A Hospital Show that's ACTUALLY funny
21 August 2010 | by russb216See all my reviews

Seriously, when I watch Scrubs, I literally fall asleep in my chair. The humor is so dry and the acting so stale, the dialogue so predictable that after watching a dozen episodes, I just gave up, realizing that the show was neither dramatic enough nor humorous enough and especially not creative enough for my tastes. (I'm not here to bash Scrubs, it was just the only other hospital comedy I've seen)

But when Children's Hospital comes on: the clever use of politically incorrect humor, the exceptional use of situational, dramatic/tragic, and verbal Irony; the ability to turn what would be a tragic situation into an absolutely hysterical - a purely funny brand of hospital humor. However, it's not a show for everyone, as it may be pushing the boundaries too far for some: perhaps too absurd and too hysterical while often seeming devilish or distasteful - some people don't pick up on the satire or irony too well, but yakno', what can I say? As an Aqua Teen Hunger Force, Venture Bros., Always Sunny, and Futurama fan, I generally appreciate a more absurd, creative, and unpredictable sense of humor.

With the show comes voiceovers that are actually witty and funny, instead of Zach Braff's monotonus and predictable monologues; clever characters, and excellent use of satire, I would highly recommend this to anyone ready to watch with an open mind.
