Rude, Crude, Obnoxious “Angel from Hell”

Facebook-Angel-From-Hell Jane Lynch was arguably the break-out star of Fox’s Glee, where she played cheerleading coach Sue Sylvester, a role for which she was awarded both an Emmy and a Golden Globe. Lynch moves from supporting player to lead in the new CBS comedy, Angel from Hell, which was apparently written specifically for her. In it, she doubles-down on the crude, brusque, and vulgar character portrayals that have become her trademark. In Angel from Hell, Lynch plays Amy, a boozed-up, foul-mouthed guardian angel who seems to be stalking straight-laced dermatologist Allison to make sure Allison is getting enough fun out of life. But this Angel from Hell’s guidance tends toward the carnal rather than the spiritual, as when she advises Allison to “let some random guy take you to o-town.” The first episode featured a non-stop stream of unfunny and pointlessly vulgar jokes, some that include children:
In front of a group of children, Amy tells a vendor, “It’s probably up your ass next to that giant stick… Hey, never said my show was rated ‘G,’ people. Never said it.” She pulls out a baseball glove and hands it to a young boy who is watching her perform magic tricks in the farmer’s market. “Now, if you’ll look in the pocket of your hoodie, I think you’ve got something for me.” He produces a flask from his pocket. “Ta-Da! My booze!” “I got this thing on my shoulder. Might be a mole. Could be a wax burn from some degrading role-play… I’ll pay cash. It’ll probably be all ones. And no, I’m not a stripper…” “You know what they say about a guy with a small carbon footprint? Small penis.” Amy starts listing personal things about Allison to "prove" she is a guardian angel. "Remember when you had your first orgasm and you farted a little bit?" Amy wonders what she should do if she sees Allison heading down a bad path, "What am I supposed to do, stick my head up my ass?" Allison and Amy are at a club where they see Allison’s boyfriend having dinner with her best friend. Amy tells Allison, "He's working on boning your best friend. They've hooked up once before, some light petting, I won't go into detail. Second base." Allison: "What?" Amy: "Boobs. And some dry humping. But please, I don't want to go into the details."
In episode two, the incessant, mindless vulgarity continued:
Allison is shown in a flashback with her friend, Kelly, and she is confronting her friend and saying that she thinks the friend's boyfriend isn't right for her. She begins to list the things and says: "And you said several times he suffers from premature ejaculation." The boyfriend flips on the light and has a birthday cake in his hands for Kelly and a living room of people looking shocked as they say, "Surprise!" Allison: " You didn't let me finish. Par for the course by the way."
