Pilot Review: Brothers

To make a long story short, this is a half hour comedy that is impressively lacking in humour and is borderline offensive to black people, football players, wheelchair users, Alzheimer’s sufferers and people with gaps in their teeth. Ooo – isn’t it funny how he keeps forgetting stuff. Um, no. Not really. If it WERE funny, I might make a more considered post about the complex issue of using stereotypes in comedy, but frankly that really would be giving way too much time to what is just a very cheesy, unfunny messy comedy that will hopefully not be on the air too long.
