Critic Reviews for The Oblongs: Season 1

All Critics (18) | Top Critics (10)

The Oblongs is premiering three times in one night, in hopes of getting an audience. Isn't that funny? It could be about as big a laugh as you'll get.

The family's biggest handicap is that it isn't funny, even though Will Ferrell and Jean Smart supply the parents' voices.

The Oblongs" on the WB packs a one-two punch: sick and funny. Sick, sick, sick. And yet, I'm obliged to say, demented, twisted and wickedly funny.

I applaud the show's robustly anticorporate satire, but I admit to discomfort at the sight of Dad spanking a kid with his head.

The Oblongs is funny, sometimes very funny.

This is wicked, daring satire.
