No But does it deserve one star? No Not give the amount of really really badly written and mind numbing pablum currently out there This is funny I laughed at the characters not at racism etc It's clearly written The characters are distinctly drawn I give it 3 stars because there were a couple episodes that seemed to have no connection Like when Miss Ball goes to the doctor wanting a warranty that her fallopian tubes would not grow back Yeah yeah it's funny butwhat did it have to do with the story especially w
