    Commercial made it look pretty good

    by BrandLoyalist

    I think Mike Judge just barely edges out Trey Parker as the comedy writer with the truest and most insightful sense of American culture

    'Idiocracy' never got the attention it deserved. The first time I sat down and started watching it I was crying with laughter. Mike Judge is awesome.

    NBC's Office is the the truest and most insightful look at American culture but doesn't find the humor in BBC's office. Gets his news and opinion from Daily Show but hates O'reily as biased. Thinks Family Guy is random but loves Scrubs. Brandloyalist thinks Star Trek was "awesome" and unfairly criticized but "has problems" with Batman's "third act." Everything Mike Judge has done has been genius, original and subversive and comparing ANYTHING Mike Judge has done (going all the way past Beavis and Butthead to Frog Baseball) to anything media darling Trey Parker has done is comparing a diamond cutter to a sledgehammer where satire is concerned
