Bordertown: Season 1 Reviews

January 11, 2016
Let's get right to it: "Bordertown" is funny.

Bud and Ernesto are each so one-dimensional that they seem caricatures not of the immigration issues but of a liberal, and very limited view, of the immigration issue.
January 4, 2016
Don't worry: The terrific, boundary-busting comedy is an equal-opportunity barb tosser, taking aim at anyone who reduces serious issues to sound bites.

Satire administered with a Wiffle ball bat. A dull thud, where there should be a sting.

The show is satirizing smug, middle-class white folks who resent any threat to their status quo, but the only viewpoints presented... are those of smug, middle-class white folks and smug, middle-class liberals who resent the white folks' resentment.

The timing couldn't be much better for Bordertown's belated debut, even if it's pretty much Family Guy all over again in terms of the corpulent protagonist, out-of-body pop culture references and some really abhorrent jokes.

Azaria, usually remarkably versatile, has done the character no favors by choosing a voice I'd describe as Simpsons Fanboy Imitates Comic Book Guy. Worst. Vocal Decision. Ever.

Oh, it is so excruciatingly bad in exactly all the ways you would imagine.

Hentemann, who executive produces with Seth MacFarlane, cuts too wide a swath along the way -- despite having a sizable target, Bordertown sprays its pot shots all over the place.

Bordertown, at least initially, lands on the right side of the fence.
