"Tim & Eric's Bedtime Stories" review by Sundi 9/17/14
Premieres 12:15 am Thursday night/Friday morning 9/19 on Adult Swim (Cartoon Network)

In true Adult Swim fashion, Tim and Eric’s Bedtime Stories is weird… but in a good way. Half satire, half Twilight Zone-throwback, the anthology show exhibits exactly what Adult Swim does best: question what you are experiencing and wonder if you should take it seriously.

The half-hour show features two dark, twistedly comic vignettes starring writers/directors Tim Heidecker & Eric Wareheim. With each installment running only about eleven minutes apiece, it doesn’t take long to get the rhythm of the show -- funny, weird, funny, weird.

Like a lot of Adult Swim programming, Bedtime Stories isn’t for a broad audience. There are some pretty macabre themes running throughout, and the humor is black, at best. If you like Children’s Hospital, or Harvey Birdman, Attorney at Law, then you will like this show. If you don’t enjoy the silly or the absurd, this show is probably not for you.

I like this show as a filler, but it is not really my brand of programming. Let me know what you think!
