Clone High is my least favorite series I watched all the way through.
Normally, if I don't like a show, I drop it after about four episodes. But there was something about this one that kept me going, however. As it showed promise for a good series.
Unfortunately, it wasn't. They had the horrible habit of the Fairly Oddparents Method of humor. Take a joke, and beat it into the ground with such force that by the end, it isn't funny. The Bloody Hilarious
bits were also severely overused and got tired after awhile. This sort of thing would be tolerable, if the majority of the show's humor wasn't like this!
A lot of people also like the musical episode...I don't. The visuals and story were fine, but the songs were terrible and Scudworth and Cleo were Out of Character.
Don't get me wrong though. The series isn't my favorite, but it would be unfair to call it "bad". This is a good premise, and there was certainly more potential for many seasons with it. Also, these are great characters. Completely the opposite of their historical coutnerparts, the fun comes from them trying to be their predecessors and failing. It's Boys from Brazil
all over again.
So I do get the hype. I just didn't fall into it.
The funniest episode is where Gandhi gets ADD. The comedic timing and historical references were spot-on, and the way it is handled was just as funny. The repeated jokes were also varied with each repetition.
I don't necessarily "hate it", so I simply say I don't recommend it. Or if I have to, I guess I recommend it to the Seth Mc Farlane
crowd or fans of Lord and Miller's other work.
