Back with the 9th episode of the Winter 2012 comedy series, Kill Me, Baby! At this point, there’s no need in explaining how anything happens, it’s always “Yasuna gets excited over something, suggests her and Sonya do something in turn, Sonya refuses, Yasuna goads her into doing it…”. Occasionally Agiri gets involved, which is the high point for me.
I’m not saying KMB isn’t funny anymore, I still get a few good laughs and I’m not going to stop watching, but it’s just not as funny as when it was new. And I believe this is because they’ve consistantly used the same (or at least very similar) setup for every joke. Occasionally, when Agiri or the Unused Character get involved, it’s gets really interesting, but those situations are few and far between, in my opinion.
Can KMB bounce back and leave the series with a hilarious ending? Not if they don’t break the mold and get some new setups. It shouldn’t be hard, you’ve already got a trained assassin, a ninja who hocks cheap goods, and a disgruntled character…what do?
Not a very long post, just had a few thoughts to throw out there. What do you think? Should KMB keep with the setups? Try something new? Or is there no hope, has KMB’s comedy come and gone?
Until next time,
