Great show for Mature viewers

The show is hilarious, not to much for little kids a lot of scenes of extreme graphic violence which I'm surprised is allowed to be aired with the TV-14 rating, also some indecent language, sexual situations are abundant, and the humor wont entertain kids. Keep the kids off this show more for mature sophisticated teens and adults. Its great to see more great animation of Comedy Central like Futurama and South Park.

Ugly Americans

Suprisingly funny. Not a Grade A show, but definitely watchable.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:

Kids say (2 ):

For most people, Ugly Americans will be an acquired taste -- and might even trigger a gag reflex. After all, jokes involving a restaurant in Hell that serves unbaptized baby arm soup with a raspberry coulis or a rehabilitated zombie who takes a job washing windows at a brain storage facility (and ultimately can't control his cravings) aren't for everyone.

But those with a soft spot for the bizarre and an appreciation for hand-drawn details will probably feel differently about this uncommon horror-comedy. And it does have its moments, like when Mark advises a cereal-crunching Randall that he has a little something on his face, and Randall realizes, after wiping it off, that it was an actual piece of his face -- and a rather large one at that. But is it funny? Well...yes. But it's not for everyone.
