IMDB Rating – 4.8/10 – Pretty Terrible. Seems like i’m not the only one who hates it.
Bordertown – Wouldn’t even bother watching it if there was nothing else on!
So you may be asking, what makes this show so bad?
To think, I actually had ‘quite’ high hopes for this show when it first aired. I couldn’t be any more wrong really. It was released by FOX and is meant to be a comedy with adult humor, much like Family Guy, in fact it was actually written by writers of Family Guy, Mark Hentemann and Seth McFarlane.
If you don’t know of it, watch the trailer below:
The comedy follows two families living in a Southwest desert town on the United States–Mexico border.
I have come to realize that this is a ridiculously unfunny version of others of its genre. I can’t tell where it is meant to be funny in parts, not to mention how poor and cheap the animation loks. Well, there is one thing going for this show, it is that bad, it actually makes it funny. Basically a rip off of Family Guy, Cleveland Show, American Dad etc.
It’s not just me, here are reviews from IMDB.
“Bordertown is clearly an attempt by Seth MacFarlane to milk whatever money FOX has left to give him”
“Fox has had its share of bottom feeder programming. We can always count on something really, really bad from them at least once a year. But if there was an award for the worst show that ever aired on television, this brain fart would have a case full of awards.”
Some people actually liked it though!
“Lots & lots of laughs – I burst out a few times :-)”
“The show is extremely smart. The jokes just keep on coming, and jaded as I am by TV comedy, this was fresh, smart and deeply insightful (at times), not to mention that it made me outright laugh at times. Great show, the art work takes some getting used to at first, but it’s getting better with every episode much like any animated comedy show.”
Should You Watch it?
It’s very fair to say this show is not for everyone. I would say there is no point in watching it, just stick to Family Guy. But if you immensely love the works on Seth McFarlane and there is nothing else on TV, you might want to give this a little try.
Have you seen it? If you have rate Bordertown of of 5 stars below!
