Is It Any Good?

Is it truly possible to shock an audience that knows they're signing up to be shocked? Like many shows and movies before it, Farzar's one cheap trick is to push the boundaries of taste. It's similar to Family Guy but with about 1% of the cleverness (if that's mathematically possible) and none of the absurdism. The problem isn't necessarily that the show is offensive, but that it is incredibly bad at turning shock value into actual comedy. The room full of creators threw whatever they could at the wall to see if anything sticks. The thrown substances only get grosser and grosser, but the laughs never come.
