10-minute episodes of stop-motion animation about a kid living in a small town in the Bible Belt who constantly misinterprets advice from his alcoholic father and is then beaten with a belt at the end of the episode and then learns the real lesson, which is invariably horrifying and bigoted. Some time into the second season it switches gears from being a comedy with satire that makes South Park look almost tame into a bleak, nihilistic drama about the boy's family imploding.

You'd ****ing love it.

Have any of y'all watched Wild Wild Country (I think that's the name) on Netflix? About the cult in Oregon?

This was just an average day in the life for half of us at MB as children, I'm assuming.

Well I don't not like it so far; the problem is I'm really desensitized/easily bored when it comes to this particular type of humor since I grew up on it, so, most shows like this don't hold my attention for long. But I'm assuming it gets better based on what you said? (I generally prefer bleak and nihilistic when it comes to my stop-motion tv/film choices) however I've actually met people exactly like those in this first episode so I guess I can't really complain about that aspect.

(Some of these ancient reviews on IMDB are hilarious. "This cartoon is really meant for left wingers like me or maybe atheists or perhaps people WITH A SENSE OF HUMOR." and my favorite: "This show is great, don't listen to the tool, listen to TOOL" ..this is such a painfully 2006 comment)

I started it and found it to be really uncompelling after the first 20 minutes. Does it get better?

Allegedly it does, but I stopped watching about 20 minutes in, myself so I don't really know. I love cult-related stuff and true crime docs but I'm rather picky about it. Garden-variety new age hippie cults tend to bore me. (Where are the documentaries about isolated Appalachian witch cults??)

It comes through in bits and pieces in the first season, more and more in the second, and then starting from the season 2 season finale the entire rest of the show is just bleak and depressing.
