Unsupervised's two stars

"Unsupervised" review by Suzanne
Premieres Thursday, January 19 10:30pm e/p on FX

"Unsupervised" is about two teens that, despite their awful lives, have a lot of optimism. They're not very bright, and neither is anyone else in the show. It's the usual sitcom stuff - stupid people doing stupid things.  This is not too surprising given that it's from the people who write and act in "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia", which is also about stupid people doing stupid and gross things. They sent me three episodes, and I think I laughed once.

I don't know how they got such amazing actors to do the voices in the show. Three very impressive actresses - Kristen Bell, Alexa Vega, and Sally Kellerman - voice Megan, Christina, and Principal Stark. Maybe they think it's funny, too.

In my opinion, this show tries very hard, but it's just not funny. Teens will probably love it. It's very gross. It's like a combination of Beavis and Butthead and King of the Hill, but not as funny as either of those shows. I love most of FX's dramas, but not most of their comedies. I like Archer, and Wilfred, but that's about it.

Check it out - maybe you're not as picky as I am, and you'll like it. Somehow, though, I doubt it.

Unsupervised, a new FX Animated Comedy about optimistic best friends who try to navigate the harsh landscape of teenage life. Thursday, Jan. 19 only on FX.

Unsupervised is an animated, half-hour comedy about two eternally optimistic best friends "Gary" and "Joel," who are navigating the harsh landscape of adolescence and trying to do what's right despite having no parental guidance whatsoever. Gary's father took off years ago and left him with his absentee stepmom, while Joel's elderly parents remain unseen and uninvolved. And the adults that are actually present in Gary and Joel's lives are anything but role models. At first glance, Gary and Joel's world may be bleak but their worldview is bright as they guide themselves through life with each other to depend on.

Unsupervised features the voices of Justin Long as "Gary," David Hornsby as "Joel," Kristen Bell as "Megan," Rob Rosell as "Russ" and Romany Malco as "Darius." Recurring voices include Kaitlin Olson as "Carol" and "Danielle," Fred Armisen as "Martin," Alexa Vega as "Christina," and Sally Kellerman as "Principal Stark." Guest voices include Dave Foley as "Darren," Maggie Wheeler as "Pam" and Glenn Howerton in a variety of supporting roles.
