Oh my gosh, yes. I've seen that show.

I admit I didn't like it at first. But I watched a couple more episodes and ended up really liking it. The stuff they do is crazy and hilarious. And though some of the stuff can seem pretty mean, on the other hand it just shows how close friends they are...that they can mess with each other and not let that ruin their friendship. Take that as you will.

One of my favorite moments is this challenge where, in a supermarket, two of the friends have to put a balloon on a person without that person noticing them doing it and whoever gets noticed first loses. But in the middle of one of guys, I think it was Murr, trying to do that on their target, a random passerby noticed what they were doing...and joined in on it by managing to put a balloon on someone without them noticing. I just loved that.

In general, I like most of the challenges/pranks, as well as the punishments and running gags. Like...

Punishments:
  • Sal's VR punishment where he plays a VR game...but when he gets out of it, the set he's in looks exactly like the game, complete with two creepy sisters...and Benjamen Cat
  • Sal going through a Haunted House
  • The inside of Joe's home completely wrapped in present wrappers, including the furniture and fruits
  • Q "selling" his "stuff" that's not actually his in an aunction only to ask to not sell it...and then the tires of his actual jeep getting sold
  • Murr's eyebrows getting shaved off, as much as that is equally pitying
  • Sal's sister getting "married" to Murr
  • Sal having to jump off a helicopter into a lake
  • Sal being strapped to the ground and being surrounded by one of his worse fears...cats

Running Gag:
  • Joe shouting "LAAAAAARRYYYYY!"
  • Murr saying "I am not a furret!" whenever the rest call him one
  • Benjamen Cat, whenever they don't use a real cat to scare Sal
Though I haven't watched much recently and even then, I actually haven't seen a lot of their episodes, especially the older ones. But I do love the ones I've seen. So many moments that are just so funny.

Also Q pronouncing "shiitake mushrooms" as well... shit-take mushrooms because he legitamately didn't know.

Well I certainly didn't expect to see anyone in here who knows of it and likes it in here either.

...

Wait, there's a movie?! -Googles it- Wow. Congrats to them. Now that I know it exists, I'm interested to see it. And maybe see some episodes again. Except I have a ton of backlog in anime and games I wanna go through so it'll be a long while.

Oh, another thing I like is their intro, at least the ones I've seen, the episodes/series/seasons that have trivia on the side, and punishments that follow up on either previous challenges or previous punishments. For the former, the "punishment" that comes to mind in where the crew trick Sal into thinking he just ended the show through breaking the law in the form of "getting" the nose of a somewhat important statue after having a hearing about it...only to show, no, the show's not over and the "laywer" he talked to was just an actress in on it.
