Nourin #08 — World Wide Boobs

That’s probably the first time the show’s made me chuckle in a month.


Well, it was certainly an episode. I wouldn’t be terribly surprised if this was as good as it gets too, which is still extraordinarily lacking. I did chuckle once, probably because I was expecting them to just say W Cup after putting “W Cup” up on screen and they went the extra half an inch beyond that. Oh standards. Where art thou? A more competent show would have taken the focus on the ‘pathetic’ joke character to show some other side of them or give them some sympathetic moment or have everyone learn a valuable lesson about not being jackasses to them all the time or something. No such thing here. Becky is just meant to be the butt of all jokes, and it has long since skirted the line from a joke to genuine hatred of their own character. Likely projected too. 

Anyway, an episode that was almost entirely just Becky, but they realized they were a few minutes short, so ogled Pinky’s breasts for a little bit too. That was kind of the biggest problem with it. Becky’s schtick is one of the less tired and more appropriately overplayed sources of humor in the show (which isn’t saying much), but like the homosexual episode, there was just too much of it all at once, no variety in the jokes, and no purpose or direction whatsoever. Just “here’s twenty minutes of Becky. Are you not entertained?” They’re also starting to move back forward with the visual references, hitting One Piece and Haruhi among others. Note that I didn’t say gags either. They’re still hoping that recognition is enough to make the audience clap excitedly like harp seals. At least throw a damn pie.

    I had no idea riding a goat was so much faster than a scooter. Corn fuel I guess.
