Misunderstood

Will Wade has obviously never taken a literature class. Drinky Crow doesn't glorify alcoholism, it makes it hyperbolic. Drinky is guilt ridden and caught in a spiral of self doubt and depression. He alternately makes a stand on pointless issues to prove he is worth something or pretends apathy; he most often fails on both counts because of drinking. He is clearly a "good" person (or bird, as it were) who struggles with an addiction: in one episode is has an all-out battle with his brain as it demands that his body keeps consuming alcohol even though it is dying. He is unwillingly ambivalent and sadly aware of his apathy--he is also recognizes it's booze-ridden source. He feels broken after a string of bad relationships, parental and romantic, and his guilt leads to more drinking. He is surrounded by terrible influences and real-life stress. Uncle Gabby is the perfect enabler, and his wife/girlfriend is the unknowing one. Although the situations are extreme and often disgusting, we see just how twisted Drinky's reality is. Of course he escapes through drinking. This show is about alcoholism in its purest form, and Drinky Crow is far from lovable. However, the show is empathetic towards him as much and anyone can be empathetic towards alcoholics--they try and most often fail against a tide of circumstances that work against them. In the end, however, the cards dealt to Drinky are often a hand he builds for himself. It is a neverendin parade of bad decisions. His good-time buddies, the society around him and his well-intentioned but misunderstanding spouse pushes him to do what he loathes. Yet, in doing so his weakness is on full display. In short, this show is misunderstood. This show is for intelligent adults, for sure, but Will Wade's review is pathetic. It's off the air, but freely available online. If you catch your child watching it, it can be a good opportunity to talk about binge drinking and what it leads to. Watching it with an 18 year old and discussing the main character may be appropriate. Just make sure your kid is smart. This comes from the crowd who produced Morel Orel, another very intelligent and potentially offensive animated show with a message.

Worst show on adult swim. All they do is get drunk and then show graphic images of dead people. You call that a good show?

Ok this is just ridiculous. I present to you, the most pointless and rubbish show ever to be shown on adult swim. This show is basically animals getting drunk and a lot of disgusting violence. First of all, who enjoys this show. It's so bad! Don't watch it. It's a disgrace to comedy and adult swim. Just terrible.

If u like dark humor (like me) this is a funny show

this show is funny; like Metalocalypse; Xavier: Renegade Angel and The Boondocks (other shows i like) most adult swim crap sucks but this is one of thefew funny ones sure it's pretty cynical, violent and swimming in alchohal and drunken driving and sex and is rated TV-MA-V; few episodes (2 out of the 11) are TV-MA it's not for kids but older teens that know binge drinkings isn't OK they can see it

Astonishingly, Embarrassingly Awful; Not for Anyone Who Values Their Brain

There's nothing more embarrassing than someone who desperately wants to be "shocking", and is willing to try as hard as they can just to get some attention. Tony Millionaire's "Maakies" alternative comic strip (and "Saturday Night Live" shorts) have never been particularly funny. As Tony himself says, it consists of him "getting everything off my chest, laughing at the horrors of being alive". This is as dark as dark comedy gets; this is beyond pitch-black. To be honest, it really isn't funny at all. It's just ugly, nasty, and depressing. "The Drinky Crow Show" is a very different subject. Typical scene from "Drinky Crow": Uncle Gabby (Drinky Crow's equally worthless monkey sidekick) pops out of French spy DeBoursay's vagina and makes a hot dog with her placenta. I kid you not. When you're THIS desperate for attention, you're not gonna care if your show is funny or not. And "Drinky Crow" isn't even remotely funny. It's idiotic, juvenile, embarrassing, pathetic, obnoxious, and desperate. It's a waste of cable airwaves, and it's an insult to the intelligence of every living being who is sorry enough to watch it - whether by accident or not. I wouldn't want my DOGS watching this animated abortion. Please - for the love of all that is good and holy - do not support the creators of this monstrosity. Seriously. Just... don't. Go watch crap float around in the toilet. It's better than anything you'll see on this sad, sorry excuse for a cartoon. I mean it. Don't watch it.

'Adult Swim' says it all

This may be a dumb show, which I believe it is, but the warning before the show states that it is not suitable for children under 14. The cartoons on Adult Swim are for adults. So parents, be warned - don't let your kids watch Cartoon Network after 10 PM.
