If you don't laugh, you must be dead.
9 October 2014 | by foomongerSee all my reviews

Positive reviews must be fake? Seriously? Perhaps the often outrageous subject matter simply offends some people. Or maybe their humour glands are malfunctioning. Whatever; ignore these hatin' fools and check out this fine, fine show.

I don't watch a lot of TV comedy, at least not past the first ten minutes or so (tired jokes, the same old situations and canned laughter don't do it for me), but this had me hooked immediately.

Deadbeat is hilarious (as in laugh out loud and have to keep rewinding because you miss the dialogue for laughing). It's also surprisingly smart, especially when it's being dumb, which is a lot, okay most of the time.

And it has Tyler Labine! If you have seen any of his previous comedy work, you'll know this is one funny guy. I suspect a lot of ad-libbing goes on. Besides, it's worth watching just to see Tyler's wonderful range of facial expressions - I got a friend hooked by emailing a snapshot from episode one - priceless.

His annoying nemesis is too annoying for my tastes, but I guess that's the point. While Pacalioglu genuinely sees ghosts and lives in squalor, she fakes it into a successful career. The allegory tragically continues ...

There is one, maybe two episodes in the first ten that are merely very funny, but this is easily forgivable in the grand scheme of things (something Pacalioglu rarely gets!).

I give it one point for every episode that had me spitting my drink at the screen.

Season two, please!
