Review of Drawn Together

Last night I was introduced to Drawn Together. It's an "animated reality show". They take a stereotypical Disney-esque princess, a "the smart black chick" from 1970s Hanna-Barbara, a Betty Boop clone, "Captain Hero", a Spumco character, an oh-so-fay elf videogame character, an uncouth internet Flash animation character, and a Pikachu clone, and put them all in a house to live together.

I had heard of it, but my ReplayTV stopped working in the interval that it premiered, so I didn't get to watch it `til last night.

It's a wonderful. Bizarre. Twisted. EXTREMELY Twisted. (As one reviewer put it... "You know how people say 'don't go there'? This show 'goes there'.")

The writers are still getting their feet under them, and they belabor some jokes too much, but they're improving, and I will add it to my regular watch list.
