Your Pretty Face Is Going To Hell: Season One (2013/Adult Swim/Cartoon Network/Warner DVD)

Picture: B- Sound: B- Extras: C+ Episodes: C-

What if Hell was like The Office only with blood and rapture?

From the creators of Squidbillies and Aqua Teen Hunger Force, Your Pretty Face Is Going To Hell: Season One (2013) is a sometimes-funny show that appears on Adult Swim, the only place it could possibly exist aside from maybe Comedy Central. It is ridiculous and extremely low budgeted with terrible green screen mattes and bad makeup but I feel that cheesy look is part of the point much like Tim and Eric Show. There are some pretty funny bits in the show, like a calendar that has Monday listed as every day, some funny sight gags, an episode where a musical is made to honor Satan (who is exceptionally well played Satan by veteran actor Matt Servitto), and a competition over a glass of ice water.

The show is a live-action workplace comedy about Gary, an associate demon, as he attempts to capture souls on earth in order to climb the corporate ladder of the underworld. Gary hopes to advance in Hell, but he may be too stupid, lazy and kind-hearted to realize his dreams of promotion. Meanwhile, Gary's intern Claude is more talented, more devious and will do whatever it takes to impress Satan.

The six episode season features the episodes Welcome to Hell, Bone Garden, Take Life By The Horns, Schmickler 83, Devil in the Details, and People In Hell Want Ice Water.

The show is presented in standard definition with an anamorphic 16 X 9/1.78 X 1 widescreen transfer and a lossy Dolby Digital 5.1 track which has become DVD standard for new releases. Being that it is a low budgeted show, I don't feel the desire for a Blu-ray of this one really drawing many people in.

Extras include Deleted Scenes, Commentaries, an Original Short , Behind the Scenes, and Auditions.

At times humorous but not 'classic' by any sense, Your Pretty Face Is Going To Hell is typical Adult Swim/college humor that will either charm or offend you. I wouldn't want to watch it with a bunch of right wing Christians but if you find religious humor funny, then this may be worth a spin.
