(Dear Adult Swim, if you take Tim and Eric off the air, I'll send you fifty bucks. That should more than cover this "show's" budget. I will send you an addition fifty if you take them out into the street and shoot them each in the face. This should more than cover the cost of their lives, and the richness of their "humor.")
Tim and Eric are to humor what The Mars Volta is to music.

Little tip to POEtvers....don't submit anything Tim and Eric ever because the long standing "it's cool to hate Adult Swim" thing will never end and basically people will 1 star anything Tim and Eric off the front page even if they haven't seen it. Just don't bother. Some people have to be retardedly petty, so there it is.
I like Adult Swim. It's got some awesome awesome stuff - Metalocalypse, Venture Brothers, Home Movies, even The Brak Show. I even like Tim and Eric's earlier efforts in Tom Goes to the Mayor.
Tim and Eric, Awesome Show! is a pile of unfunny shit. If I wanted to see pasty white boys flail around and be 'experimental' I'd start buying art students LSD.
Not even John C. Reilly saved this one.
AS has some nice shows, but this is the worst shit to ever be allowed to air on television.
I think the only reason these idiots still have a show has to involve pictures of some married higher up fucking the secretary
I have never rated a Tim and Eric video that I haven't watched. I wouldn't hate it if it was on basic cable, because it's exactly the amount and style pf funny that you'd expect from 2 drunk friends riffing off each other and making retarded faces. I've seen very few jokes that I couldn't immediately top, and since I can imagine better comedy in real time, watching the show makes life slightly less funny.
+1 star because the artifacts caused by physical damage to the video tape were slightly humorous, proving that this clip can be made funnier by crudely editing out large parts of the master tape and maybe dropping it into a toilet for a few hours.
Oh, I like plenty of things on Adult Swim, just not this. I've watched this show many times, I've really tried to give them a chance, but I've yet to have so much as an involuntary giggle over anything that's ever appeared on one of Tim & Eric's programs. I've tried to watch it from the angle of satire against the volume of low budget public access stuff out there. I've tried to understand it as just being intentionally so stupid as to be funny. But it still doesn't make me laugh. I liken it to roadside boiled peanuts in the south- an "acquired" taste, as they say, and in the case of television I have no intention of drowning myself in unfunny crap and wasting my time for the sake of acquiring the "taste" of this show.
Give me Neil Swaab's Superjail, give me Tony Millionaire's Drinky Crow, give me Venture Brothers season three, give me an off air signal, anything ANYTHING other than Tim & Eric- just don't make me out to be a petty strawman. ;)
I wonn't punish John C. Reilly for the sins of Tim and Eric.
Two stars only because I like John C. Reilly
Tim & Eric always get 5 stars from me to balance out the trainables.
I will use this as a bouncer
I have never heard of this show, and I don't watch Adult Swim. So let me give you my honest, unbiased opinion : This clip is a pile of unfunny dogshit.
This entire episode is excellent
The second season hasn't been up to the same quality as the first.
I really wish people would drop the whole "You only don't like this because you're a brainwashed member of the biased hipster horde" approach. Good for you for liking Tim and Eric: I think it's terrible, for all the reason enumerated on above, but not because of a secret codeword whispered into my ear by the Enemies of Funny. Unless that codeword happened to be in one of their "jokes."
So, are Tim and Eric what passes for absurdist humor these days? If so, how sad.

I hate to five-star this, but there's a war on.
Five stars as a... LAST RESORT!!!
if someone hates you for 1-starring this, i PROMISE it's not because they think you're hip.
Five stars for John C Reiley, bizarre editing, and the unnecessary use of katakana.
John C. Reilly can transcend time and space
I enjoyed this!

There is something so wrong with you if you don't know that this is brilliant.
