Hi

If any of you guys liked (or didn't like) Tom Goes to the Mayor, the guys behind it - Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim, are coming out with a new show. It's being produced by Bob Odenkirk, and it looks like it's going to be a lot like the videos on their website http://www.timanderic.com

I kinda always thought their other stuff was better than TGTTM (although I loved that show), and it looks like this show will have a bunch of guests like Tom did. So far in the clips online are David Cross, Zack Galifinakis, Bob Odenkirk and a bunch bunch more.

Trailer:

I keep going back and forth on the cross dressing tv anchor thing TGTTM from repulsed to amused.

I hated tom goes to the mayor, and I really don't like the non animation shows that are coming soon to adult swim. Adult swim shouldn't be some kind of comedy central pilot graveyard. That said, I really want to open a bottle of beer on that black guy's snaggle tooth.

I am very excited for this, I love TGTTM, but this looks like it will have more variety, which is a very good thing.

I kind of understand where you're coming from with the non-animation point, but where else could this kind of surreal comedy survive if it wasn't on adult swim? MTV2 canceled Wonder Showzen (I think), and Stella only lasted one season on Comedy Central. I am perfectly happy with adult swim becoming the new home of anti-tv tv.

I'm interested in it mainly because any Tim and Eric bit that involves retarded CGI and/or 80s-era TV graphic effects I find absolutely hilarious for some reason. (I could watch the TGTTM opening 10 times in a row and not get sick of it.)

I'm also finding myself laughing at the "awkward"-themed bits too. I guess I've been brainwashed.

This reminds me a lot of Mr. Show (only with a more absurdist angle), and from what I have seen it's funnier than Tom Goes to the Mayor (and I love TGTTM).

the only time TGTTM was particularly funny was when Bob Odenkirk made brief appearances as some kind of lost Mr.Show sketches. If this show can stick to that liek the trailer it may not be bad at all

Basically... RUN.

Ugh. I have a friend that worked on this show, and while he loved Tom Goes to the Mayor, he said this show was pretty much crap. It's apparently nothing like TGTTM, and more avant garde.

I hope that he's wrong, but I'm not getting my expectations up. Though, if it does turn out that you like it, you'll be pleased to know that it's all ready been picked up for a second season. Strange since the first season hasn't even aired yet.

That's awesome, and Tom Goes to the Mayor wasn't even remotely avant garde. If you've ever had to deal with local government, that show was completely spot-on and made perfect sense.

the whole premiere episode is available on the adult swim fix!

I really enjoyed it. It's not for people who are looking for a lot of plot and character development. If you're in a mood to laugh, you will laugh. If you're going to try to be a sourpuss and compare it to TGTTM, you might not laugh. It realizes it's ridiculous and runs with it. I like that in a show

Well, after watching the first episode I can safely say that I this show. I especially liked the Dr. Brule bits. I've only seen one episode of Tom Goes to the Mayor (the bassfest/darn one) and I thought it was decent, but I never got into it for some reason. I'll definitely be checking it out more now though.

But I feel so out of the loop since I haven't seen much of TGTTM or any other stuff of Tim and Eric's. Seems like I'm missing out on some good stuff...what is "rats off to ya"?

Technically season one is more like half a season (10 episodes), so it's not a big extension.

This was great, looking forward to seeing more. I really think Tim and Eric's talents are suited to these quick micro-sketches. It has more bizzare ideas coming at a faster pace than TGTTM, and I think that will help it reach a larger audience.

Another episode of TGTTM. Tom creates a hit phrase, but trouble arises! Having trouble finding some sort of link to the episode . Two episodes are on the Fix right now, though. I would love to go to pipe camp.

If this show has the Tim & Eric charm (and awesome guest stars, I need me some more Posehn) then it will be a fantastic show that only 20% of the Adult Swim audience will like.

What the hell did I just watch? Maybe this makes me not on the cutting edge of humor, but I just don't get it. I hated Tom Goes to the Mayor because it was the same crap: unfunny jokes beaten into the ground with a hint of homosexuality.

Maybe the joke needs to be explained to me... why is Bowel funny? Its a Bat-Owl but it also sounds like the thing that manufactures your poop oh i get it ha ha? Seriously.

You thought b'owl was a poop joke? have you ever seen a children's toy commercial? it was a spot on parody, especially the "now b'owl's for BOYS" part. The fact that a hideous bat-owl monster is a toy for little girls is why it's funny. And that look Bob Odenkirk gives as he throws it away? That is the essence of comedy.

Oh. See, I think thats my problem with this show and their old one. For some reason I just don't seem to get it. Even when you explain the joke to me I don't think its funny. Sorry.

I guess that I get it that famous people like the guest stars in the OP need to occasionally just say "gently caress You" to the networks who make them do poo poo that panders to the lowest common denominator, but this poo poo is loving insulting. Why do we need children's toy commercial parodies and awkward local tv personalities when everyone already knows that stuff is stupid?

I'm gonna stick my neck out and say that I actually liked it. My favorite sketches were the ones with Dr. Steve Brule, and the "Time Travel" music video.

I never watched Tom Goes to the Mayor that much, but I could see myself liking that show if they didn't make Tom's character such a punching bag. Since there's nothing like that on here, I think I'll watch this regularly. (I haven't really watched any of AS's newer shows, so that's saying a lot.)

I heard Tim and Eric on a radio show last week, and they have some awesome guest stars lined up for this season, I hope they're all used as well as Reilly.
