The top five moments from Ugly Americans season one

Written by

Comments: --

In its first season, Ugly Americans has brought the best out of horror with its satirical premise and violent, dark comedy. It proved to be one of the weirdest shows on television by pitting bearded little wizard men against each other (as show above) and continually punishing protagonist Mark Lilly’s bleeding heart approach to his job as a social worker.

The show vacillates from silly humor to seriously fucked-up scenarios with a lot of blood and gore. As I’ve said before, fantasy, sci-fi and monster flick parodies tend to lighten the mood of Ugly American‘s otherwise abrasive and super-violent humor, which it share with other cartoons from Augenblick Studios such as Superjail!.

So here are a few scenes from this brief, 14-episode glimpse of a world where otherworldly creature are integrating into society instead of hiding from it:

Mark Lilly takes his social services help group on an expedition to Hell. While there, he schmoozes with his half-demon girlfriend Cali’s family, who treat Halloween—or rather Samhain—as a Thansgiving-like holiday. As with almost every other episode of this charming little show, carnage ensues.

Zombie-brain love and more images of hell politics explored in Ugly Americans

Some may call it repulsive, but when a floating brain decides to try some zombie loving, no one can stand in the way. Main character Mark Lilly kind of takes a back seat in this week’s episode of Ugly Americans “Sympathy for the Devil,” which focuses more on the Great Brain’s wife’s affair with Randall and Twayne’s deal for a politician’s soul that goes awry.

OK, so maybe I forgot to mention in last week’s recap that this show has some of the sickest sense of humor on television. But for an Augenblick Studios production, that’s just par for the course. Be warned: This week’s episode “Kill, Mark, Kill” has tons of hyper-violent scenes, such as the lovely one pictured above.
