Hell on earth.
Hey, give me a break. It's a new episode.
What can I say? I love the idea of carpool buddies and wanted this show to be good. It isn't good. It's really bad. The episodes all seem to be steeped in predictable guy jokes and guy fear about women. But one character - the geeky, freaky Marmaduke - is truly original, and deserves a better show. He's played by comedian T.J. Miller (left), who appears in the movie "Cloverfield."
And what a long, strange trip it was.
Relive the terror!
