I'm not going to say Code Monkeys is the greatest show ever, but the short-lived show it holds it's own as a ballsy attempt by G4 to make some original programming.
The show was created by Adam de la Peña, writer for Crank Yankers and Jimmy Kimmel Live, as well as creator of Minoriteam. If you don't know what any of those are... it doesn't matter.
The show revolves around Dave and Jerry, two programmers at the video game company GameaVision in the 1980's. The cartoon is, appropriately, made of pixilated characters much like those you would see in video games of the time. All manner of crazy things happen in the company, like a visit to a nazi camp, creation of the E.T. video game, and simply searching for the best weed in the world.
As the show revolves around video games, it features an astounding amount of video game references, both old and new. Any game fan should at least watch an episode or two, just to give it a shot. It is filled with a good amount of toilet humor, but there are quite a number of witty retorts to balance it out.
BTW All the movies and shows I preview on this blog (unless explicitly stated otherwise) are available on Netflix's instant stream. I'm also not limited to netflix reviews (I plan to talk about lots of medias) but that's what I've had on the mind recently! K bye!
