It's a good animated comedy

Good show. Reminds me of living in Lawrenceburg, TN. For someone who doesn't really like cartoons, I have to say I'm impressed.

Failed attempt to be funny

The show is kind of lame. Its all dumb jokes, excessive profanity, drugs use, and sexual activity all for the purpose eventually not makeing you laugh. Some shows can be all that and make you laugh but this is just a over the top lame and mediocre comedy, not a shred of humor.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (2 ):
Kids say (5 ):

Unsupervised takes the germ of a decent idea -- two teenage boys trying to make their way through high school with absentee parents -- and beats the life out of it with a series of increasingly infantile jokes and frequent swearing. It's not that infantile jokes can't be funny, or a well-placed swear word effective. But piled one atop another at a rapid-fire pace, these elements desensitize the viewer, forcing a quick grab for the remote to avoid any further abuse.

Truly wasting some great comedic talent (Fred Armisen, Kristen Bell), Unsupervised is a shrill and immature comedy lacking in enough creativity to earn much of a recommendation, even for adults mature enough to handle the material.
