Once in a while a show comes around that you can immediately tell is something special. Shows like Arrested Development, 30 Rock and Wonder Showzen. It's fitting then that Jon Glaser a writer for Conan O'Brien and the creator of Wonder Showzen brings us the next truly awesome show on TV. "Delocated" is a show that incorporates the best of so many aspects of awesome television. It's a comedy Reality TV spoof that centers around a man and his family who are relocated to New York City after being placed in the witness protection program. Sounds basic enough. The absurdity and hilarity is revelaed in the pilot episode when it's divulged that the family has to wear ski-masks at all times and have voice modulators installed that lower their voices so they can't be detected when they're portrayed on their reality television series. "Delocated" doesn't have the shock value of Wonder Showzen but the sheer hilariousness of the main protaganists plights is unbelievable. Rather than continue with this pretty shitty recap of a really awesome show here are two clips from the episode entitled "Ska Mitzvah."
