Anyoen like this show? I thought it was decent, but doing the animation in Flash was perhaps not the best decision. It doesn't look that great. It's Kelsey Grammar, and he's always entertaining, though.

I agree about the image quality. At times the shakiness was really distracting. Kelsey was awesome as usual and there were plenty of good moments. I loved the drunk guy.

I think they tried too hard to be another Harvey Birdman. The only thing I was left wondering is how much they paid Kelsey to do this thing.

Well, he's got an executive producer credit, which generally means he owns a piece of the show. Posted Image

Not bad; I'll watch it again. The animation looked particularly bad coming after Ren & Stimpy, which while ugly, is smoothly animated and imaginitive.

I'll keep tuning in, atleast through the summer wasteland. My favorite moment by far was went he first looks in the mirror after changing and goes: "Well, shit!"

That, and the deliciously horrible way he brushes off his mother.

I was a little surprised at this because every time I have watched a movie on this station it is HEAVILY censored..I wonder if it just escaped the censors???

Gary the Rat saying "Shit" doesn't hold a candle to a cartoon cat sucking shit from a rat's sphincter and then later on receiving anal sex from a chiuahua. The censors took the night off.

I didn't find the show funny at all. I agree that it's a pale copy of HARVEY BIRDMAN.

I didn't find the show much like harvey Birdman. Sure, it's an animated courtroom comedy, but Gary as a character is nothign like Harvey. Harvey just seems to wing all his cases (pun intended). I've scertainly never seen him rackign his brain about a closing arguement. Gary seems ot be a competent and slick lawyer, rather than just tryign to be one.

OK , I give up . What happened to episode 1 . Every listing shows Thursday's show as episode 2 . Did TNN tie the pilot to their name change somehow and therefore had to kill it ? Or did I miss something a couple of weeks ago?

Gary continues having its funny moments, but I think the show is too callous for its own good. Some stuff was great (check your cat, sir?), but other stuff, namely the whole exterminator plotline and the random deaths didn't work any better than last week. In fact, I think they're worse.

I agree about the exterminator plotline it adds nothing and goes nowhere I still think the show is amusing

I think last night's ep was the best yet. No callous random killings of characters, and the exterminator's part was reduced. Plus it was more of a character-based comedy than the previous ones.
