What's wrong with this review?

Let us know why you think this review is inappropriate.

Reviewing a show that has lasted this long is difficult.

This show has been hilarious and it has been terrible. It had many seasons no one believed it would actually be renewed after. And it's brought us some of the funniest comics and comedy writers working in TV and movies. And some of the worst.

No one really agrees on what were the funniest moments, seasons or casts. And that may be the true brilliance of this show. The thing that makes it uncancellable. If you wait a season or two you will find something you like.
