Worst show ever?
31 March 2016 | by mellowoSee all my reviews

This is a great example of why things that you see on the internet, can't be translated into 15 minute TV episodes consisting of 24 episodes. I've been forced to sit through FRED: the show with my little cousin who watches it and likes it for some reason. I didn't know at the time that the show was based on the web series FRED because I never heard of it, so I checked the web series out as I was curious. The web series consists of around 5 min short clips of the character FRED, played by Lucas Cruikshank. I also don't find the web series funny but I found it more bearable than the show as the web episodes are just 5 mins.

I've gone way too much into describing the background of FRED, what's the show like. The show is what it is, a 15 minute version of the 5 minute web episodes. The show suffers from the same problem the web series does, it doesn't even try to be funny and because it's not funny and puts this annoying character in front of you, you will find the show annoying and unfunny. It's the same reason why I hate the Annoying Orange as well (which is another show my little cousin has forced me to watch.) If something sort of works on YouTube (and I literally mean it just sort of works) then it is common sense that it will not work for television and FRED: the show is the testament to that. I can't think of one memorable moment from the whole show. So let's do a bit of math. Each episode is 15 minutes long, there are 24 episodes = 6 hours of my life I will never get back. The things that are going on throughout the show don't make any sense at all. I can't tell whether they're trying to be realistic or fictional as it's somewhere in between. One minute it's following the laws of physics, next thing FRED makes a love potion which doesn't exist. That's a great message to send out to the kids isn't it? "Can't find love kids? Just make a magic love potion, no need to go through that stage in life known as dating and getting to know someone, just get a love potion, FRED seal of approval (and the Mellow seal of disapproval.) It also baffles me as to why they made this show, as they already made 2 movies based on this character and they both failed critically and financially, so why did they think a TV show would work? Just leave this "thing" on the internet where it belongs and leave it on the internet.
