Kidding stars Jim Carrey as Jeff, aka Mr. Pickles, an icon of children's television, a beacon of kindness and wisdom to America's impressionable young minds and the parents who grew up with him - who also anchors a multimillion-dollar branding empire.But when this beloved personality's family - wife, two sons, sister and father - begins to implode, Jeff finds no fairy tale or fable or puppet will guide him through the crisis, which advances faster than his means to cope. The result: a kind man in a cruel world faces a slow leak of sanity as hilarious as it is heartbreaking.

Originally approached this show with much trepidation, if Carrey was gonna do his manic bullshit comedy I was out but luckily he doesnt and this is soooo goood. I hardly even think he's acting he seems so fucked in the head these days. Plus the kids in this are total misanthropic nutjobs which is an unexpected bonus. S1 final episode, my kingdom for a

+ show spoiler

GIF/youtube clip of the Japanese intern, having been told 3 episodes ago by Carrey that "Allah Akbar" means peace or freedom or some shit, suddenly rushing the stage to light the Xmas tree and shrieking "Allah Akbar!" as he pushes a giant button. OHMG. Had to push pause and have a full-blown joy aneurysm all up and down my todger for the next 3 minutes after that

"GIF/youtube clip" in the spoiler looks like a placeholder. Are you going to edit/add it? smile

Haha, it's nothing like Happy! That show has so much violence and things are a lot weirder.

This show is firmly rooted in reality, even if it does do a few puppet scenes. It's a family drama with comedy, it's still good to watch though.

Sure, it's a family drama.

If you're in the Manson family.

It aint exactly Little House on the Prairie.

Well if we're comparing Happy! to Kidding, it really is a family drama.

I meant anyway, it's drama about a family. Which it objectively is.

Oh fork, you cracked the code. Rocky_Rock_Rockbottom is actually Chris Rock. It all makes sense.
