Lil George - let's review

I meant to watch the first episode of Comedy Central's new cartoon that I told you about a few days ago, but of course I forgot to turn on the TV. Fortunately, the inimitable Capt. Fogg remembered to tune in and pens a review with his usual elegant eloquence.

Fogg is a brilliant writer and the review is probably better than the show itself. Here's the closer to tempt you into clicking over.
The picaresque first episode uses a competition to get the first kiss of youth as the grail the Weeble-like characters seek while destroying lives to get it. I think actually, that it's far more kind to show them thus: as childish, self involved innocents with undeveloped consciences, than to show them as they really are: childish, self involved sociopaths with undeveloped consciences, up to their knees in blood in their quest for power, glory and riches.

While you're over there, check out the rest of Fogg's blog. If Blogtopia was truly a meritocracy, he would be at the top of the A list.
