This is an animated sitcom from Mike Judge, the creator of Beavis and Butthead and King of the Hill; the series premiere was tonight. It's about a very liberal family that are vegans. Their 16 year old son Ubantu was adopted from Africa, but as they explain in the show, they wanted to adopt an African baby, but forgot to check off black, so he's a white African American (I thought that this was funny, since there was a lengthy thread here about white African Americans). There are really funny scenes in a Whole Foods type store as well as a plot about abstinence. All in all it was pretty funny, and really did poke fun at extreme liberalism, but also a little at the right with the abstinence story.

Mike Judge also wrote Idiocracy and invented Dale Gribble; he's an equal opportunity offender.

There's no such thing as a conservative artist, so your thread title is....

Sounds funny; did you like it? Do you think it will do well?

DALE GRIBBLE!!!

I was going to say that I started watching King of the Hill and seems to be about a conservative family.

SO now they are trying out a liberal family, eh?

Hey i liked King of the Hill and that had nothing to do with politics. I'm sad to see it go, and to a show that odds are wont be as big. There is something about the Hill family that is so damn funny. That boy aint right, lol

Huh? I don't get what you mean. 90% of country music stars are conservative. As for the show, it was pretty funny, played up a lot of stereotypes that are totally ignored by all other media/entertainment.
