Anyone else catch the premier two episodes of this new PBS comedy? There’s a reason the character above is holding his nose–it stank.
Tom and Ray Magliozzi, co-hosts of NPR’s popular Car Talk, lend their voices and their radio alter-egos Click and Clack the Tappet Brothers to this animated sitcom. As much as I enjoy their radio show, an amusing blend of information and entertainment, I couldn’t muster as much as a chuckle watching the lame antics of their two-dimensional selves.
Jokes fell flat, the characters surrounding the Tappet brothers in their garage/radio studio were uninteresting (in their quirks and their voice characterizations) and the stories were just so-so. The biggest problem was the overwhelmingly unfunny dialog.
