Movie Reviews

(5 out of 5 stars)

"You're hard-pressed to find genuine avant-garde on television, but this definitely counts. Wonder Showzen has made me laugh harder than anything in my entire life, except perhaps George Carlin.

A few of the episodes in Season 2 have very low re-play value, and are almost as annoying as they are inventive, but even they are worth watching once. The rest, however, are keepers through and through. (And the same could be said for Season 1, too, actually.)

(Also: one of the reviewers compared the Clarence's "word on the street" routines with Tom Greene and some other flavor-of-the-month's "word on the street" bits, but this is not a very apt comparison, for reasons that will quickly become clear after watching them.)"
Even better than the first season

"Wonder Showzen is a cult hit, and if you're reading this review, there's a good chance that you're part of the cult. I'm not quite sure how to write a review that would do this DVD justice, but I will say that this show is awesome and I like this season even more than the first one. The writing is sharper, the humor is more demented, and the kids are (for lack of a better phrase) in the zone.

If you happened to catch the tail end of a Wonder Showzen episode or have only seen one or two episodes and are on the fence about buying this DVD - do yourself a a favor and buy it; actually, the power of Christ compels you to buy it. Although there are only 7 episodes, each one is hilarious and they'll have you rolling on the floor for weeks.

For those looking for some sort of comparison, I guess I would say the closest thing is TV Funhouse. However, Wonder Showzen is to TV Funhouse what Sin City is to the Care Bears."
Sick, utterly sick.

"And brilliant - quite possibly one of the most subversive shows on TV. It's a shame that MTV2 doesn't seem to have ordered a third season, I'd definitely watch more of this."
Season 2: Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger

"If you watched 3 minutes of any one show you might think this is the worst show on TV. It takes a little longer to appreciate the complexity of the underlying ideas the show brings.

The creators are smart, the kids are fantastic (gotta love Trevor and Beat Kids), and the subjects are relevant. I think they must have been shocked when they were green lit for a second season. They played this one like they knew there was no way they would be asked for a third.

Tackling issues like our constitution and the subversion of it, education, gun control, war, freedom of speech, slavery, racism, the meat market, TV and the common American idiot. They present these ideas for the MTV generation. A person can easily understand (and laugh), but are left with the overall message the story's portray, obviously or subconsciously.

They make you laugh, they make you sick (even the cartoons), they get you talking and they make you think."
