Set in a high school in a small Florida town (aaarrrgh! us again!), Sit Down, Shut Up follows a bunch of oversexed, underbrained teachers with names like Stuart Proszakhian and Willard Deutschebog — regrettably, the high-water mark of the show’s humor — who talk dirty, take drugs and generally act like reanimated zombies from a 1969 locker-room skit.
Staleness, however, ranks as a virtue in Sit Down, Shut Up, for the show’s token stabs at topicality are truly appalling. They include a creepy, conspiratorial Muslim janitor and a pulchritudinous blond religious zealot who was selected to teach science even though she doesn’t believe in it: ”Everyone knows it’s just a bunch of voodoo the Jews came up with so they could charge us for medicine and stuff.”
“Sophomoric” says USA Today.
