    This could be either hilariously subversive or accidentally, obnoxiously jingoistic - or just plain garbage but I'm intrigued if nothing else. Directed by a producer of Archer, and is produced by Lord & Miller so there's some chance it won't completely miss its mark. The writer's CV isn't exactly bursting with comedy scripts mind you (his first credit was 2005's Doom, yikes)

    its like a cut scene from American Dad, looks like something that might have been edgy in the 90's or early 2000's , I would have thought that style of humour is played out

    A belief in gender identity involves a level of faith as there is nothing tangible to prove its existence which, as something divorced from the physical body, is similar to the idea of a soul. - Colette Colfer

    Yeah, was thinking Team America myself. Could really go either way.

    Do NOT ask me how I define the terms "man", "woman", "male" or "female" when you reply to this post. You know the answer and it's probably irrelevant to the discussion :)

    At first I thought it was Brock from Venture Bros.

    I watched the first ten minutes and wasn't enjoying. Does it get any better?

    If you didn't like the first 10, you prob won't enjoy the rest. Similar brand of comedy and insanity.

    I liked it. It's very stupid a lot of the time, but it knows it too. Plenty of references and nods, got the laughs I wanted from it.
