    I've had two people tell me this show is great and I should watch it. So here's my question:

    Did you find the previews for it funny?

    Because I thought those made it look absolutely 100% unfunny. So are the previews inaccurate, or is the show not my style of humor?

    Stella sucks.

    Michael Ian Black is dragged down with this stinker.

    Based on the previews, it doesn't seem funny at all.

    I don't get this.
    I don't get Mr. Show.
    And I don't get British humor either.

    Give me stand up anyday.
    That Mind of Mencia show looks promising though.

    Stella is an odd bird. They performed at my school, they were entertaining, but hit and miss humor wise. A bunch of my friends got their shorts DVD and I watched that, still hit and miss.

    And then something happened, I'm not quite sure what. I was doing work on the computer while my roommate was watching their DVD and I was just listening to the audio and it was hilarious! All of a sudden some switch was flipped in my brain and I loved Stella.

    I liked the premiere, I think their kind of "Live-Action Loony Tune" style comedy is helped by having a bigger budget and a better, more dynamic camera. It's not for everyone though, some will find it hilarious, other's with think its just stupid.

    The show was ok. It wasn't that funny. However, I do really enjoy the theme music for the show.

  12. I thought the advertisements for the show were completely unfunny, and found the show itself to be absolutely hilarious.

    Michael Ian Black is a funny man.

    I thought the music was good too, but can you tell me, is it funk rock or is it funk rock?

    Did not laugh a single time during the entire show. Then again, I have maybe laughed two or three times during the new Family Guys but the old Futurama episodes still get a rise out of me. To me Stella is the type of show you just watch because its there, not for any interest. Kind of like how kids drink booze because its there.

    Have not seen it yet but i find michael ians black style of humor funny when he does stuff on I love the 90s or w/e but i havent found him funny in any scripted things.
  18. I'm glad I'm not the only one who thought that.
  19. sounded like strait up funk to me... but then again i am white,lol

    stella is the funniest show ive seen in a long long time, and mind of mencia looks funnier. i cant stop laughing every time i hear his stand up.

    How could this show be any better than Shorties Watchin Shorties? They cancel Shorties, and feed me this garbage?!?! Comedy Central has gotten pretty lame these last few months, the only good programming they have is when they run movies like Jay and Silent Bob or Denis Leary standup late at night with no editing. :D
