Shout by Andrew Bloom


Thanks very much, @April! I'd heard about the darkness of the show, but what's surprised me is how it has two shades of darkness -- one that's very broad and a little juvenile like Orel getting addicted to crack, and one that's very deep and kind of poignant, like him having to say goodbye to his neighborhood sweetheart because of religious difference. The former kind is par for the course for Adult Swim, but the latter kind is the sort of melancholy that really only its [AS] cousin Futurama is apt to pull off.
