I'm finally watching it... although after watching The Venture Bros.... it seems pretty terrible. Boring, stupid, plus about a hundred million non-sequiturs that are supposed to pass for humor.

I'm just not getting it.

Why do you hate fun?

No one would have said to watch Birdman because you liked Venture Bros.

Birdman is grouped with Sealab and Aqua Teen in terms of likability. You like all three of those if you like any of them probably. Venture Bros. is on a whole other level.

I love fun... and I do appreciate that many DOOMComisms appear to arise from this show, but yeah. I just don't get it.

Several of the first episodes are sub-par. That's a problem with getting into a show.

Clearly.

And no one ever said it. I had no idea what this thing was about.

Harvery Birdman, Attorney at Law?

It's about Harvery, a Birdman, who is an Attorney at Law.

I mean, it's really not that hard to pick up on. Like the show "Cheers." It's about a bar.

Uhhh... isn't this the thing that you constantly QQ about whenever Alex or I or anyone else talks about the beginning of pretty much every good television show ever?

The Wire was top quality right out of the gate.

I never said Birdman was the best show ever or anything. It's one of my favorite 10 (?) animated shows.

All I said was that a show should show flashes of brilliance early before hitting its stride in season 2 and peaking in season 3 or so. You cannot be a good show and have unwatchable episodes, though. And for me, that Shoyu Weenie episode is unwatchable.

Stop hating Hanna Barbera, imo.

Yeah, those first few episodes are abysmal. But later on? Brilliance.

Sigh. I've had the dumb song stuck in my head all day.
