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.

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.

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...
