I honestly think the two best shows currently on television are cartoons - but then, hey, you get to set your own boundaries with cartoons, so that lends more creative liberty to the brains behind it all.
Anyway, Rick and Morty is astonishing, I thought it was just a straight-up Adult Swim comedy at first, but from the “Mazzy Star” episode on (if you know what I mean) it’s become something altogether transcendent.
And then Adventure Time, a show I wish had been around when I was an adolescent, no show I’ve ever seen has managed to capture all the confusion and seeming importance about sex, identity and relationships as that show. It’s going to be single-handedly (or multi-handedly, I suppose, there are a lot of talented people at work on that show) responsible for a generation of well-balanced kids…
Calamity Jon (or C-Jon as no one calls him and rightfully so) speaks the truth.
