I thought it was pretty funny, but I doubt it'll seem that funny to a mass audience. It's more of a spoof of sitcoms than it's a spoof of Dubya. I don't think very many people are media-literate enough to get many of the jokes. That's just me though. Your mileage may vary.

I watched the first one, but I couldn't catch the one a few days ago. I thought it was a bit too slapstick for my taste, but there was certainly at least a small degree of making fun of GW, so I enjoyed it. but you're right, it's more of a spoof on sitcoms in general than Bush himself.

Another reason to wish I got City TV. Too damn cheap to upgrade my cable package. (I pay enough for cable internet as it is.)

Nah, in Kingston you can only get about 4 or 5 channels with bunny ears, and City isn't one of them.

I thought it was pretty funny, though clearly more a spoof of old sit-coms than Dubya himself. I read they originally did their writing and casting on the presumption that Al Gore would win. The first one, with the only fetus to survive was sort of surreal in it's humour. You can see the South Park roots in these guys writing, and I had no use for that show at all. I doubt if the show will have much staying power unless they develop it a lot more. They have some good talent, and the George Bush character is great!
