Product Description

Product Description

Testees is a half-hour comedy about two best friends and roommates who work as test subjects for TESTICO, an experimental drug & product testing facility. Peter and Ron are thirty-something adolescents refusing to grow up and like most guys, seek fame, fortune, and females. In each episode the guys are given an experimental product, medication or treatment to test. They then have to deal with whatever ridiculous side-effects occur while trying to go about their lives.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the Best Shows Ever Aug. 8 2013
Verified Purchase
This show is GREAT. Too bad it is only one season. Do not like their Kenny vs Spenny, but this show is a riot. Not for kids or wimps, sexually graphic but hilarious. Wish they would consider a season two.

2.0 out of 5 stars Great potential, poor execution April 28 2011
By LeBrain HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
I watched Testees (great name) because of Kenny Hotz and Derek Harvie. Having been a fan of both during Kenny Vs. Spenny and The Tom Green Show respectively, I was automatically interested in Testees. Unfortunately the series failed to live up to its potential.

The premise: Pete and Ron are two best friends/roomates who work for Testico. Their jobs? To test new products to ensure they are safe. Unfortunately for Pete and Ron, inevitably, every week they must endure horrific side effects. For example: A new pheremone spray that has the side effect of making them irrestible to women that they would prefer to resist. A shampoo that causes blindnees. A new robotic vaccuum cleaner that becomes sentient and traps them in their home. A muscle relaxent that paralyzes Pete.

Part of the problem with the show is that, sometimes, it's too gross. Another problem is the lead actors Steve Markle and Jeff Kassel are just not funny enough to pull this off -- despite the presence of the smokin' hot Kim Schraner, who seems to have been written out by the end. And Kenny Hotz was only in a few episodes as well, making its appeal that much less for me.

However, if you're into the concept, give it a shot. It didn't appeal too much to me, maybe it will to you.

2 stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars I couldn't stop laughing May 5 2011
This is the funniest show to ever come out of Canada. Not for everyone, but if its up your alley, it will be your new favourite show. It kinda reminds me of flight of the conchords without the music.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastically Funny! April 16 2011
By Gary S - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Came across this series while up late one night watching TV, woke my wife up laughing so hard. It's a great show, and the shame is - it ended too soon. Very funny, low brow humor, but who can't think about "The Impaler", "Nami, Queen of the Stallions" and "Jellybean Omelet" without chuckling out loud?!

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply brilliant!! April 21 2011
By Daniel - Published on Amazon.com
I fell in love with this show as soon as I saw it! This is the first and probably last review I will write on here, but it had to be about this show. Not only funny, but perfectly written and perfect timing. The only bad thing about this show is that it was cancelled after the first season.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the funniest shows ever aired March 27 2011
By Karl Rove - Published on Amazon.com
Incredible humor. It's a shame it only lasted two seasons. If you like Better Off Ted, chances are you'll like Testees.

5.0 out of 5 stars Have seen it and now I'm buying it! Jan. 29 2011
By Marjorie Vanderlaam - Published on Amazon.com
Highly recommended. So funny that you will hurt in your chest for hours after watching. Subversive humor. Low brow but not John Waters disgusting. Do not watch with children under 14 due to subject matter. Whenever I think of the episodes now I just have to laugh and laugh and laugh.

5.0 out of 5 stars Guilty Pleasure Aug. 21 2011
By Daniel G. Lebryk - Published on Amazon.com
This series is a guilty pleasure. It's hard to figure out how I could get to like these two slackers so much. The humor is crude.

Ron and Peter work for Testico as human testers for the things Testico manufactures. The two live in a small two bedroom one bath apartment with hand me down furniture (more like stuff they collected at the curb) in a Pacific Northwest city. Their full time job is testing stuff giving feedback to Dr. Ng the head of research at Testico. The range of stuff they test is crazy, a robotic vacuum cleaner, a paranoia drug, to a perfume that attracts women.

The fact that they are "testees" and work for Testico evokes the word for male genitalia. The humor is mostly centered below the waist. But there is an interesting twist to the main joke in each episode. The perfume to attract women was an excellent parody of the Blair Witch Project and zombie movies. There's more going on here than just the random kick to the groin.

The first episode does start out slowly. By episode two and three, the series settles into a rhythm with some really funny jokes.

Ron is the more normal looking of the pair - yes he could be the Felix Unger (The Odd Couple) of the pair. Jeff Kassel does an excellent job with this character, he's the smarter of the two, but is also prone to lying. By far my favorite of the pair is Peter played by Steve Markle. He is the opposite of Ron, the Oscar Madison. He is honest and innocent to a fault. And there in lies his charm. About midway through season one they killed off the "hottie" of the show, Kate played by the beautiful Kim Schraner. In an episode her bar burns down, and she's never heard from again. The biggest clown in the series is Nugget, the schlub slacker that works in the bar, played by Joe Pingue. Occasionally Larry, the experienced testee shows up at Testico. Kenny Hotz does an excellent job as the 80's womanizer. Pingue is the only actor with a long resume outside of television.

Each episode is a nice bite sized morsel of around thirty minutes. Season one includes a forty minute bonus feature that is surprisingly funny. These would be rated TV-MA. There is no nudity. However, most of the topics have something to do with sex. There isn't a lot of strong language. There is no violence. Maybe a little drug use here and there, and, of course, scenes at bars where people drink. TV-MA is probably one of those great ratings for this, somewhere between R and PG-13.

I enjoyed this series a lot. It's a lot crude, but with heart. I care about what happened to these two guys.
