Did you catch Minoriteam?
I caught the premiere of Minoriteam last night, which, if you check Adult Swim's page for the show, is actually the fifth episode, "Tribe and Prejudice." If you're not up to speed, the show is about a group of super heroes who all happen to be minorities, and their powers are based on their specific stereotype. The show was co-created by Adam De La Pena of I'm with Busey, who also penned last night's episode.
Like most Adult Swim fare, the show clocks in at under fifteen minutes, which is all well and good since I don't think it could hold up much longer than that. While the episode did have some great moments, such as an Indian casino being closed down for being built on an ancient pilgrim burial ground, it feels as if it's mining a realm of comedy that's been drawn from time and time again. While I love the comic book aesthetic of the show, I feel like this kind of humor has been done before.
Nevertheless, I'm not passing judgment on it just yet, since I only saw one episode. Besides, it had enough yucks to make me want to check it out again next week. Whether I'll stick around beyond that remains to be seen. If you guys caught it, I'd like to know what you thought of it.
