TruTV's Bobcat Goldthwait's Misfits & Monsters is a hit or miss anthology series with a lot of potential
"Misfits & Monsters is a predictably hit-and-miss mixture of amusingly bizarre, strangely inspired and interestingly misfired with a lot of potential to grow and evolve," says Daniel Fienberg of the anthology series premiering Wednesday. He adds: "The reality is that this format is perfect for what is so superficially amusing about Goldthwait's worldview, but it isn't all that well-suited for what he actually does best, which is starting a story in a place of near-grotesquerie and mining unexpected humanity out of the muck. What's so impressive about Goldthwait's film work, and also what makes it such an inquired taste, is that you begin his movies in a place of discomfort and general unpleasantness and end in places of unexpected emotion and sometimes even hope."
