Pre-production blogging resumes shortly.
In the meantime if you're not watching the new Adult Swim shows, you are genuinely missing out.
Frisky Dingo (pilot here), in Season One was a straight up parody of the supervillain vs. superhero genre -- if your supervillain had shitty organizational skills and Batman was not devoted genius billionaire Bruce Wayne but ... well, kind of a young George Bush. Season Two, however, has now pitched these foes into a more heated battle. They're running for President. The Democratic nominee is Killface, the supervillain, and the Republican is ... well, definitely a young George Bush. The electoral cyncicsm in America is being parodied, perfectly, by this odd cartoon. It is constantly "Sweet God they didn't just do that"-offensive seasoned with "Sadly, that is probably true". For example, Killface is considering choosing Rapper Taqui'il (a recurring character from Season One) as his running mate. This has not gone as hoped:
The latest episode can be found here, among other clips. DEFINITELY grab this ep before it cycles out for next week's. The "Democrat who finds Christ" bit is operating on multiple levels.
Previous episodes can be found on (ahem) other sources. Leaving only the last episode up FORCES me to recommend that people seek other avenues to enjoy your fine programming Adult Swim. Chump move.
Lucy, Daughter of the Devil follows the 20-something art student Antichrist, her father Satan's (odd) plans to bring about Hell on Earth, three Vatican Assassins, and D.J. named Jesus, all done by a creative team on a direct descent from Dr. Katz down through Home Movies. I'd watch the pilot first, here, then move into the new Season. It's a pity Adult Swim has that episode rotation policy in place, because although this week's "Jesus in the Desert ... on the way to Burning Man" is just okay, last week's ep with the Devil's Dildo factory was pretty goddam wonderful.
Why a dildo factory? As Becky -- the Devil's Advocate -- explains, by increasing masturbation in the world they can increase sin and bring about the Apocalypse. "... and since men can not possibly masturbate more than they already do, we've decided to focus on women."
