  • This show is turning the tide. Once you get past theinitialjarring nature of the 1st episode, the true genius andhilaritystarts to shine through. This is a really underrated show and needs a second look.


    The pilot was, disturbing to say the least: a seven year old boy getting hot for an old bag? Not something I'd expect to see outside of small Chi-porn circles, but push the initial shock and disdain aside and embrace the show's genius, you might learn to like it.

    As an animator I still have a sore spot for Flash/Vector based animation, but I will admit the style is growing on me. The characters are starting to flesh out and the plot is evolving above the immature absurdity of the pilot and becoming a show worth watching - a hell of alot better than what The Simpsons are putting out nowadays. - When I said in my review for the pilot, "The show has potential" it definatley does and it's using it. The writing is funny, a kind of intelligent funny that is rarely seen outside of cable television.

    As for the plot? Charming.Richard De Longpre (The guy you love to hate) has his ego up his hide again and forces the school to host a "gay dance" after Allen mistakes a bully for a friend in his quest to be "cool".

    Long story short, there's enough here to make a great show, if they keep it up at this pace, it could join the leagues of South Park.
