Moral Orel: Season 2

2x12 Repression

Pretty weak, blunt, and frankly kind of dumb stuff. The satire can be a little exaggerated on this show at times, but Principal Fakey's willful blindness as to his own infidelities and ensuing haughtiness about it in the vein of circular logic that since he's a righteous man, he can't be committing sins was just a bridge too far conceptually to work for me. The whole conflict was pretty weak, and the resolution with Orel using the same logic on himself to avoid having to deal with his own guilt at messing Principal Fakey up with his advice was a little too cute. The only really amusing part of the whole thing was Nurse Bendy's boredom at it all.
