This show used to be the ONLY reason why I'd watch UPN, and ever since it got cancelled, I never went back.
But it's on Comedy Central, allbeit at the usual ungodly hour they place mature cartoons at. But for them, I'd drink that extra bottle of Mountain Dew anyday!
On the surface, it seems like your mundane, out of the bottle "Odd Couple"-esque sitcom which featured a dorky, conservative Gary and a wild free spirit named Mike. What puts them apart is that they kept doubling on that concept, and doubling it, and doubling it, and doubling it, and doubling it until you have a product which you can't help but forsake the need for oxygen and laugh the night away.
Typical episode: Gary thinks Mike is a third wheel and decides to split up with him. Mike ends up being laid by several underwear models while old hapless Gary ends up trying to escape from a bunch of underworld freaks who lives in the sewers. How that could possibly happen, you need to see the episode for yourself.
***** out of ***** It's too bad all the good shows get the axe.
