How about it being as much fun as having your head amputated with a rusty spoon? And being headless is about the only way you can derive any enjoyment from such a vile, trite, pointless, dehumanizing, immoral, vulgar and worthless chunk of sewage? :)

Just MHO, of course...

If anything, I'm not harsh enough, but the PG format of this board prevents me from fully expressing the depths of my revulsion regarding this piece of [expletive deleted].

Okay, so maybe I'm being too generous. ;) After all, I only watched five minutes of the first show and about three minutes of the second, but it's not for me. And no, it isn't because I'm prudish. I just didn't "get it". I'll take Ren & Stimpy any day. :p

The first show was originally released on the net and included full frontal nudity as one of its prime selling points (pun intended). This was later removed by the wussy Scifi channel as proof of thier Supreme Wussyness...

Actually, that would probably be proof of their desire to stay in business. ;)

I despise this show along with the other crappy, to put it nicely, SCIFI programs like Scare Tactics, Mad Mad House, and Tremors. They are all cheap trash and easy for the channel to churn out. They could have taken the money wasted on these and used it to produce the final season of Farscape that they had promised. That was a quality show, IMO.

If you like those shows, don't take offense, you're entitled to your opinion, I just think they are a waste of time and brain cells.

Well the thing is, TTR KNOWS its not quality, provocatinve and intriguing tv! It proudly sells itself as adult humor for a young adult male demographic! Its COMEDY folks! Who cares if its demoralizing or any of the other stuff Shadow mentioned? Its supposed to be funny and from what ive seen lots of people in the demographic agree that it succeeds at that! :cool:

I don't find it even remotely funny. I find it sick and horrible and offensive with not one single thing to recommend it in the slightest.

I saw the short that started it all. It was part of a festival of shorts special on SCIFI. I wanted to see a fullscreen version of 405 the Movie, so I had to suffer through all the other cr@p as well. Words cannot express the depth of my repugnance for what I saw. I've also caught a few of the commercials on SCIFI which lead me to believe that the show is just as bad as the short... if not worse.

Tripping the Rift is funny, but rude. It makes no sense, and I find myself replused at one point, then laughing at another. But my final conclusion is that they should have done something else with the time and money.

Is it suppossed to make sense?

Oh course it doesn't make sense! It's the SCIFI's first comedy since LEXX!

Humorous...at times. Enlightening; I think NOT! However, in an odd, way I appreciated the Evil Clown Empire. Teh beauty pagent ep and the reality show were semi okay.
