Damn, I love these forums. You all provide a ton of careful insight (as do Jim and A. Ron whenever they cover a show.)
I don’t have much to offer except Vera (and whoever wrote his lines) just blew me away. This was perhaps the most emotionally effective hour of tv I’ve ever seen. I even like Peanut... “It’s a metaphor. I thought you said this guy was smart.”
There’s a lot to like about this show; the story (a nuclear blast that only affects grown ups), the characters (including a 10yo pyromaniac, a jock turned samurai pacifist, and a guy just trying to find his girl), the bad guys (“Lord of the Flies” children) run amok in East LA plus pseudo zombies! What’s not to like?
There are a LOT of tip-of-the-hat tropes to past movies (Mathew Broderick as the HS principal!?, the action at the mall, etc.) and that just makes each turn more fun. A good drama-comedy. You guys should cover it...at least a little.
Dummy said:Watched the first two episodes and I think it's really cool. The first episode was good, but nothing amazing that everyone should see. The second episode was awesome and exactly my kind of trippy jam. I really hope it can keep up this kind of storytelling because it has me hooked. I now hope this can get some kind of Bald Move TV coverage.
just putting it out here that I figured I would check out this new animated series. It had Bob Odenkirk doing voice work, and I like his work. I’ve binged the first five (of 8) episodes and will probably finish it tonight. Definitely worth checking out. I started this thread to see what the rest of you thought of it as well. I’d say more, but I don’t want to spoil anything.
