Uncomfortably Unfunny
8 April 2019 | by matthijsalexanderSee all my reviews

Based on the trailer.

Jerk is a rather poor series that uses cerebral palsy as a sort of comedic tool. The script is somewhat unbelievable, the acting shabby at best and the comedic thing simply not funny.

I truly wonder how people who suffer from cerebral palsy feel about this series. Having any type of condition doesn't excuse poor or childish behavior, and somewhere I think people who suffer handicaps will be offended by this as they want to be seen as normal, function normal and not being portrayed as a joker.

osborne-90433 review, the only one (likely somebody who works on the show), speaks about thin skin and talks about PC as a reply to my review. PC has nothing to do with it. What is good (in my opinion) is good, what is funny is funny, and that which not funny is not funny. Yes, surely, beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
