    Did you guys and gals check out Moonbeam City last night after South Park?

    It's this Nagel print meets Archer send up of Miami Vice-type 80s detective shows.

    I thought it was pretty good.

    The visuals took me back to the early-mid 80s when I used to think Nagel was some kind of modern day Picasso! :rolleyes:

    Rob Lowe plays the main character, Det. Dazzle Novak, and he's not bad.

    It could use some more "punching up" of scripts, but all in all, it was good (but not quite as funny as Archer - yet...)

    Howard-related because Howard, like Dazzle's nemesis, Det. Rad Cunningham, is referred to as "King Dick of the Ass Forest."

    Never heard of it but I dig the 80's aesthetic.

    It's pretty cool, the writing could be better, but I agree with you about the aesthetics.

    It comes on Comedy Central right after South Park.

    I kinda miss Yucko's Brickleberry. Hopefully, Yucko can keep working in TV and make a name for himself outside of Howard...

    One of my buddies texted me earlier today that he loved it. I haven't seen it yet.
