[adult swim] Pilots: Green Bench vs. Mr. Pickles

Green Bench is a 22-minute live-action pilot about a group of friends who squat in a house, with the intentions of renovating, and then flipping it. things get complicated when one of them becomes romantically involved with a homeless woman. Green Bench comes from the internet sketch comedy group of the same name, and seems like it would be adult swim’s Always Sunny or Workaholics type show. 4/5

from Will Carsola and Dave Stewart of Nick Swardson’s Pretend Time, comes Mr. Pickles it’s like Cujo meets Moral Orel. the story of a young boy and his Satanic rapist murderer dog, Mr Pickles. the father is a telemarketer, the mother is voiced by Brooke Shields, and Grandpa is the only one who knows how evil the dog really is. according to the upfront, the network has already picked this up. 3/5

Green Bench gets my vote. it was funnier, with a better story. Mr. Pickles felt like it was violent, just for the sake of being violent. that shit gets old pretty quick. go here to watch and vote.

    I think I liked Mr. Pickles better. But I think Clint didn’t like Mr. Pickles as much as I did.

  2. Clint Says:

    I thought Mr. Pickles was way better, and am very pleased to hear they picked it up!

    Cujo + Moral Orel … That’s an awesome comparison. We said “What if Morel Orel and Metalocalypse had a baby? It might be this show, about a murderous, Satanic dog and his innocent little-boy owner.”
    5/5 stars, 8.6/10 from me
    5/5 stars, 9 from Carolyn

    as for Green Bench:
    2.6/5 stars from me, 5.8/10
    3/5 stars from Carolyn, 6/10

    So we definitely don’t agree 🙂

    I think this show is demonic. I really am starting to hate family guy and a lot of other shows on adult swim. These are all demonic mind controlling shows made to dull your brain and promote violence. Being funny does not always mean you have to be violent.
