Except for Dog Bites Man, no TV series has induced more rib-hurting laughter in me. I adore this show.
In my humble opinion, Sarah Silverman is freaking hilarious. What she says is funny, but it's *how* she says it - subtle inflections and mannerisms - that makes her extraordinarily funny.
And if you think that she is spewing vulgarities and bigotry just to get a few shock-giggles, you aren't paying enough attention. She is more morally-serious than you probably realize. She does these things to magnify absurdity--to make them ironic and dumb.
And Brian and Steve... oh my, what a pair. Other than Troy and Abed on _Community_, I haven't seen a better dynamic between two characters.
You won't find many (any?) shows as hilarious, conceptually interesting, and risky. May you make many more TV shows, Sarah Silverman.
