My history with Drawn Together is...complex. I grew up with this show, and it was one of my favorites at the age of 13. However, our family did not have cable when the second half of season 3 aired, and I still have yet to watch the movie. I recently saw a couple of episodes on Hulu, and...wow. I never thought a show would divide me this much internally. The toilet humor is definitely more than tolerable, even while they lampshade it, but...when the show's funny, it's hilarious. It will make you fall off the seat laughing during one minute and fall off the seat vomiting during the next. It's like the writers had several really good jokes in each episode, but they weren't enough to fill the entire half-hour timeslot so they filled the rest with toilet humor. I guess the main thing that people are divided over is whether the several good jokes make the whole thing worth watching or not.
My favorite character is definitely Ling-Ling, as I love Japanese psychopaths. I find him to be an effective parody of Pokemon, although he doesn't really parody anime in general as much as I think the writers hoped. If they gave him a mech and and an unrealistically proportioned girlfriend, then we'd have something there.
Captain Hero, on the other hand...when I was 13, I was completely revolted by him. However, now that I have been exposed to many low Unsympathetic Comedy Protagonists
from shows like Its Always Sunny In Philadelphia
and Married With Children
, I have to say that I'm starting to develop a liking for him. He's definitely an acquired taste.
Overall, I guess I like it. I'm not sure if I'll ever get the courage to watch the last half of season three or the movie, but it's not impossible. A couple of my friends have started to develop a small liking for the show, so maybe I will see it someday. Until then, that's my current take on what is possibly the most divisive cartoon show since Renand Stimpy
