I don’t know who’s running the show over at Adult Swim, but it’s safe to say that they’re a bunch of freaking geniuses.
For the first time on an American television network (not counting BBC America, which, you know, barely counts), the brilliant 2002 series Look Around You will be broadcasted starting on January 18.
I am a huge fan of Look Around You, and as you may recall from a year or two ago, devoted an entire week on the CDP to display some of the more spectacular episodes. It’s truly one of the greatest pieces of comedic satire ever created for television, and I strongly urge you, at the very least, to check out Episode 1 at the top of this post and decide for yourself. They’re only about 10 minutes apiece, and they’re almost all available on YouTube for those who don’t have cable. It should instantly resonate with anyone who went to a public school at any time over the last 35 years, and if that isn’t cool enough, it was created by a couple of the same guys that did Shaun Of The Dead and Hot Fuzz.
Check it out, schedule your DVR’s, sound off in the comments section and enjoy your day. There’s a huge CDP announcement arriving Friday, so please stick around for that.
