Watching Online Free Glenn Martin DDS Show | Cast And Crew | Review And Preview

Filled under:

 This show is really funny, and next to 30 Rock, is one of the few TV shows I actually look forward to seeing ever week. It's such a weird fit for Nick at Nite! I think that's why a lot of regular Nick at Nite viewers post such nasty comments about the show -- it's not aimed at them. And the people who WILL like it haven't discovered it yet. Hopefully, they will. It really belongs on Fox or Comedy Central.

My kids enjoy this show, but there's also another layer of comedy which goes over their heads, and entertains adults. Lots of political humor, bashing the left and right, sly references to obscure TV episodes, and some sex jokes. Glenn just might turn out to be a closet homosexual,Jackie is starting to feel bad about her lack of eco behaviors, so she has Glenn take them to an eco-friendly neighborhood.

A star-studded voice-over cast featuring Kevin Nealon (Weeds, Anger Management), Catherine O'Hara (For Your Consideration, Chicken Little) and Judy Greer (27 Dresses, Arrested Development) has been tapped for Nick at Nite's upcoming stop-motion animated comedy, "Glenn Martin, DDS" set to premiere this Summer. The first television production to come from Michael Eisner's Tornante Animation, "Glenn Martin, DDS" follows a beleaguered dentist and his family trading in the suburbs for life on the road. Crisscrossing the country, the Martins are beset by an array of colorful locals and crazy situations in locations ranging from Las Vegas to Amish Country. Many of the characters they encounter are voiced by enough instantly recognizable guest stars to fill a parking lot of RVs, including: Chrissie Hynde, Betty White, Gene Simmons, Wendie Malick and more.
Glenn Martin, DDS follows the adventures of a traveling dentist and his family. After learning that his favorite childhood park is about to be destroyed, Glenn takes his family (wife Jackie, hormone-addl.

Glenn Martin, DDS has received mixed reviews from critics, garnering a 48/100 from Metacritic based on 9 reviews after the series premiere. Part of the criticism was leveled at the overuse of laugh tracks (which was permanently removed a month after the show's premiere.) Mike Hale of the New York Times said, "Glenn Martin, DDS is pretty much laugh-free (though it does have a laugh track)."

The Hollywood Reporter said, "the jokes, the characterization, the complete "re-imagining" of everything. Just understand this: "Martin" is an animated show with a laugh track [sic]. Imagination comes in handy, though, in trying to figure out how someone approved this concept, labored on this and then let it free into the world."

The show is the brainchild of former head of Disney/ABC Michael Eisner, who explained, “It's about a family. It's about the strength of the family. It's obviously irreverent and hopefully not irrelevant, funny, but it's a family that needs each other and learns through experience. It's contemporary.“We did not want this show to look like/feel like any other show in television. We want it to be original and unique. And there are a series of very successful, particularly on Fox, animated shows which are two-dimensional animation. They are completely different. I don't want to date myself too much and go back to The Jetsons and some of the first animated shows ever on primetime television, which were on ABC.
