    I have to admit I still laugh everytime I hear the Stinkfinger theme song and I don't even know why....it must be funny.

    But I never watched the show. Was it funny at all? Is it worth investing the time watching at all? Or was Stinkfinger the one and only bright spot?

    I've never seen it replayed anywhere on TV and I can't even find it on the....ahem....file locker sites despite the fact that it's apparently been released on DVD (though didn't look real hard yet) so that makes me think it's a huge piece of caca because no one even bothers pirating it. I mean I can find obscure fucking pilot or canceled shit that never even aired in about 5 minutes online but SotB....it's a ghost....it's like Jack Reacher....can't fucking find it and not sure I want to and might be as equally gay.....

    That's an episode with Gilbert if you want to check out the show.

    Timothy Stack is a talented guy with a real career, but it's really just all throwaway jokes and easy puns, nothing memorable.

    It was very basic, predictable humor..no where near the cleverness of Arrested Development or 30 Rock.

    It had its moments, but not because of the Stork.

    This is the DVD cover art, which is fitting:

    It was a very obvious, hackneyed brand of funny, when it occasionally was. Its worst fault was that it was so corny.

    I liked the HSS when Son of the Beach was on the air, and even then I couldn't watch more than a few minutes of it.

    Timothy Stack was pretty funny on SOTB. He was even more funny when he played washed up actor Timothy Stack on My Name Is Earl. He was usually dressed in his SOTB costume, which was basically an inside joke since very few had ever heard of SOTB.

    Shows how much you know - Howard invented both those shows but didn't copyright them "because he didn't need the hassle". Just like Unplugged and the Osbournes and Fifth Grader. And everything else on Earth.

    The only good show of that whole fucking thing is when Hank the Angry Drunken Dwarf was on that one show of it.
