“Unsupervised” Unimpressive

You’d think an animated series that features the voices of Justin Long, Kristen Bell, Fred Armisen (SNL), David Hornsby (It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia), Romany Malco (40 Year Old Virgin), and the gang from It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia helming the project would be a dream come true. Even with all of that talent, Unsupervised expels its boring mess of teenage desperate jokes we heard back in high school.

The basic plot of Unsupervised is as basic as it gets. Two teenagers live unsupervised while they try their hardest to fit in at school. And the only way to find any of the jokes humorous in between said basic plot would to huff paint. A lot of paint. I just don’t understand how the brains behind It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia could produce a series that’s so bland! It’s as if the writers were unsupervised (zing!). Take all of the unfunny parts of Beavis and Butthead and you’ve got an episode of Unsupervised.

He just said erection and 69! Forced boundary-pushing is so hilarious!

Is it true that Boldy Going Nowhere, a sci-fi comedy about the day to day life of a captain of an intergalactic spaceshipwas shelved presumably for this bowl of animated crap? I’m not sure. But I can’t imagine it’ll be unshelved when Unsupervised is cancelled after it’s first season. Then again, when was the last time Fox cancelled a bad show?
