Yes..it is funny..at least for Europeans
17 January 2006 | by jeanpierre-2See all my reviews

Americans might not find it funny, but for us Europeans, an American sitcom taking the Mickey out of George W. Bush junior. & Co. as well as the US's current and ongoing political paranoia toward anything remotely foreign or - if you prefer - alien is like manna sent from Heaven.

Whoopi's outspokenness and her hilarious one-liners directed at conservative America made me roar with laughter - even in the not particularly well dubbed German version. Whoopi's weird sense of humor might be perceived as outrageous or even un-American by Conservatives and/or Republicans, but from the perspective of Old Europe and a middle aged European, this brand of humor is exactly what America's media need to find their balance after years of kissing Dubya's feet.
