Yes, But Jokes About Allende and Geothermal Heating Are Always Fresh


"There are things that should have been popular but were not: the Allende government, geothermal home heating and Arrested Development... Each week, the script kept adding on — almost as if the writers had an inside bet to see how far and wide the parody could stretch. ...The writers seemed so intent on adding arch subplots that the narrative never settled into an even flow. The humor is both deadpan and hyperactive, which wears thin."
