The first episode was pretty funny. I love both Jack Black and Tim Robbins. I am definitely looking forward to watching more of The Brink.

Just watched the pilot episode, and what an amazing show! Great cast, appealing story, and some funny parts to make this a perfect show to follow ;)

Yes there are some crude jokes, yes its a reference to other movies in the past, but it cloaks an underlying witty satire that many people (critics included) seem to completely miss. If you stay informed with events and politics, this is hilarious. If you don't, you'll miss a lot.

What is wrong with you HBO, very few dark comedy like this one make it to the air and this one did and was exceptionally good and you cancel it?

The Brink is an HBO promoting the American ideal of war using a comedial approach but the truth is the show isn't that funny. The cast is huge but the jokes are boring and overdrawn. Do what you must with this...

Funny. Funny. All-too-true Funny. Political satire at its best. Tim Robbins and Jack Black are great together. Even if it's from opposite sides of the world.

It was really weird in the beginning, but when there's Jack Black, of course. Anyway, it was a pretty good show. I'm not sad that it got concluded/cancelled but it was still a pretty enjoyable show.
