Storyline

A look into the dysfunctional lives of a group of friends, in a typical American sitcom. But, there's a twist. It is a sort-of spoof of The Muppets, with HBO, UNCENSORED humor, with a lot pop-culture references. If South Park had a kid with Friends and The Muppets, this is it. Written by Harrison Seeley

Watched the first five episodes last night
23 July 2010 | by garybatmanbuseySee all my reviews

I watched this last night for the first time after being told it was set on the isle of dogs (where i live) behind the lord nelson pub (which i frequent). I had no expectations as i thought it was going to be a lame puppet show...how wrong was I.

yes its offensive and crude, which i know people have complained about. ( i actually love it for this reason, i cant believe they get away with some of the comments).

The puppets look great and have some classic one liners, my fave being the pigeon and the cat.

this is not a very constructive review but anyone who is not easily offended and likes gutter humour should check this out, i hope it gets a second series. fingers crossed.
