Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

The magic of The Kumars is in the cast members' ability to mix scripted dialogue with their own hilarious brand of slapstick and improv comedy. Often guests are caught off guard by the unpredictability of the actors, who like to gently poke fun at the celebs and whose quick wit and adherence to their slightly exaggerated characters make this show a stand out. A final note: Although the content is mild enough for young teens to watch without much parental concern, it's likely that the subtle, character-related humor won't hold their attention. But adults who can appreciate the show's context will reap hilarious benefits.
