Comedy Central Launches Raunchy Webseries ‘Biatches’

Biatches02c

This morning, Comedy Central debuted Biatches a new animated webseries made exclusively for release on their digital platform CC:Studios, YouTube, and the network’s mobile app. They made available the entire first season which consists of six shorts.

The show, co-created by Dana Min Goodman and Julia Wolov (MTV’s Faking It), is about junior high school bad girls Dana and Julia, who are forced into a special education program after being kicked out of their reuglar school. Bento Box is handling animation duties under the direction of veteran Simpsons board artist and Good Vibes co-creator Bradley Ableson.

Biatches was announced last November as part of Comedy Central’s initiative to build up a roster of shareable content for their various digital distribution channels. It joins the site’s existing digital cartoon content, which includes stand-up/animation mash-ups called Humanimations and In Security, a webseries about museum security guards. Other Viacom-owned properties are also making the shift to providing digital-only content. Last month, Nickelodeon launched its first online-only animated series Welcome to the Wayne.

    Normally I’d be behind (most) anything that gives Bento Box a paycheck…but…but…this? Sure, it has the manic, juvenile style and feel that made shows like Ed, Edd, and Eddy popular but they replaced all the charm with painfully bad stereotypes and sex gags.

    I’m struggling to picture a target audience.

      It’s not made for us.

      • End Denver

        I realize that…but in my humble opinion anyone immature enough to be amused by this shouldn’t know what a vagina is yet.

  • ReindeerFlotilla

    I thought Gainax did it much better when it was called “Panty and Stocking”.

    • http://sobieniak.blogspot.com/ Chris Sobieniak

      Well, now they have competition!

      • Duglus

        I wouldn’t call this competition.

  • B.R.D.

    So like a “new” Beavis and Butt-Head but with chicks?

    • http://sobieniak.blogspot.com/ Chris Sobieniak

      Seems like it, and it only took some 20 years!

    • Krypton Keeper

      No, beavis and butthead could be subtle at times. This is not.

    That is 3 minutes of my life I will not be able to get back.

    I think the guidelines that have been applied to Dave can be applied to the clip that is embedded within this article…

    “Defamatory, rude, or unnecessarily antagonistic…” (and not even that funny).

    Did someone know I’m Croatian so they picked this episode in particular to make me hate the show even more?
    This was just so embarrassing to watch. “Embarrassing” as in, I felt embarrassed for the people who made this who actually thought this was funny. There isn’t even anything here that would count as a joke. Did no-one bother to read the script to this? Oh wait, I’m assuming there was a script. Silly me. Not only was the “humor” unbelievably bad, the animation is as well. How can something this badly animated be released with today’s technology?

    And how lazy do you have to be when you can’t even find out what shirts hardcore Croats wear? Just freakin’ google “Croatian shirt”, it’s not hard (Easier than finding out that “oosh” actually means “louse” in Croatian). But I guess I’m asking for too much intellectual effort from the people who would participate in making an abomination like this.

    It’s pretty stunning how the kind of stuff which a decade ago would have been a throwaway gag parodying depressingly crude web content on a prime-time animated show overlaps almost 1:1 to the current writing and production standards as represented by this gem. There’s some kind of four-dimensional punchline somewhere on all this, but I guess it manages to quantum-cancel itself out.

  • Mister Twister

    I am not going to watch it. Not because there is something wrong with the content, no. It’s freaking ugly, and I am easily turned away from ugliness, and that style is just terrible.

    Although, I guess some people will like it. I won’t be amongst them though.

  • Ara

    At first, I thought the crude art style and the fact that the main characters were girls would be charming–like early South Park, but with a female spin. But…the unfunny, disgusting, and downright offensive undercurrent to each webisode is just. Wow. No thanks.

    Now I want to know what Dave said…

  • Crispy Walker

    What a waste of time. They should have talked to the chicks from Broad City to get some good jokes, cause this was just awful. At least the girls from Broad City can take a juvenile idea and still make me laugh with it.

    Biatches!!!! Hilarious – I want to see more… Breath of fresh air from too predictable TV. LOVE IT!!

  • Krypton Keeper

    Being 110% honest, this is the kind of stuff you would see on sites like Mondo Media in the EARLY 2000s, except not nearly as good. I can’t think of anything worse than this.

  • bianca

    Panty and Stocking is tame compared to this. At least it had better animation.

    • http://sobieniak.blogspot.com/ Chris Sobieniak

      Maybe Gainax will give us another show where a kid with mental problems is forced to pilot a robot to save humanity, oh wait, I think they did that already.

  • Tre

    So they dropped Futurama for stuff like this? *facepalm*

    • jonhanson

      Judging from the writing and animation they could probably make 24 hours of this stuff for the price of one episode of Futurama.

      • Krypton Keeper

        The voice acting sucks too, it feels like they’re just reading from the “script”.

  • George_Cliff

    What an absolute waste of creative resources. On the other hand in a time when the First World’s most pressing problem has shifted from omnipresent ennui to the equally vexing dilemma of the entertainment deluge, it is nice when something like this comes along that is so positively unbearable and clearly unappealing that it makes our choice of what to watch just the teensiest bit easier.

    So thank you for that Comedy Central, I guess?!..

  • OdysseyTag

    Think what scared me the most about this is that the screenshots could actually pull off as children’s book covers or birthday cards (obviously excluding the vulgar depictions).

  • AmidAmidi

    It wasn’t the opinion of your comment; it was the crude manner in which you expressed it, which was disrespectful to the artists who worked on the show and may be reading the site.

    • Tempo

      Aren’t more than half the articles on CartoonBrew lined with snarkiness and disdain for the industry?

  • http://sobieniak.blogspot.com/ Chris Sobieniak

    I also don’t care for the premise of this being about special ed. kids as well (having known that too well, I don’t want to relive that).

  • Gerry

    If shows like this are any indication, the lowest common denominator now seems to be the prevailing cultural force. I shudder to think what will be considered entertaining 20 years from now, created by a generation brought up on this lazily crapped-out brain rot.

  • Sick of It All.

    What the f— has happened to us.

  • kenny

    My gosh. This is racist, anti-Semitic, and just generally hate-fueled.

  • Krypton Keeper

    How I miss the days of Hard Drinkin Lincoln and Mr. Wong. I can’t believe i just said that.

  • Gerard McGrory

    What a disgrace! :(

  • Texas Brony

    Wow……….. “comedy” central. I cringed.

    Terrible! Awful! Disgusting! …and the rest of my comments are unprintable!
