Is It Any Good?

Kids say (2 ):

While the show's overall plot bears some resemblance to that of The Matrix, what makes it unique is the combination of live-action improvisational comedy and visual effects to create a campy cyberworld. Most of the characters are quirky and exhibit silly and/or crude behavior in an attempt to generate laughs. There are also some simplistic moral lessons about the importance of friendship and the significance of being part of a noble cause.

Although the show's unlikely hero becomes more likeable, the truth is that Fat Guy Stuck in Internet is only mildly funny. It's got its share of strong material, too, including marijuana smoking and strong sexual innuendo. This, combined with some of the rough humor, makes it too strong for tweens and iffy for young teens. But older viewers may be intrigued by its creative approach to mature comedy.
