation. Honestly, you can't seem to figure out what the fuck is going on in one episode. And by the time you do figure out what's happening, the episode is over, so that's almost 10 minutes of your life that you're NEVER getting back. It seems like each episode is even worse than the last. The creators couldn't think up of anything aesthetically pleasing and instead flood each episode with the most INCOMPREHENSIBLE SHIT IMAGINABLE, lacking any creativity or impact. This show takes no skill to create. The animation is lazy, it looks like shit that's like left over from another cartoon, and it's complete, visual torture. The show tries to invent a cool and original catchphrase by making the main character spit out " Good Morning!" over and over again and it's FUCKING AWFUL. (And I swear to God that the writers were just thinking of the dumbest shit ever and came up with "Good Morning!", then they wrote it on the script, and called it a day) The soundtrack is ear splitting, I couldn't stand hearing anything on this show anymore, it makes me want to shove a needle in my ear. You know, who the fuck greenlights shows like these, cause it's damn near unwatchable.

    But let's get to one of the real reasons why I hate this show, THE CHARACTERS. Pizza Steve represents almost everything wrong with side characters, he's completely useless and only serves to promote cannibalism and ignorance. Belly Bag is no fun to watch, he's just like the majority of the idiotic cast and needs to stop talking cause no one cares about what he says or why he says it. Giant Realistic Flying Tiger............. WHAT? Mr Gus serves as the only character on the show with common sense, and it frustrates me that he is the butt of almost every joke. Basically Mr. Gus is the only thing on this show that doesn't immediately make me vomit, which isn't saying much. And the main problem with Uncle Grandpa is Uncle Grandpa. He is the most ***ed, ignorant, incompetent, loudest, unreasonable, condescending, frustrating, inconceivably annoying protagonist ever in TV history. He apparently is supposed to be this "magical being" where he is Uncle and Grandpa to everyone in the world which doesn't really make sense at all. The show attempts to justify that just because he says "Embrace the weird" that we are all supposed to just drop all sense of thought and like it. He is creepy, never shuts up, looks HORRIBLE, constantly thinks that "Good Morning" is a good catchphrase, he is a disgrace to all cartoon characters, he frustrates me and the world of logic and understanding to no end, he represents the complete opposite of a good protagonist, he has no redeeming qualities whatsoever, and is overall A DOWNRIGHT ABOMINATION OF A CHARACTER!!! He makes me want to slam my head against cinderblock, he sucks so bad that I wish he was real just so I can endlessly torture this bitch. I hate him. This show has been hyped up for a couple of months, and it's TERRIBLE to see what the fuck they've been doing all this time.

    Another reason why I hate Uncle Grandpa is not just the show itself, but the amount of confidence Cartoon Network actually put in this pathetic waste of life. Before the show premiered, CN hyped it up big time. It was on every tagline, commercial, YOU NAME IT. Fooled every dumb motherfucker on the planet into thinking that it was going to be monumental and one on of the best cartoons ever made. You know, for a show this terrible, CN seems to love endorsing the hell out of this dude. They gave the biggest sneak peeks ever prior to the show's airing. They enjoy showing his stupid, God-awful face everywhere praying some idiot would give the show a chance. I beg of you, PLEASE DON'T. I find it completely DISGUSTING that people actually would compare this assbag to more superior shows. No, I don't hate this show because it's "too weird" (trust me, I've seen weirder). I hate that this show is a GIGANTIC FAIL. And this show comes with a FANBASE!!!!! What the hell?!? CN is desperate to keep this show on, for what, FOR WHAT?? THIS SHOW BLOWS!!! AND THEY KEEP IT ON SO THAT IT COULD BLOW!!! Ya'll couldn't have been a little honest for your whole piece of shit show, AND YA'LL HAVE THE AUDACITY TO ANNOUNCE IT FOR A THIRD SEASON?!?!?!?!?!?? More than twice the airing time of some of the best cartoons out there? Are ya'll kidding me?!? This is criminal. Cartoon Network was my childhood, when I'm older I'll never stop watching it because (besides sugar) it made my childhood all the sweeter. Even though I will always love CN, it's absolute shit sometimes because these idiots can't make better decisions. Who in their right mind would hire the guy responsible for making Secret Mountain Fort Awesome AGAIN? Last time I checked, SMFA even by CN standards, was the worst cartoon show ever made at the time. It sucked so much that like smart people they cancelled it immediately. So CN I ask you, WHY IN THE FLYING FUCK WOULD YOU DUMB MOTHERFUCKERS HIRE PETE BROWNGARDT AGAIN TO MAKE ANOTHER SHOW?!?!? Pete Browngardt must have tripped some serious balls so that CN could let him make another show. As the creator, he is pathetic, he is juvenile, he makes The Room look like Shakesphere.

    I wish I could say more but I don't wanna suffer from a brain aneurysm trying to explain the rage and disappointment I feel about this GARBAGE. I could write an ENTIRE BOOK on how unbelievably bad this show is. This show is bad BEYOND COMPREHENSION. I would love to not watch this, but seeing as how one of the main channels I'm on is CN, his stupid, annoying face is EVERYWHERE ON THAT CHANNEL!!! I beg CN to cancel this like smart people. I absolutely HATE this show. I hate anything that Uncle Grandpa has to do with, Uncle Grandpa is the WORST FUCKING TV SHOW I HAVE EVER SEEN, EVER!! It's not because it's on CN, because if your on CN, obviously, you can't find any better work. So I must be right. I have to be right.


    Quick side note: I had to remove a couple lines because they sounded ***ed.

  • Its Gotten better

    I like every thing bout UG the art is pretty good, the characters are tolerable the only thing wrong with the show is the jokes are too corny most of the time it rarely makes me laugh but the jokes have improved in season three
  • Pretty Weird Show

    People are often struck by the weirdness of this show and cannot see beyond it but this is essentially the point of the show. The whole time it's telling you to look beyond the weirdness and see what's actually happening.

    Mr. Gus embodies people who struggle and achieve success through discipline. Often these people struggle to understand how some people have it so easy.

    Pizza Steve embodies the people who perform to achieve success through persistence. Often these people try the hardest but act like they try the least.

    Uncle Grandpa embodies everything weird and is a magical being and not a person. In real life no person is like uncle grandpa because no one can do what he does. Though he appears to be reckless at times by the end of the episodes we are led to believe that Uncle Grandpa somehow planned everything discreetly and without even trying.

    The main moral of the show being we should help people help themselves. To simply give someone everything doesn't teach them anything. The journey is always as important as the destination.

    I don't know how a show that promotes personal growth and development could garnish such spite from some people. Thanks your letting the colour of your character come out even if it took a TV review site to provide that sort of psychological release. In future I recommend a fresh cup of green tea and a morning jog.moreless
  • The show is very on and off

    I remember when I first watched the preview, I was actually pretty syked for the series, but after watching the first episode, I felt pretty disappointed. But I kept watching anyways just hoping it would get a little better, from what was noticed, the quality is very on and off. Most episodes just flat out suck, Pizza Steve is an annoying little prick who always gets what he wants, the jokes are weak and aren't funny, the segments at the end of each episode are dumb and just don't work.

    While you have others that are decent at best, I was one of the doubters for the Steven Universe crossover, but it honestly wasn't bad. It was about the only tolerable episode in the entire series. But I will give the series some positives, I appreciate the creativity that is used in the show with examples such as Viewer Special, Uncle Grandpa Babies and the guest animator episode. And the fact that it's not afraid to push the boundaries a little bit, but it just doesn't hit home base the way it should.

    To me, the show is just okay, It could've been better. If your looking for something to watch while your bored on a Saturday afternoon, this show will do the trick. But to rely on this show as a hit and come back week after week, it just doesn't work.moreless
