One of the hallmarks of true friendship is having someone who will never say "no" to your very worst ideas. A real friend is more of an enabler, serving to test the bounds of human stupidity with you, just as you would for them. Enter Detroiters, a new show coming to Comedy Central. From Executive Producers Lorne Michaels & Jason Sudeikis, this series follows two best friends, Sam (Richardson) and Tim (Robinson), who live by the adage "no idea is a bad idea," as they navigate their way through Detroit's ad scene.
The pair's constant, unwavering support for one another only drives them further into bewildering, hopeless situations -- like taking a pile of expired diet pills or trying to hide an unconscious body in broad daylight. It feels borderline dangerous to say that the stars of Detroiters are lucky to have one another, but their relationship remains surprisingly sincere and full of heart, to the point where it's enviable.
Sometimes it's just a matter of making the US Department of Defense look, like, REALLY cool.
Actual impending doom like global climate change or mass extinction just makes people bored.
In some cases, the Marvel source material just did better.
