In two weeks,
Fox ABC will debut a new animated comedy from Mike Judge called “The Goode Family.” It’s basically “King of the Hill” but with liberal douchebags instead of regular folk. From the show’s propaganda department:
True to their name, the Goodes are an infuriatingly smug and self-righteous bunch: a nuclear family that’s hell-bent on maintaining the world’s smallest footprint. Gerald and Helen Goode drive a hybrid and live by the tenet WWAGD (“What would Al Gore do?”). They’ve named their adopted African son Ubuntu (in a mix-up, he turned out to be white South African). They feed their pet vegan dog food (he sneaks out at night to eat woodland creatures).
It sounds like a good premise — there’s definitely a wealth of material to work with — but I’m not feeling it. I don’t know if it’s just the animation I don’t like, or if the humor’s too broad or what, but I’m giving it a thumbs-down. Hey, I’m a blogger, I get paid to rush to judgment. Megan Fox sex tape! Photoshopped! Simpsons did it!
