I never found Jack Ass funny. One question I ask about the show was Why? Why would anyone do these things such as letting scorpions sting their penises. My second question is why would anyone think it was funny. Was America becoming so childish and moronic they would set the bar so low on what is being called entertainment? Next thing you know we will be watching a massively obese spoiled  child trying to be a beauty queen, or something like a show about extreme closeups of dog noses on wide angle lenses. 
Pass the cough syrup I want to watch TV.

thezigrat Agreed. I find the entire premise quite stupid.

I avoided Jackass for a long time, saying I'd hate it...then I saw the movie one drunken night.  From the opening sequence with Carmina Burana I was hooked.  I came to respect the stunt work and clown humor in the end.

kalron27 It's sort of Buster Keaton-ish, right? Physical humor. I don't think you go into a Jackass movie or tv episode and expect to watch Masterpiece Theater, it's a cheap laugh, and at least it's chaotic TV at its best.

fancylad But, Buster Keaton was scripted, with all the actors in on the joke.

fancylad Ok I admit that I liked the one where they rented a Mercedes and entered into a demolition match, then tried to return it.
