More weirdness

April 8, 2005

O’Grady, one of my favorite shows, is finally back with some new episodes on The N. (It airs at 9:30 p.m. EST.)

For those of you who haven’t seen it, it takes place in a town where random, quasi-supernatural effects make high school even more of a burden than it normally is. Some memorable episodes have featured short-term memory loss, visible (and painfully honest) thought balloons, and random manetization.

As funny as the situations are, they wouldn’t hold up nearly as well without the endearing characters, terrific voice work, and conversational, almost improvisational scripts. It’s from some of the same people who created the equally hilarious Home Movies, which can be seen in Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim line-up.

Watching O’Grady does kind of make me crave TiVo, though, as I would really love to zap many of The N’s millions of commercials out of existence forever and ever.
