Review: TED

As the result of a childhood wish, John Bennett’s teddy bear, Ted, came to life and has been by John’s side ever since – a friendship that’s tested when Lori, John’s girlfriend of four years, wants more from their relationship.

As usual Seth MacFarlene comes through with raunchy and rude comedy with a lot of wit just using a Teddy Bear. Mark Walhberg plays the big kid with a live Teddy Bear, and they do the craziest things, just like big kids. It has its very funny moments and you can tell its got a touch of Family Guy humor in the movie, and I love how they bring Flash Gordon into the movie. Surprisingly the one thing that is off is Mark Walhberg, I’m used to seeing him as the less talk more action type of guy, not the goofy comedy guy even if it is R-rated, he just didn’t fit acting like a kid but still it was a very funny movie.

Better Off Ted – The End

BetterOffTed

From turning co-workers into human popsicles to converting ordinary fruit into a military weapon, nothing is off limits at the company depicted in this satire. Better Off Ted gives us a birds eye view into the clockworks of a soulless corporation, Veridian Dynamics. As the corporation makes technological advancements, morals and human rights are heavily neglected. Don’t drop your kids off at the Veridian daycare, unless you don’t mind them doubling as janitors!

I tend to love corporate humor and too bad this is the end of the show, no longer renewed for another season. At least season 2 ended with a bang, they took a lot of risks but made the story that much more interesting. Veridian Dynamics is one messed up company turning every idea into a weapon and treating their employees like machines, Ted is there to make the company happy with all the new products but also make sure the employees feel loved and don’t breakdown. So many different angles and funny characters, I love how Veronica is the riduclously powerful woman who thinks people are only useful at work and they should make the company more successful. The story developed more in season 2 between all the characters not just revolving on Ted, and there was a lot more to be seen but too bad it ended, but for those who haven’t seen it its a comedy really worth watching and very entertaining.

Better Off Ted – Out Takes (NSFW)

This is probably one of the funniest out takes I have seen, this is one show that isn’t afraid to cross the line. I was busting up laughing from this two minute clip, I really do wish they did this during a full episode, it would be hilarious.

I can’t believe that I only heard of this show recently, Ted works for Veridian Dynamics, a company which makes any product for anyone if they are paid for it, nothing is off limits. Ted is the nice guy with his team of misfit scientists always making the amazing product, and Veronica is his hot but insane corporate boss and believes feelings is a waste of time. The comedy is non-stop completely making fun of corporate culture, and then the team inside are hilarious, a comedy I wasn’t expecting, it was about to be canceled but it got renewed for the second season which is playing now and more to come, a comedy that will get you laughing.
