Important Things with Demetri Martin Season 1 - 4 out of 5
Demetri Martin is one of those creative comics you knew was going to get his own show on Comedy Central and, as it turns out, was not a bad thing at all.
All the things that makes Martin a unique comic are here and the show is genuinely funny. However, like many shows nowadays, the overuse of laughtracks begin to hurt the show--especially early in the season. As the show progresses, the tracks are taken out with the exception of pre-taped segments. I think we can thank CBS for this new trend as they learned that if you can't make your show funny, at least make people THINK it's funny by inserting a laughtrack. Thanks CBS, keep lowering the bar.
But unlike Two and a Half Men or How I Met Your Mother, Important Things with Demetri Martin is actually very funny and really entertaining.
