Season two of “The Whitest Kids U’ Know” brings back immature fart jokes, songs about marijuana and government corruption, and extremely taboo sketches. Shown on the Independent Film Channel (IFC) and now on DVD, “The Whitest Kids U’ Know” has evolved since its first season, which was shown on Fuse. This means that nudity and swear words riddle their production. This show is comparable to a real-life version of Adult Swim’s “Robot Chicken.”
The second season of “The Whitest Kids U’ Know” is not quite as good as the first. Like most shows, the writers put all of their best jokes in one season and ran out of ideas for the second one. The humor became more fart joke oriented rather than a mockery of social norms.
One constant was the view that European History was documented much differently than how it actually occurred. The show portrays that in situations like slavery and massacres of Native Americans, the Europeans were not actually enslaving people, but doing what those specific people asked in the first place. These events are true tragedies, but the show finds a good middle ground to make light jokes about the subject.
Many of the sketches from the show are popular clips on YouTube, but the average viewer does not know that this show is currently airing its fifth season on IFC. Though often very juvenile, “The Whitest Kids U’ Know” is a great show that is not afraid to make jokes on difficult and more serious subject matter as well. Even though season two is not as good as season one, the third season, which was most recently released to DVD, is even better than its predecessors.
