  • Bob gets an upgrade, hilarity ensues. :D

    I can't believe some people honestly think that the
    "Oblongs" rips off of "South Park." First of all, there's not as much swearing in this show as there is in "South Park"-which I consider a good thing. Second, this show is written with a lot more heart and soul than the "South Park" guys could ever come up with. I think it's mostly because since the "Oblongs" aren't your average normal everyday family (in fact they're far from average,) because they don't really blend into society as well as other people do, they get belittled, pushed aside, and especially in Bob's case made fun of. People always made fun of his size and having no limbs, but when he got a robot body, people sure changed their tune about him. But when a woman needed rescuing, only Bob sans robot body could save her. That's what I like about the "Oblongs." It's a show that really trys to tell you that it's not how you look on the outside, it's whats in the inside that counts, and Bob proved that on the inside, he really counts a lot. Best part of all, the popular, 'normal' hill people got their comeuppance when a shark took control of Bob's old robot body and started eating them all alive! Now that proves that there is justice in the world! :D
